Compare data between multiple pools

Hello,

DP9.09, i have multiple media pools with 1 tape in every pool:

Pool-A 
Pool-B
Pool-C
.....

I run a backup job of a server into Pool-A, followed by a copy job from pool a to pool b and than from pool b into pool c.

Is it somehow possible to check if the pools are identical? I thought about a list of files form the catalog with the associated pools. At the moment we check if the block size of every tape is the same, but that's a rather vague way to check this.

Kind Regards

Hello @sofromt,

I would recommend using the Object Copies Report, Copies column (omnirpt -report obj_copies -timeframe 24 24) and Objects Latest Backup Report, see Last Copy Full, Last Copy Incr column (omnirpt -report obj_lastbackup -timeframe 24 24).

Hi Sebastian,

i already thought about this report, but the problem with this approach is that i only know how many copies i have, i can run 3 copies on the same tape into the same pool and i still get "3 copies" but i need to be 100 % sure that the copies are all on different tapes in different pools.

Something like a catalog list of the files in the different pools would be nice, this way i could script a diff check between the different generated file lists.

Hi @sofromt,

What about the Extended List of Media report? You can run it twice on each pool and compare the results. Does this work for you?

Hi,

this way i just get a list of Tapes in the Media pool (Medium ID, Label, Location, Status, Protection, Used MB etc) but no information for the data on tape.

Hello sofromt,

Hope to make a comment.

You can try these CLI to get information on your media pool.

omnimm -show_pools <PoolName>

omnimm -list_pool <PoolName> -detail

I would take you have the media pool name.

You may want to check the output of the above omnimm.

Hope this helps

Rgds,

Sherman
