Wll inside the config file you will see PRE_* and POST_* commands. If you want to run commands on server you set SERVER: <cmd> and if you want to run commands on agent you set AGENT: <cmd>.

For example run command "echo test" on server as post ntap command:

POST_NTAP_CMD01=SERVER: echo test

on agent

POST_NTAP_CMD01=AGENT: echo test

If you are running commands on agent you also need to edit the scAgent4.0.0/etc/agent.conf file and add permission to execute commands:

command: * - this will allow all commands, not so secure

command: echo test - this will allow the echo test command

You can have multiple commands each specified using command: <cmd>

The only other thing is set all PRE_* and POST_* commands to "echo test" to see where they run within workflow, then you can decide which ones work best for what you are trying to do.

This is documented in IAG (admin guide) and requires playing around with so make sure you have the time to get into this. Most of all have patience and experiement

Good luck!

Regards,

Keith

And once i set the above parameters then i can configure everything from GUI right ?? Or only scripts can do the work ??

You cant set pre/post cmds through GUI directly. You can edit config file directly via VI or you can download config through GUI, update config locally, and the upload config and write over it.

Snap Creator default installation comes with MaxDB plugin, which is supported by NetApp support.

You don't need to do the community plugin install for that.

Oh Thanks !! is this same applies to Oracle as well ?? and i have my Snap Creator server installed on the Windows 2008 and i will be able to have my Agents on Solaris , HP-UX and Linux is there something like both server and Agent should be on the same O.S ??

Re: Snap Creator MaxDb Scripts

sivar

Yes. Snap Creator also comes with prepackaged plugin for Oracle.

You will also get NetApp support when using Oracle plugin.

You can have cross platform support for running server and Agent.
No need to be on the same OS.
