Client initiated backup

Jump to solution
Hi,
Does anyone know if it is possible for DP6.0 to initiate backup via scripts from the client side? Something comparable to "user backup" of Veritas Netbackup?

Thanks,
Farrah

If the Client system has the Cell Console (User Interface) component installed then cli cammands can be run on the client similar to how they can be run on the Cell Manager. To start a filesystem backup the command is `omnib -datalist [BackupSpecName]` Simply script this on the client. To start integration backup run `omnib ?` and look at the output for the systax.

Can this be done in red hat linux clients?
I don't think there is a user interface for linux. We also do not have an installation server for linux

Hi,

Basically, you can install a GUI in any PC or windows system that you have, just for managing the cell manager and clients.

Also, you can use the omnib to run backup by CML.

Hi,

As pointed out, you can start a backup from any client witch has the Cell Console component installed. The GUI is not avialable for all platforms but, for most platform there i a CLI (command line interface).

Just use the "omnib" command to start a backup from any client.

If you, for some reason, want to schedule a backup from a Linux client, you can start "omnib" from cron.
