I am trying to get informations on our VBA backups from mminfo. Is there a way to get the "Target Size"value? In the networker reporting I can see this value but in mminfo it does not seem to be available. Maybe there is another way to get the information from the command line?
Fields I tried up to now are: "backup_size, capacity, fragsize, read, sumsize, total, written" - do not contain the value I look for.
In the mminfo command line reference a field "size" is metioned for VBA backups. When I query the size field, mminfo tells me it does not know it
Any help is appreciated
Info: NetWorker is version 8.1.1.
Solved! Go to Solution.
As Bobby already said, this is the only method - you cannot get a list so far but you have to run the query for each single save set.
I hope EMC will learn that this is absolute inappropriate and will add an appropriate solution asap. I think in the meantime they have received enough RFEs regarding this subject.
Many thanks to Bobby and Bingo - you pointed me in the right direction. I am now using the following query:
mminfo -r"sscreate(24), sscomp(24), ssretent(24), vmname, attrs" -k -xm
I can then parse the required information from the "attrs" content. This way I can (at least) query all savesets with one command.
As bingo said I would also prefer a simpler solution for this.
It looks like the info is already stored in the media index - there is just no normal way to access it.
Would like to see a comment from EMC on that fact.
