Bill,

Did you try the suggestions I made in my earlier posts on this subject? If
not, you should try them. I'd like to know what happens if you map the
drive, then refer to it by share name (i.e. "dsmc i \\machname\q$")

Regards,

Andy

Re: Backup completion / BACKUP_END on network FileSpaces?






Andy,
        Here is some more information on the system Ted had posted about.
He was
covering for me while I was out ill this week. The DSM.OPT file for that
node specifies:

DOMAIN C:
DOMAIN D:
DOMAIN M:
DOMAIN Q:
DOMAIN S:

and no other domain statements. When the incremental backup starts you get
these messages. See that the Q: drive is listed differently??

04/03/2004 01:59:12 Incremental backup of volume '\\sgtpepper\c$'
04/03/2004 01:59:12 Incremental backup of volume '\\sgtpepper\d$'
04/03/2004 01:59:12 Incremental backup of volume '\\sgtpepper\m$'
04/03/2004 01:59:12 Incremental backup of volume 'Q:\'
04/03/2004 01:59:12 Incremental backup of volume '\\sgtpepper\s$'

When the incremental on the Q: drive completes, the 5.2.2.5 client now
refers to it as the '\*' filespace.

04/03/2004 02:02:52 Normal File-->     2,167,078,912
\\sgtpepper\q$\MSSQL7\jdedata\jde_PRODUCTIONlog_new.ldf [Sent]
04/03/2004 02:02:52 Successful incremental backup of '\\sgtpepper\q$\*'

 The filespace information on the TSM server shows \\sgtpepper\q$ and
hasn't
gotten updated. The drive is mapped as part of a preschedulecmd script
that
issues the following command:

"C:\Program Files\SnapDrive\sdcli" snap mount -k f -s
sqlsnap__sgtpepper__recent -d q

Hi Richard,

I don't think include/exclude would really interfere with this. I am
focusing on the messages

04/07/2004 02:07:28 Successful incremental backup of '\\getback\q$\*'
04/08/2004 07:47:50 Successful incremental backup of '\\gwise99\gwise\*'

These indicate that somewhere along the line the file specification is
being made with the '\*' at the end of the file system name. Even if he
excluded every file in those file systems, a successful incremental backup
of \\getback\q$ should cause the file space last backup date to be
updated. However, since an incremental backup of \\getback\q$\* is not
considered a full incremental backup (because of the '\*' qualifier), it
doesn't get updated.

My money (all two cents of it!) says that somewhere there is a DOMAIN
statement or other file specification like this:

   \\getback\q$\*

as opposed to

   \\getback\q$

Regards,

Andy

Ted - Does 'dsmc q inclexcl' show any "interference" with that intention?
