ArcServe CA_BACKUP rotation job with Disk Staging - Is it possible?
Posted on 2008-10-11
I'm trying to achieve the creation of a backup job using ArcServe CA_BACKUP command line. I want the job to be a rotational job and use diskstaging before migration to tape device. I can create a rotational job no problem or I can create a non rotational job that stages correctly to disk and migrates but I can't seem to have both. When I submit the job it fails straight away with (Unable to get rotational media name. mediapool prefix=POOL1 EC=-1) Here is the command line below:
ca_backup -source <comp1> ntagent -username caservice -password <password> -source <comp2> ntagent -username caservice -password <password> -source <comp3> ntagent -username caservice -password <password> -source <comp4> ntagent -username caservice -password <password> -diskstage staging -maxstreams 30 -incdiffbackup -copydatatodestination afterjobends 0 0 0 0 -group tape -rotation -mediapool POOL1 -jobunit off overwrite SUN-DIFF -jobunit diff overwrite MON-DIFF -jobunit diff overwrite TUE-DIFF -jobunit diff overwrite WED-DIFF -jobunit diff overwrite THU-DIFF -jobunit full overwrite FRI-FULL -jobunit off overwrite SAT-DIFF -at 10:00
If I remove the diskstage switches this submits fine but I need the diskstaging to work as well. Grateful for any thoughts.
