I'm also interesting in doing a SMTape using NetBackup. It should be used to get a LPAR Filesystem ( no database) to tape. All should be managed using Snap Creator. Here my theoretical steps
- Snap Creator triggers LAPR to get file systems consistent via pre command
- Snap Creator triggers snap shot
- Snap Creator triggers NetBackup to run job via post command netbackup/bin/bpbackup -i -p policy_name -s schedule_name -S....
The specifiy NetBackup policy is careate with the set type - smtape option and the whole source vol is selected. Currently this job failes with "Error ndmpagent(pid=3144) source servername: DATA: Backup terminated: backup configuration failure (2) on RPC error: ERROR: BAD ENV OP (for /vol/volname)" Any idea?
Furthermore I want to have used the snapshot created by Snap Creator for the smtape process. I've see that there are environmen variables available e. g. SMTAPE_SNAPSHOT_NAME but how I have to use them? And is there any NetApp licensing needed? In document it says no but the NetApp option snapmirror.enable can only be set to on with a vailed license.
Thanks for any feeback
