William Thanks again,  Makes perfect sense and I definitely want piece
of mind knowing that the services
are started right after the backup ends I will use this as soon as this
works one time.  Right now I am getting
the following errors, Apparently  it doesn't  like my entry's in the
dsm.opt file.

I tried both the following entries with no luck. Also, I am unable to
start the client acceptor
getting the following service could not be started on Local Computer.

PRESCHEDULEDCMD Stopstuff.cmd
POSTSCHEDULEDCMD Startstuff.cmd

and

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

I am getting Error in options file

ANS1036S Invalid option 'PRESCHEDULEDCMD' found in options file
'C:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\baclient\dsm.opt'
ANS1038S Invalid option specified
ANS1036S Invalid option 'PRESCHEDULEDCMD' found in options file 'dsm.opt'

When the script exits the condition code (ERRORLEVEL) of the last command 
executed is used as the completion code for the script. In
your example, if the first net stop/start fails and the 2nd one works....then 
the script will show zero completion...but it really
half-failed. You could always make this script complete successfully just by 
putting any command as the last command that will
always give an ERRORLEVEL of 0. Like ECHO. Then no matter what the rest of the 
script does, it will always show as completed
successfully.

The PRESCHEDULECMD is such that if the command returns with a non-zero 
condition code, TSM client does not perform the backup.

I think on the POSTSCHEDULECMD you need to check the condition code of the NET 
START's to alert you if they fail to start. You could
then be pro-active and get the services going before the users discover it for 
you.

This is a good place to start if you need to get it going now, but I really 
think you should look at condition code checking and
alerting on errors in the long run.

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"

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

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

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!
