Floppy drive comes up ...... sometimes

Jump to solution

On occasion we get a few of these.  Not all the time...

Looks like Avamar doesn't like the floppy drive.

Would excluding help here or is there another way?

Thanks...

Joe,

If you are using 7.1 client you could give it a try to the following flag in avtar.cmd:

--no-query-vols=A:

If you are running Avamar 7.0 client, please contact support to install a hotfix since same flag is not included in 7.0 client by default.

hi jdespres,

If this is a physical machine then yes, excluding drive A:\ would be the solution. If the problem would still occur (even with A:\ being excluded in dataset), there is a suggestion to create or modify (if existing) avtar.cmd file, so it will include flags:

--exclude=A:\

--no-query-vols=A:\

In case of virtual machine I think the best option is simply not to include floppy disk, when creating VMs.

Best Regards,

Kris

Joe,

Sure, any flag can be injected in dataset using the right syntax:

 

You can edit the dataset:

 

Edit Dataset - Options Tab - Click More

 

Select  the right plugin from drop down

 

Enter Attribute Section: [avtar]no-query-vols

Enter Attribute Value: A:

 

Click plus button..

Click ok.

Keep in mind that "[avtar]" string could be replaced for any other plugin binary where you want to apply some flag.

For example: [avsql]sqltimeoutsecs=800
