Data Protector Express command line options?

Hi all,

Is it possible to start Data Protector Express with command line options like a job name?


I want to use a workflow system to do backups when certain conditions are met. The according backup software should not run all the time. Data Protector Express is just used to bring some files to tape and to hold media sets.


As soon as several parallel VCB mounts are completed, a workflow engine starts a backup software and passes a predefined job as command line option. When the backup is completed the software should close.

Is it possible to follow this approach with HP Data Protector Express at all?

Thanks in advance,
