VCB and Netbackup.

Hi All,

I am having issues getting the following to work automatically. It seems to work when run manually. I've never really dealt with VCB and Netbackup before to I don't understand it.

I have downloaded the following bpstart_notify.bat from VMware:

echo backup started on %1 using policy %2, bpres = %6 >> bin\BP_RES.txt

call "%VCBBASE%\netbackup\pre-command.bat" %2

echo %errorlevel% > %6

Here is the contents of pre-command.bat

@ECHO OFF

REM A workaround around the fact that only the first 10

REM command line options are easily accessible in a DOS

REM batch file.

shift

set arg=%0

set jobname=%0

:loop

shift

IF %0.==. GOTO save

SET arg=%arg% %0

GOTO loop

:save

REM Call into the VCB framework.

for /f %%i in ('"%VCBBASE%\netbackup\gettimestamp.bat"') do set timestamp=%%i

cscript /nologo "%VCBBASE%\netbackup\command.wsf" -pre "%VCBBASE%" %arg% > "%temp%\pre_%jobname%%timestamp%.log" 2>&1

@ECHO OFF

Has anyone got any ideas?

Thanks

Mike.

Which version of NetBackup are you using?

Why you do not use the native integration with VCB?

Hi Andre,

I have spoken to our backup guy and he tells me we are using NetBackup 6.0 MP7.

Could explain what native integration with VCB is? I.m not familiar with this as I've not done much backup configuration.

Thanks.

ok... no native integration (if only for 6.5.2).

A way to make VM backup inside NetBackup. You have some new menu to specify VCB proxy, and you can select VMs from you backup policy.
