NCF scripting to purge volumes

Hi,

I have several clustered volumes and want to use a scheduled task to purge
these volumes. A PurgeVol.NCF script contains all relevant comands and is
stored on each node's SYS volume.

Script contents :

PURGEVOLUME SYS
PURGEVOLUME VOL1
PURGEVOLUME VOL2
PURGEVOLUME VOL3

NOT all volumes are normally attached to the same node. When I execute the
script, I immediately quits and nothing is purged. It ONLY runs fine when
ALL volumes are attached to the same node ...

Many thanks for your help
Romain

You may need a more sophisticated scripting environment, where
conditionals are possible. The one that comes to mind is TaskMaster --
check if TM Lite is enough for you, maybe. Or check out Caledonia's purge
utilities, they might be more script friendly. Maybe the bash shell is
rich enough for the scripting you need.

The sysops probably have additional suggestions.
