How to do a vtl import via Script

I have a list of tapes which I want to import via the command line like :

vtl import <name> barcode XXXXXXLA pool <pool name> element cap



Challenge is how do I put this in a script to run it as a bash on DD, as DD doesn't allows that.


The only work around which I could see is to crack the SE and go to linux but looks little scary to me


Is there any other better way out. The whole motive of doing this is that every week I will schedule this script, it will pick the list of tapes from a text files which is shared on a windows machine and import them in DD.


Regards,

Hi eager2learn,

                        DataDomain does not allow scripting and going down the SE road is not advisable. What I suggest is you can use the vtl Import command and import it to the library. You can use multiple lines of commands simultaneously and it works fine.

I recently moved tapes using the command and tested upto 3500 lines and worked pretty ok.

Hope that helps.
