NetBackup runs the shared_drive_notify.cmd script (on Windows) and the shared_drive_notify script (on UNIX) when a shared drive is reserved or released.
The name of the current scan host.
The operation, which is one of the following:
Specifies that the host on which the script is executed needs SCSI access to the drive until it's released.
Informational only. Specifies that the host that reserved the drive needs SCSI access.
Specifies that only the scan host needs SCSI access to the drive.
Specifies that the host that executes the script has become the scan host. A host should not become a scan host while the drive is RESERVED.
The scan host may change between a RESERVED operation and a RELEASED operation.
The scripts are located in the following directories:
On Windows: Install_path\Volmgr\bin\shared_drive_notify.cmd
On UNIX: /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/shared_drive_notify
The script must be executable by the root user.
The script exits with status 0 upon successful completion.
