Netapp Data Broker 1.0.1 - prescripts and postscripts not working



I'm trying to use the prescript and postscript option provided by the SnapCenter Plugin for VMware vSphere.


As described in the "Data Protection Guide for VMs, Datastores, and VMDKs using the SnapCenter Plug-in for VMware vSphere" on page 28, a perl script can be placed on the Netapp Data Broker Appliance. This script can be specified in the backup policy.


This works fine,  script is executed BUT


When I look at the environment variables that are available during prescript and postscript I see this:







During the Prescript and Postscript phase I see the same value for variable "Backup_Phase". For the postscript this is not correct.

Also the other environment variables mentioned on page 29 are not available.


Question: Can someone confirm if this is a know issue and/or this is going to be fixed ?

I have an update on this issue:


Netapp has recognised this as a bug. there are 2 bug ID's (duplicate) 1284616 and 1275798.

This issue is scheduled to be fixed in the next release of Netapp Data Broker.
