Re: Mirror Clone

Hi,

i'm implementing mirror clone on an EVA4000.currently, i would like to fracture my clone and present it to a HP-UX server to do back up.

however SSSU doesnt have the option to let me mount the file system.thus i presume i will need to write a script and incorporate into Data protector to mount the file system.

does anybody have the script or have done this implementation before? mind to share the script with me? thanks.

You can configure an RSM job to do all the things and lauch it via CLUI, including mounting and error handling, and lauch remotely the RSM job.

Hi Ivan,

but i thought mirror clone can only have the option to do it on SSSU rather than RSM?

Sorry, I was not aware of that.

Re: Re: Mirror Clone

I think Ivan was right. Look into using RSM and creating a job that will take care of the fracture, present, vgimport and mount of the file system. There should be a template to help you get started. Once you have the RSM Job defined you can create a script that's called from data protector as a pre-exec to connect to the rsm server (telnet to port 9000) to kick off the job.

The other option is to use sssu to fracture the mirror clone, present to the backup node (what you've done so far) then script the rest of it outside of sssu. Chances are that you can perform the task manually once to see all of the steps involved. Once you see the flow, work on scripting it from there. If you're not up to the scripting challenge, then you may want to go with RSM. You'll also need to install the RSM host agent on the hp-ux server.

Re: Re: Mirror Clone

The templates are provided through RSM.
