What is the sample output of dfm backup create command?

PrashanthVenkatesan

I am automating dfm backup create archive [filename] command through workflow.I want to know some static pattern in the output to implement logic.

 Can you share the exact output of this command?

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Here you go:

 

C:\Program Files\NetApp\DataFabric Manager\DFM\bin>dfm backup create archive
Disabling Performance Advisor.
Copying keystore for backup ...
1 File(s) copied
SQL Anywhere Backup Utility Version 16.0.0.1644
(74614 of estimated 74614 pages, 100% complete)
Database backup completed
Waiting for existing writes to stop, which could take a few minutes.
Please be patient ...
Creating the archive ...
Verifying the archive ...
Enabling Performance Advisor.
Completed backup C:/Program Files/NetApp/DataFabric Manager/DFM/data/dfm_backup_5.2.1_CMode_2015-05-14_01-49-13.ndb.

C:\Program Files\NetApp\DataFabric Manager\DFM\bin>

 

But it takes some time to get completed depending on the size of your DB. So take care of the command time-out issues.

 

Isuggest you use ZAPI to get this done instead of running CLI command using ssh. But this is again a design choice.

 

warm regards,

Is this question related to WFA?

Are you trying to automate taking of dfm backup using WFA?
