Mounting recent Snapshots with SDCLI on netbackup backup host for Tape Backups

[ Edited ]

Community

I'm struggling to grasp the capabilities of the sdcli snap mount command.  My goal here is to mount the LUN from each exchsnap__DBNAME__recent snapshot and cut this to tape for long term storage.  I would really like to be able to mount these from my windows netbackup media server rather than from the exchange server.

A:  Is that possible?

B:  If possible, what's the correct syntax for this?

Here's what I've got so far:

C:\Users\admin_bwing>sdcli snap mount -r petw2010mb01-iscsi -k d -s petnaf02:/vol/mb01pf01/exchsnap__petw2010mb01__recent -d c:\backup\pf

Initializing...Unable to connect to the LUN in Snapshot.

Error: The data area passed to a system call is too small.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Brian

Re: Mounting recent Snapshots with SDCLI on netbackup backup host for Tape Backups

sdcli snap mount -r petw2010mb01 -k d:\pf01 -s exchsnap__petw2010mb01__recent -d c:\backup\pf01\

I needed to call out the mount point on the remote server (bolded above) and just call out the name of the snapshot I wanted to mount (also bolded)
