Robotic tests on UNIX
If the robot has been configured (that is, added to NBDB), start the robotic test utility by using the robtest command. This action saves time, since robotic and drive device paths are passed to the test utility automatically. The procedure is as follows:
To use the robtest command, do the following (in the order presented):
Execute the following command:
The test utility menu appears.
Select a robot and click.
The test starts.
If the robot is not configured, you cannot use robtest and must execute the command that applies to the robot you test.
/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/acstest -r ACSLS_hostpath
for acstest to work on UNIX and Linux, acssel and acsssi must be running
/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/odltest -r roboticpath
/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tl4test -r roboticpath
/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tl8test -r roboticpath
/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tldtest -r roboticpath
/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tlhtest -r robotic_library_path
/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tlmtest -r DAS_host
/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tshtest -r roboticpath
More information on ACS, TLH, and TLM robotic control is available.
See the NetBackup Device Configuration Guide.
In the previous list of commands, roboticpath is the full path to the device file for the robotic control (SCSI). You can review the section for your platform to find the appropriate value for roboticpath.
An optional parameter specifies the device file path for the drives so that this utility can unload the drives using the SCSI interface.
