EVA8400 BC/CA RSM Jobs Triggering from Host Side?

Dear friends,

We are trying to implement BC on EVA84000 and RHEL 5.x for daily Snaps/testing, I have installed RSM Server and Host agents. My Question is once we Customised and Saved the RSM Job Scripts for BC/CA how can we trigger/run from the Host side when they want to start the RSM scripts?
As our client dont want to run the scripts from RSM automatically and want to run whenever dba/sysadmins thinks its safe and no I/O activity?

Please Advice

Thanks

Hello.

I could be wrong, but i'm quite sure you cant execute it directly from the host agent.

The host agent is primarily for executing parts of the job (e.g. mount disks, do quescing etc..) and the RSM server executes various other tasks - doing the actual snapshot on the array via commandview...

Thanks for the reply.
Is there anyway we can trigger RSM Job scripts through CRONTAB from RHEL5.x ?
Is anyone know ?

Thanks

Last time I checked, the was no utility available on the host like in the old EVM/BC V2 environment. You had to open a scripting session to the RSM server and start the RSM job that way.

Thanks for your reply.
What i understood is, we can run the RSM Job Scripts from only from RSM Server by scheduling and can't trigger from the host ?
But, when i contacted HP EVA Support they said we can run RSM Jobs from Crontab! I just want to make sure with someone who already implemented before i am making my testplan!
Is anyone else can help me out..

Thanks

OK; I've made a new check ;-)

according to the latest Command Line User Interface (CLUI) reference, there now is a 'remote client' - look for 'clui.sh'.

Thanks a lot. It worked , I created jobs in RSM GUI and running from the Host.
