Dear all,

 

Since DFM 4.0.1 migration to One Command I have in my SnapShot name + or - and Lag with GMT TimeZone

There is a solution to modify the %T (TimeStamp) content for SnapShot Naming.

Regards.

    As far as i know %T is a mandatory setting and cannot be changed. Unless you use the script to generate your snapshot names.Below is the options for the same.

     

     

    [root ~]# dfm options list dpSnapNameOption

    Option           Value

    ---------------- ------------------------------

    dpSnapNameOption global-format

    [root ~]# dfm options set dpSnapNameOption=junk

    Error: dpSnapNameOption: junk must be global-script or global-format.

    [root~]# dfm options list | grep -i dpsnap

    dpSnapNameFormat                      %T_%R_%L_%H_%N_%A

    dpSnapNameOption                      global-format

    dpSnapNameScriptPath

    dpSnapNameScriptRunAs

     

     

    dpSnapNameOption: Naming option for snapshots in Protection Man-

               ager. The value can either be global-format or global-script.  When

               user sets the value as global-format, they can specify the format

               in dfm global option dpSnapNameFormat. When the user sets the value

               as global-script, they can specify a script path in the dfm global

               option dpSnapNameScriptPath and the user account in option dpSnap-

               NameScriptRunAs.

     

               dpSnapNameScriptPath: Absolute path to the script that will gener-

               ate the snapshot name to be created by protection capability of

               OnCommand.  Path can only be 127 characters long.  Snapshot name

               length can only be 124 characters long. Name would be truncated if

               it exceeds that limit. For name collisions, numeric suffix would be

               added at the end of the snapshots. Snapshot name can have ASCII

               alphabets, ASCII numbers, underscore â_â, hyphen â-â, plus sign â+â

               and a dot â.â. All other characters will be converted to character

               âxâ.

     

               dpSnapNameScriptRunAs: On Unix systems, user account to run the

               script specified in the option dpSnapNameScriptPath. It can only be

               64 characters long.

      Hi Adai

       

      It gives a Problem with the Timezone (fe +0200) in the Snapshotname. Operations Manager is not able anymore to access the snapshot:

       

      Snapshot Name created within Protection Manager: 

      2012-06-06_2000+0200_daily

       

      Error Message from Restore Wizard from Operations Manager, because of the + in the snapshotname:

      Error: Error: Can't retrieve the list of files that can be restored: Can't list the content of the backup directory /vol/Volume/userhomes on vfiler:/Volume_backup. The reason is Unable to open directory /vol/Volume_backup/userhomes/.snapshot/2012-06-06_2000 0200_daily/: No such file or directory..

       

      When I take a snapshot without a + in the Name (fe snapvault snapshot --> Filer(000000000000)_Volume_backup-base.300) Operations Manager has no Problem to List the Files in the snapshot.....

       

      Do you Know this behaviour?

       

      regards

      Thomas

        Hi Thomas,

             Can you paste a screen shot ?  As I am little confused of what you refer to by Operations Manager. Is it the web UI ? Or the JAVA Thick client NMC ?

          Hi  Thomas,

               I tried the same and I am able to do it without this error in case of vfiler volumes and snapshots.Below is my snapshot name.

           

          fas-sim-1*> vfiler run vFiler_Src snap list vfilerSnapshotName

           

          ===== vFiler_Src

          Volume vfilerSnapshotName

          working...

           

            %/used       %/total  date          name

          ----------  ----------  ------------  --------

            1% ( 1%)    0% ( 0%)  Jun 03 14:02  dfpm_base(vfilerSnapshotName.474)conn1.0 (snapvault,acs)

            2% ( 1%)    0% ( 0%)  Jun 03 14:02  2012-06-09_0309+0530_daily_vfilerSnapshotName_vFiler_Src_vfilerSnapshotName_.-.wfa_treeq

          fas-sim-1*>

           

          Whats interesting in your snapshot name is that it doesnt have a + 2012-06-06_2000 0200_daily

           

          Tried doing the same to my snapshot name and am able to hit the error you mentioned.

      HI Adaikkappan,

       

      Regarding the global-script can you provide us a kind of sample or an how-to

       

      Output format etc..

      Can we use in the name few informations like %R %L %H %N %A?

       

       

      Regards
