    If you find this blog interesting, and either have an interest in or work in data protection/backup and recovery environments, you should check out my book, Enterprise Systems Backup and Recovery: A Corporate Insurance Policy. Designed for system administrators and managers alike, it focuses on features, policies, procedures and the human element to ensuring that your company has a suitable and working backup system rather than just a bunch of copies made by unrelated software, hardware and processes.

Basics – Commands you should know Part 2

Posted by Preston on 2009-02-27

Continuing the Commands you should know topic, here’s a single variant of nsrjb that you really, really should know.

Introduced somewhere in the NetWorker 7.3.x, the fast inventory operation available in nsrjb is a boon if you’re in a situation where you’re introducing a lot of barcoded media to a library.

By running the command:

# nsrjb -II

NetWorker will inventory only those volumes that don’t need to be loaded. I.e., just the barcoded volumes that are already in the media database. Thus, this command can be a great time-saver.
