I am looking to throw together a quick GUI front-end for the BrightStor 11.1 TapeCopy command. Thing is that CA promises to have a GUI version in the next release so I don't want to invest too much time and effort. Has anyone put together anything like this?

The command has a few parms that I would prefer to grab from pick lists and/or folder names. An example CL is as follows:
TapeCopy -s SRV2_D -d LTO -t M-SRV2-SAT-05/28/05 -c TM-SRV2-SAT-05/28/05 -m MLY_TAPE -g

-s = source group name
-d = destination group name
-t = source tape name
-c = destination tape name
-m = assigned media pool
-g = merge detail

I turned on the local catalog DB, so the tape names are in the individual folder names beneath \Program Files\CA\BrightStor ARCserve Backup\CATALOG.DB as tapename.RID which makes getting "-t" easy. Since I only want to copy the monthly tapes, I just need to pull every foldername that starts with "M" and strip off the extension.

Also, since part of the source groupname "-s" is in the tapename, I can rip and manufacture it. The destination tapename "-c" is simply the source name with a T prefix and the destination groupname "-d" and "-m" assigned media pool and "-g" never changes.

I just need a KiXstart (sic) to get my form going, not being much of a KF coder and what with all the new ways to generate picklists. Anyone care to advise?

TIA

Cool idea. Are you looking for a "wizard" style thing (it asks you the questions in stages. multi-part forms) or are you looking for a "dialog" style thing (where all the lists are presented on one form) ?

Not supposed to "look" a gift horse in the mouth, but am looking for a two-part form. Part 2 woul be spawned from the 1st and set filter criteria and present the results in a list.

Eh.. WTF.. you guys were too slow to respond so I started without you. Basically, I grabbed my Computer Rename form and did some R&D (reuse and disguise) and got a skeleton together that kinda looks like this. It is not very well disguised and has no working code yet, but at least I have a bit of a form.

Weird thing with the 2nd (filter) form. If you mouse over titles, they disappear.

Dang... my R&D skills are not helping to convert $Form2. If I replace $Form2.Frame with $Form2.GroupBox, none of my label, textbox, optionbutton, or checkbox objects are visible. Can someone please help me out with this "new school" way?

The groupbox is created like this:

$GroupBox = $Form.GroupBox()

Then the controls that appear inside the groupbox, are created as "children" of the groupbox, like this:

$Button = $GroupBox.Button()

The bounds of the button (Left,Top,Width,Height) are then specified in client co-ordinates (relative to the parent GroupBox), for example to position the button in the top left corner of the GroupBox ...

$Button.Location = 0,0

Thanks Shawn, I did good. Form is now new school enough to do a daddy proud.

Another Q.

Can I set $List2 ListBox so that I can scroll up and down but not select? Don't want to grey out the whole list, just don't want it to highlight an item if clicked on.

Also, I need to verify that for example, if $List1.Text = 'M-NOTES-TUE-05-31-05' and if $List2 has TM-NOTES-TUE-05-31-05 that I log to $List3, a warning and maybe bring the $list2 item into view.

Is is also possible to make this script do DLT tape copy process D2D2T...or D2T
so my for backup DISK2TAPE, with a kix script (scheduled) to be move to tape daily or weekly and after backup 2 tape FILES ON DISK ARE(CAN BE)DELETED.

my GROUPS are (1) DISKPOOL medianame "mm/dd/yy hh:mm pm"
(2) TAPEPOOL medainame "mm/dd/yy hh:mm pm"

my MEDIAPOOLS are (1) *DISKPOOL*
(2) DAY
(3) MONTH
(4) YEAR
and media names DAY,WEEK,MONTH,.....

for the tapecopy command (same as above, ontop)

hope some can do something for me 2
thanks

Hi CharlyD and welcome to the board.

Sorry to hit you on your first post, but... please don't HiJack topics, please post your own topic and if needed include a link to this post asking for assistance.

When we see a new post on this someone should be able to help you with what you're asking.

Thanks.

I suppose you could cut out all the GUI stuff and schedule it if so inclined. There is no need to actually delete the FSA (disk) copy of the tape. The retention time will take care of it.

Since posting this, I found out that 11.1 has a problem with the local catalogue db, wherby it prunes it after 30 days. I opened a ticket with CA and 11.5 is purported to fix it. My CD should arrive any day now. I hear that 11.5 has a GUI out for tape copy. I will give it a look/see and if it does not live up to expectation, might post my latest version of the kixform app.

ah you have ordered 11.5, to expensive still for me..... i tried to cut and pasted your script but got errors in line162 and so on. the Prunes tine you can adjust in i thought the serveradmin => database. do you have a new version of your script, is it a problem to put it online or...?

hope you can help me...

NTDOC: ok i will do next time ok)

I am in the unfortunate position of my backup methodology being declared as noncompliant for SOX. I will outline briefly what and how I do things and hope that someone can either corroborate or dispute my assertions that I am compliant.

We do GFS backups to the SAN without verification since there is no potential of media problems (bad tape). The SAN is tested by nature of actual frequent restores and monthly tape copies. All requested restores normally are done from the SAN with the LTO tape copies as extra assurance for long term archiving.

At the beginning of every month, I run this scripted TapeCopy of every monthly tape as per the following example:
tapecopy -s NOTES_D -d LTO -t M-NOTES-TUE-05/31/05 -c TM-NOTES-TUE-05/31/05 -m MLY_TAPE -g

With the -g switch, after the copy has successfully completed, the physical LTO tape is then read and merged into the catalog DB. All this is then logged to a tpcopyxxxx.log file, a sample of which I have enclosed. I contend that the TapeCopy tests both the SAN *virtual* tape's integrity, and also the physical LTO tape's integrity. The physical LTO tape is further verified because the merge operation reads from the physical tape. In my opinion, the entire copy and merge operation is more of a test of the LTO tape media than any single test restore.

The SOx auditor does not accept this and insists that I must test each and every tape by doing test restores and that I must then retain the test results for two years.

The problem I have with that is two fold. First, my scripted TapeCopy is asynchronous (disconnects from the actual submitted job) so it does not know when the copy and subsequent merge operation completes so that I could automate a sequenced test restore. The system will not queue up multiple requests, so to play it safe, I copy one tape per day. I rely on the tpcopyxxxx.log for verification. The second problem then is that if I did test restores, the resultant logs would be buried in the one large (32 meg) monolithic BrightStor.log file. It would be a tedious task to extract the specific job details to satisfy SOx reporting.

I am being told that I must maintain the logs for two full years! I suspect the tpcopyxxxx.log files would never be pruned automatically but the BrightStor.log I doubt would retain two years of details and even if it did, finding and extracting the specific request would be very tedious.

Dumb question... what does SOX stand for?

SOX = Sarbanes-Oxley - a pair of US Senators with too much time on their hands.

SOX = yet another stupid methodology that everyone wants to say they're compliant with, but will forget about in 5 years time. Kinda like "the ISO 9000" de jour.
