BRICK - version 2.00 for DP 8.XX and 9.0X on HP-UX/Linux/Windows

Hi Community,

 

today I released the latest version of BRICK - Backup Related Information Collector and Keeper - version 2.0.

The tool is celebrating the third "birthday" and has become very popular over the years and the new version has a lot of new features you might interested in to document your Data Protector environment.

 

Check it out at http://www.data-protector.org/wordpress/brick/

To see a working demo use http://www.data-protector.org/brick20demo

 

If you like the tool, spread the word, assign Kudos and tell me your success story with the tool.

 

Best regards

Daniel

Daniel,

In most environments we need run the -full option of the BRICK because this option generate the reports of last  seven days. 

If this environment has more than 75 clients, the DP DLC take much time to run. Is there any way to skip the DLC ?

hi,

I tried using the new version in a cell manager with DP 6.11 but got the following error message: "Cannot find command C:\Program Files\OmniBack\bin\omnidbp4000.exe"
 
What is this error?
 
 
Thanks

Hi,

 

please watch for update (new version) where the error is fixed.

Will provide a new version within next 2 weeks.

 

Best regards

Daniel

 

BTW: Please consider to upgrade to newer version, as 6.11 is out of support.

I have recently downloaded and ran several brick reports and it is fantastic.  I am new to DP so this is helping out a lot with documenting etc.

[HP ARIES32]:   /root/brick/brick saved to /root/brick/core.brick
Memory fault(coredump)

Would a stack trace be helpful too?

Hi,

 

the trace file would not help for the first reading. If possible recreate the problem using the -debug option and send the generated debug log file.

 

Best regards

Perhaps not for you.  But I'm an expert.  🙂
