NetBackup tpconfig command line

Created: 24 Jun 2011 • Updated: 12 Sep 2011 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I was instructed to use the command line tpconfig -d to obtain the drvindex needed by tpconfig -delete -drive <drvindex>. Rather then go with my best guess I figured I would ask.

Given the output below, would the correct <drvindex> be 2?

 tpconfig -delete -drive 2 

 C:\Program Files\VERITAS\Volmgr\bin>tpconfig -d
Id  DriveName           Type   Residence
      SCSI coordinates/Path                                            Status
0   IBM.ULTRIUM-TD4.000  hcart  TLD(0)  DRIVE=3
      {3,0,0,0}                                                        UP
1   IBM.ULTRIUM-TD4.001  hcart  TLD(0)  DRIVE=1
      {3,0,1,0}                                                        UP
2   IBM.ULTRIUM-TD4.002  hcart  TLD(0)  DRIVE=4
      MISSING_PATH:{2,0,3,0}:F09FD58004                                DOWN
3   IBM.ULTRIUM-TD4.003  hcart  TLD(0)  DRIVE=2
      {2,0,3,0}                                                        UP 

Thanks, probably a basic question but I simply do not deal with product on this level.

The 1st column is drive index :

0    =  IBM.ULTRIUM-TD4.000
1    =  IBM.ULTRIUM-TD4.001
2    =  IBM.ULTRIUM-TD4.002
3    =  IBM.ULTRIUM-TD4.003

The "Missing Drive" is Index 2.


You can also use 'tpconfig -l' to list/display config. I find this output easier to read.

Column Id represent's the Drive Index Number.

Looks like Drive's IBM.ULTRIUM-TD4.002, IBM.ULTRIUM-TD4.003 are pointing to the same drive.
