BSAQueryObject

Query about the XBSA object copies.

SYNOPSIS

#include <xbsa.h>

int BSAQueryObject(BSA_Handle bsaHandle, BSA_QueryDescriptor *queryDescriptorPtr,

BSA_ObjectDescriptor *objectDescriptorPtr)

DESCRIPTION

The BSAQueryObject() call initiates a request for information on NetBackup XBSA object copies from the NetBackup XBSA interface. The results of the query are determined by the search conditions specified in the query descriptor. The XBSA object descriptor for the first XBSA object satisfying the query search conditions is returned in the BSA_ObjectDescriptor (referenced by the objectDescriptorPtr parameter). The application can obtain the other XBSA object descriptors found by the query by successive calls to BSAGetNextQueryObject().

PARAMETERS

BSA_Handle bsaHandle (I)

This parameter is the handle that associates this call with a previous BSAInit() call.

BSA_QueryDescriptor *queryDescriptorPtr (I)

This parameter is a pointer to a structure that contains the search conditions for the query.

BSA_ObjectDescriptor *objectDescriptorPtr (O)

This parameter is a pointer to a structure that is used to return the XBSA object descriptor for the first XBSA object that satisfies the search condition specified in the query.

EXTENDED DESCRIPTION

This function may only be used as part of a retrieval transaction.

A limited wildcard capability is available as follows:

Data Type

Wildcard options

string

"*" matches 0 or more characters "?" matches exactly one character "\*" matches a literal "*" "\?" matches a literal "?" "\\" matches a literal "\"

String matching is performed without any interpretation of the string contents. There is no implied knowledge of the structure of the string contents.

time

Zero value = any time

enumerations

ANY value matches any value

BSA_ObjectOwner

Defaults to value specified at session initialization

The following examples illustrate wildcard string matching:

BSA_ObjectName.pathName = /server/*

Matches all NetBackup XBSA objects for this server

BSA_ObjectName.pathName = /server/rootdbs/*

Matches all levels of rootdbs

BSA_ObjectName.pathName = /server/????

Matches all levels whose name is exactly four characters long

RETURN VALUE

The following return codes are returned by this function:

BSA_RC_ABORT_SYSTEM_ERROR

System detected error, operation aborted.

BSA_RC_ACCESS_FAILURE

Access to the requested NetBackup XBSA object descriptor is not permitted.

BSA_RC_INVALID_CALL_SEQUENCE

The sequence of API calls is incorrect.

BSA_RC_INVALID_HANDLE

The handle used to associate this call with a previous BSAInit() call is invalid.

BSA_RC_INVALID_QUERYDESCRIPTOR

The BSA_QueryDescriptor was invalid.

BSA_RC_NO_MATCH

No NetBackup XBSA objects matched the given query.

BSA_RC_NULL_ARGUMENT

A NULL pointer was encountered in one of the arguments.

BSA_RC_SUCCESS

The function succeeded.
