Powershell job definition and NDMP
I am trying to automate my backup job of a NAS (Netapp) because I have a lot of volume that are create /delete regulary and I don’t wont’ maintain via the classic interface selections in jobs.
The goal is to automate selection in jobs or create automatically job with a list of the current volumes on the NAS.
PowerShell looks like to be the solution but I am facing of "Server Agent " problem.
As you probably now to create a job you have to indicate the Server Agent,
I can get the list of the agent server by the following PowerShell command: get-BEAgentServer
Sadly, all the NDMP "server" aren't listed in the list....(but appear in GUI)
So how I can set up a JOB to point to a NAS device without see the "agent server" ?
I read on others posts that people use a workaround by creating "symbolic link" that point data to volume....but that work only with volume that contain data (not for example the LUN data emulation on Netapp) and of course I don’t wont to have a huge list of symbolic link on my server. Plus I don't think that the backup will be efficient with big data (no DNMP stream in this case....)
Somebody have a solution ?
