Thanks to all who responded I need and appreciate all of your help. I am
going
to try some if not all of your suggestions. Since I am new at this  type
of  scripting
I am going to Start with the simplist form first.  Here are the two
scripts that I placed  in the
C: \program files\tivoli tsm\baclient\

REM =====================
REM =====================
REM Tivoli storage manger 5.3.4
REM  COMMAND TO START SERVICES
REM ========================
@ECHO OFF

set tsm_dir=c:\Progra~1\TivoliTSM\BaClient
C:
cd %tsm_dir%

net start "Update Services"
net start "World Wide Web Publishing Service"


REM===============================
REMREM
REM  COMMAND TO STOP SERVICES
REM============================
@ECHO OFF


set tsm_dir=C:\Program files\tivoli\TSM\Baclient
C:
Cd %tsm_dir%

net stop "Update Services"
net stop "World Wide Web Publishing Service"

The dsm.opt file looks like this


PRESCHEDULEDCMD "c:\program files\tivoli\tsm\baclient\Stopstuff.bat"
POSTSCHEDULEDCMD "c:\program files\tivoli\tsm\baclient\Startstuff.bat"

William,  I understand your logic and condition code checking and I read
the Technote that
Andrew pointed out. From what I have been told if the commands don't
work the backup
will just fail with a condition code.  A couple of our backups are setup
with presched
commands with ASR. If it does fail I will try your Condition Code Script.

I am going to implement this for tonights backup hopefully it will
work. If anyone cares
to add anything or see any possible errors feel free to let me know.

Again Thank you all very much.

Tim

Maybe being an ex-programmer, but you have no condition code checking to make 
sure that the NET STOP/START commands completed
successfully. If you NET STOP's don't work, do you still want to run the 
backup? Now if the last NET STOP command fails, then the
preschedulecmd will return with a non-zero completion code and the backup will 
not run. Maybe something like this:

REM StartStuff.cmd

Set LASTCC=0
Set MAXCC=0
Set LOG_FILE=c:\some\path\StartStuff.log
Echo Script start at %date% %time% > %LOG_FILE%

Echo Net stop "Update Services" >> %LOG_FILE%
Net stop "Update Services" >> %LOG_FILE%
Set LASTCC=%ERRORLEVEL%
If %LASTCC% EQU 0 goto stop2
Set MAXCC=%LASTCC%
Echo Stop of the Update Services service failed with RC=%LASTCC% >> %LOG_FILE%
Goto endit

:stop2
Echo Net stop "World Wide Web Publishing Service" >> %LOG_FILE%
Net stop "World Wide Web Publishing Service" >> %LOG_FILE%
Set LASTCC=%ERRORLEVEL%
If %LASTCC% EQU 0 goto endit
Set MAXCC=%LASTCC%
Echo Stop of the World Wide Web Publishing Service failed with RC=%LASTCC% >> 
%LOG_FILE%
Echo Net start "Update Services" >> %LOG_FILE%
Net start "Update Services" >> %LOG_FILE%
:endit
Echo Script completed at %date% %time% with RC=%MAXCC% >> %LOG_FILE%
Exit %MAXCC%


Now the script will complete with an appropriate return code and give you all 
the messages in case you need to try and figure out
why it failed.

In the dsm.opt file add:
PRESCHEDULECMD "c:\program files\tivoli\tsm\baclient\StopStuff.bat"
POSTSCHEDULECMD "c:\program files\tivoli\tsm\baclient\StartStuff.bat"
Or
PRESCHEDULECMD c:\progra~1\tivoli\tsm\baclient\StopStuff.bat
POSTSCHEDULECMD c:\progra~1\tivoli\tsm\baclient\StartStuff.bat



In the "c:\program files\tivoli\tsm\baclient" directory add:

StartStuff.bat
        Net start "Update Services"
        Net start "World Wide Web Publishing Service"

StopStuff.bat
        Net stop "Update Services"
        Net stop "World Wide Web Publishing Service"

Run the backup normally.  The batch has 5 minutes to complete. (I think)

Test both batch files from the command line to make sure there are not any 
dependencies.

I know of no simpler way to stop and start services for a backup.

Tim,

It's defined just like your incremental sched, just set action=command (default is 
incremental), then objects=<your script name>

a q sched <sched name> f=d would show:

Policy Domain Name: SPAIX
                Schedule Name: STATBKTRACK-FULL
                  Description: The weekly full backup of selected tables on
                                STATDBMS using SQL-BACKTRACK
                       Action: Command
                      Options:
                      Objects: /home/sybase/dump/dbbkup.s

Thanks Lawerence,

I  wasn't aware of that I had planned on  putting the  following commands in 
the dsm.opt file. I have never defined a script
schedule before I am going to have to figure out the correct syntax for this 
type of script.
feel free to give example

where it is in the dsm.opt shouldn't matter, but since you want to

multiple processes and can only use one -preschedulecmd="my script""
you might want to think about defining a schedule that executes a
script to stop your processes, does the incremental, then restarts
them.

Hello,

I need to stop two services before the incremental backup runs then
restart the services once the backup completes. I know about the
prescheduled and postscheduled commands but have never used them. Where
do I insert the commands in dsm.opt file for this to excute
successfully? The following are the two services that need to be
stopped then restarted once backup completes can someone tell me where
I


would


put in the dsm.opt file?
The dsm.opt file is below also.


1)Update Services
2) World Wide Web Publishing Service



Thanks in advance for any help!
