isi_vol_copy do i need the session open during the whole migration

Jump to solution

we are migrating from a Netapp to Isilon using Isi_Vol_copy, so we are using a laptop and it has to be shut down everyday after work, do I need the putty session to be open during the whole migration?

Also how can I generate and read the log file.

as in any unix environment you can put commands in the background by using "&" as character after the command

isi_vol_copy <source> <Destination> <options> &

this should enable you to close the putty and shut down the Laptop.

Regarding the logfile i recommend to take a look into /var/log/isi_vol_copy.log

less /var/log/isi_vol_copy.log

hi, thanks for the reply, so in this case, how would I know the copy status or if it is done when I want to check

Also, do I just copy the Log file from /var/log  using CP -r  command and read it?

if you start a process with the & operator you get the process-id. you can query this id or you can grep the process
using ps and grep

ps -aux | grep "isi_vol_copy" | grep -v "grep"


Regarding the logfile:

you can read it with

cat

less

more

follow the changes of the logfile using

tail -f /var/log/isi_vol_copy

or copy it anywhere you want and process it with other Tools.

just don't use tools like vi pls...

screen -R volcopy isi_vol_copy <source> <Destination> <options>


To exit the screen, hit CTRL-A, then D


To resume the screen, enter "screen -r volcopy"


(volcopy is the name you assign to the Screen session)
