Automating Storserver ABC Backup

#1
I have a customer with a couple of OpenVMS servers that we installed the ABC backup application from Storserver.

We were able to do the initial configuration and we have no problems running manual backups.

The issue...how do I automate the backup on the OpenVMS box?

Either I am blind or the document accompnying the software is weak in this area.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

you have to either run a DCL script that calls the dsmc command (forgot the syntax) of sched a command from the TSM server again forgot the OpenVMS specific command.

that how we did it @ M&M MARS
