Re: Business copy EVA

Hi

Thank you . I am looking for the "User guide" on how to implement it ? I do not see in any of these documents.

Mainly I am looking for the sequence of commands .

Thank You

Re: Business copy EVA

Do you already have BC installed on your SAn Appliance? If so, then the easiest way to make sure things are working... and to get some hands-on experience with "implementing" is to run the Business Copy Manager from the SAn App Browser interface.

Once in, you can create a new jopb from a template. The Templates give you some basic configurations. Click on one that looks appropiate and it populates the job windows with the necessary commands and comments.

Right clicking on the commands gives you the option to edit the command. The help files are usually very useful.

If you need help installing, then simply put the CD into the SMA's CD Rom drive, browse to the SMA's inteface, click Settings... Maintanance...Install Software...Select the proper source (CD)...select the Business Copy Server 2.2(default selection) and click install.

This installs the Server piece. Once done, reboot the SMA. Take your CD and install the client software on the host you need it on. After instyallation, reboot.

When everything is rebooted, your BC Manager should be popluated with a storage subsystem AND a host and you can go back to toe first section of this post.

If you don't have the media, I can make available the "Docs" CD for BC 2.1a It is only about 8MB.

Re: Business copy EVA

The CLI (Command Line Utility) interface is called EVMCL and runs on the host. As far as I can tell, there is only help via the browser interface on the Storage Management Appliance available.

On the other hand...
If you don't intend to use the BC framework formerly called EVM (Enterprise Volumen Manager), but you like to directly initiate a snap on the EVA - this is done through Command View EVA or SSSU.

In the last case, grab the 'HP StorageWorks Storage System Scripting Utility Command View EVA Reference Guide' from here:

Re: Business copy EVA

Ah.. it was a permission problem. Should work fine now. (browser/command prompt/ftp client/etc).

Re: Business copy EVA

Hi


I got all these documents from the doc.hp.com already. I was looking for "Online Help & User Guide" or the actual software CD,so that I can install and play with it.

Thank You

Re: Business copy EVA

You won't be able to "play" with it if your EVA does not have a license for it.

As for the actual software, that I can not just give away. HP would not like me too much.

If you have the license for the Snapshot feature for your EVA, then I suggest you contact HP to obtain the latest copy of the BC software.

That is the only acceptable advice/solution I can give online.
