Hello Guys,

I think you would have looked at my Article "Low Disk Space" and some of you may intersted in enabling VSS as a Snapshot Provider.

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/articles/l...

But you may lazy and worry to to do this for muliple no of clients, here is the Script to Enable this in your environment for multiple no of clients.

Also Netbackup client service should be restarted once you enable VSS; this also covered in Script ZIP.

Zip file Contains:

VSS.vbs - Script to enable VSS Provider(Place Client names in C:\Sc\Systems.txt file)

Service_Stop.vbs - Script to stop the Netbackup Client Service in Clients(Place Client names in C:\Sc\Systems2.txt file)

Service_Start.vbs - Script to start the Netbackup Client Service in Clients(Place Client names in C:\Sc\Systems2.txt file)

Hope it will help you much.

Thanks,
karthikeyan Sundaram.
