Duplicating a volume manually
If you use the following instructions to duplicate a volume manually, the tape appears on the Picking List for Vault report when it expires. It is recalled from the off-site vault as part of your normal operations.
To duplicate a volume manually
- Duplicate the volume manually by using the bpduplicate command. When duplicating the volume, specify the same off-site volume pool that is used for the volume already vaulted.
- Assign the vault vendor's slot number for the volume by using the vltoffsitemedia command. The slot number is assigned in the vltslot field.
Do not assign a value to the vltreturn field. If you assign a value, the volume never appears on the Picking List for Vault report.
- Move the volume into the off-site volume group by using the vmchange command. Use the same off-site volume group as the first vaulted copy.
If the volume is in the same off-site volume group and the same off-site volume pool that is used by the regularly scheduled Vault profile, this volume appears on the Picking List for Vault report when the first vaulted copy expires (if you did not assign a value to the vltreturn field).
- Eject the volume.
- Edit the file of the Picking List for Robot report to insert this volume into the list. Then print the report and give it to the vault vendor.
See the NetBackup Commands Reference Guide for information about the bpduplicate and vltoffsitemedia commands.
