OpenVMS disk shadowing manual

Greetings to all ...

I need a quick and detailed explanation of disk shadowing. Does anyone know where I can get a .pdf file on this topic?

Thanks!
Phil

and

http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/732FINAL/DOCUMENTATION/PDF/aa-pvxmj-te.PDF

Please note that the HBMM documentation is not in either of the above books; you'll need to find it in a V7.3-2 HBMM patch kit. It may be in other places; it hasn't made it into the standard doc set yet.

Phil,

I concur with Rob Brooks on the appropriate citation for the documentation set.

If you are interested in non-traditional uses for shadowing, you may also be interested in my presentation, "Migrating OpenVMS Storage Environments without Interruption/Disruption", given at this year's HP Technology Forum. The slides from that presentation are available at http://www.rlgsc.com/hptechnologyforum/2007/1512.html

Phil,

the HBMM documentation (Host Based Mini Merge) can currently only be found in the HP OpenVMS Version 8.2 New Features and Documentation Overview manual:

Re: OpenVMS disk shadowing manual

HBMM documentation is also available in VMS732_HBMM-V0200.PCSI-DCX_AXPEXE downloadable from the patch ftp site.

run that on an alpha, it will produce DEC-AXPVMS-VMS732_HBMM-V0200--4.PCSI, then use

$ product extract file vms732_hbmm /select=[SYSHLP]VS_HBMM_VMS732-V0100.PDF

and it will extract the PDF file you default directory.

I am not sure how different it is from the documentation Volker referenced.
it depends

Ummm. This is a "Product Description File", the content of which tells PCSI what to do with the files in the kit. It is NOT a "Portable Document File" readable on a PC with Adobe Acrobat... Type the file and you will see what I mean.

What you're thinking of, the kit's PDF file, has the extension .PCSI$DESCRIPTION in the kit.
