SC4.0 OSSV Support

marks

Does anyone have a write up of the steps required for enabling OSSV backup via the SC 4.0 GUI? I need this for Linux and Windows clients.

Thanks,

Mark

It is a CLI only option

You can in GUI download config, edit it locally, and then upload but you need to change the OSSV* settings yourself. In addtion you need to do a snapvault status on OSSV host and add that to VOLUMES parameter. Format is "host:<path>" for example VOLUMES=myhost:C\

I think in windows you have to leave off the ":" as we use this as a separator.

I paste you a sample of configuration options that work for us:

VOLUMES=HOFDBDC2001:SystemState #(this is the source dir on the OSSV agent)

NTAP_USERS=secondary:user/passwd

NTAP_OSSV_FS_SNAPSHOT=N

NTAP_OSSV_FS_SNAPSHOT_CREATE_CMD01=

NTAP_OSSV_HOMEDIR="C:\Program Files\NetApp\snapvault"

NTAP_OSSV_ENABLE=Y

APP_IGNORE_ERROR=Y

The parameter to ignore app errors is needed, because otherwise the SC job always puts out a failure, because it thinks the two 'Transfer Error' lines in the ossv output (as follows) indicates an error in the application quiesce.

I took Marcel's example above which was non-Windows

and have pasted relevant parts from my config file -- which will show windows syntax

VOLUMES=MJK_4_NTAPSC:C\OPT\PlaySvBackup

NTAP_OSSV_ENABLE=Y

NTAP_OSSV_HOMEDIR=C:\OPT\snapvault

NTAP_OSSV_FS_SNAPSHOT=N

NTAP_OSSV_FS_SNAPSHOT_CREATE_CMD01=

etc.
