-h EMM_server | volume_database_host

This option is only applicable for NetBackup Enterprise Server.

The name of the Enterprise Media Manager database host that contains information about volumes. If no host is specified, the configured EMM server is used by default. For communicating with pre-NetBackup 6.0 systems not in the EMM domain, this server is the EMM server.

For systems before NetBackup 6.0, ensure the following: The specified host matches the EMM server name that is associated with the robot or set of stand-alone drives, as indicated in the device configuration.

-verbose

Selects the verbose mode.

-b barcode

Specifies the barcode that is attached to the volume.

-rt robot_type

Specifies the robot type of the robot where the volume is located.

-rn robot_number

Unique, logical identification number for the robot where the volume is located.

-rh robot_host

Name of the host that controls the robot, where the volume is located.

-rc1 rob_slot

Robot coordinate 1 is the slot number in the robot where the volume is located.

The following applies only to NetBackup Enterprise Server:

Do not enter slot information for Media Manager API robot types. The robot software tracks the slot locations for these robots.

-p pool_number

Index of the volume pool that contains this volume. You can use vmpool -listall to determine the index for a given pool name.

-mm max_mounts

Maximum number of mounts that are allowed for this volume. Only used for non-cleaning media. When this limit is exceeded, the volume can be mounted for read operations only.

-n cleanings

The number of cleanings that remain for this volume. Only used for cleaning media.

-d "media_description

"Media description of the volume. The double quote marks are required if the description contains any spaces.

EXAMPLES

The following command adds volume AJU244 in the NetBackup volume pool to the EMM database on the host that is named llama.

The volume has the barcode AJU244 and is in slot 2 of TLD robot 1. For write operations, the volume may be mounted a maximum of 1000 times.

The following point applies only to NetBackup server :

Only one host (the master) exists, so the -h option is not needed.

Note:

This command is usually entered on only one line.

# vmadd -m AJU244 -mt dlt -h llama -b AJU244 -rt tld -rn 1 -rh llama
 -rc1 2 -p 1 -mm 1000 -d "vmadd example"
