Change node to non default management class?


How do I assign one node (all files and all directories) to a management class that is not the default management class? This node is a Windows node.


ADSM.ORG Moderator
You cannot do it that way. You have two options:

Option 1:
  • copy the domain that this node is part of to a new domain (HELP COPY DOMAIN)
  • update the new domain to use a different default management class (HELP ASSIGN DEFMGMTCLASS)
  • update the node to be part of the new domain (HELP UPDATE NODE)
  • you will need a new backup schedule in that domain for that node (HELP DEFINE SCHEDULE)
Option 2 (I don't like this one, but it's valid):
  • create a client option set (HELP DEFINE CLOPTSET)
  • add options to that client option set (HELP DEFINE CLIENTOPT) with these 2 options:
    • include ?:\...\* mgmtclass2
    • include.systemstate ALL mgmtclass2
  • update that node to use that client option set (HELP UPDATE NODE)

Can I just add these statements to my inclexcl file on that node?
include ?:\...\* mgmtclass2
include.systemstate ALL mgmtclass2

Not those exact ones, but those appropriate for your systems non-default mgmtclass which the node is associated to, yes... ;) Either via the dsm.opt file or an inclexcl file, whichever option you're using.

You could. Depends if you want to manage this from the server or the client. .

And like IlCattivo said, use your MC name.
