SC4.0 OSSV Support

Does anyone have a write up of the steps required for enabling OSSV backup via the SC 4.0 GUI? I need this for Linux and Windows clients.

    It is a CLI only option


    You can in GUI download config, edit it locally, and then upload but you need to change the OSSV* settings yourself. In addtion you need to do a snapvault status on OSSV host and add that to VOLUMES parameter. Format is "host:<path>" for example VOLUMES=myhost:C\


    I think in windows you have to leave off the ":" as we use this as a separator.

    I paste you a sample of configuration options that work for us:


    VOLUMES=HOFDBDC2001:SystemState #(this is the source dir on the OSSV agent)






    NTAP_OSSV_HOMEDIR="C:\Program Files\NetApp\snapvault"





    The parameter to ignore app errors is needed, because otherwise the SC job always puts out a failure, because it thinks the two 'Transfer Error' lines in the ossv output (as follows) indicates an error in the application quiesce.

    I took Marcel's example above which was non-Windows

    and have pasted relevant parts from my config file -- which will show windows syntax
