NAME

nsr_service - NetWorker server resource type ``NSR''  

SYNOPSIS

type: NSR  

DESCRIPTION

Each NetWorker server is described by a resource of type NSR. See nsr_resource(5) for general information on NetWorker resources. To edit the NSR resource use the command:
nsradmin -c "type:NSR"
See nsradmin(8) for information on using the NetWorker administration program.  

ATTRIBUTES

The following attributes are defined for the NSR resource. The information in parentheses describes how the attribute values are accessed. Read-only indicates that the value cannot be changed by an administrator. Read/write means the value can be set and read. Choice list means that any number of values can be chosen from the given list. Static attributes change values rarely. Dynamic attributes have values which can change rapidly. Hidden means it is an attribute of interest only to programs or experts, and these attributes can only be seen when the hidden option is turned on in nsradmin(8). For example, an attribute marked (read-only, static) has a value which is set when the resource is created and never changes, or is changed only by the server.

name                 (read-only, static)
This attribute specifies the hostname of this NetWorker server.

Example name: mars;
version                      (read-only, dynamic)
This is the software version of the NetWorker server daemon,
nsrd(8). This includes a slash and the number of clients currently licensed.
Example: version: NetWorker 4.1 Turbo/110;
comment                      (read/write)
This attribute is provided for the administrator to keep any explanatory
remarks or supplementary information about this NetWorker server.
Example: comment: machine located in room 243;
save totals  (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
Save statistics.
A string containing the total number of save sessions, the number of saves with errors (if any) and the total number of bytes saved (if any). This attribute is updated after each save session completes.
Example: save totals: "37 sessions, 457 MB total";
recover totals       (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
Recovery statistics.
A string containing the total number of recover sessions, the number of recovers with errors (if any) and the total number of bytes recovered (if any). This attribute is updated after each recover session completes.
Example: recover totals: "347 sessions, 48 MB total";
totals since         (read-only, dynamic)
The time statistics collection started.
This is usually the last time the NetWorker server was rebooted.
Example: totals since: "Fri Jun 1 09:35:02 1992";
NSR operation        (read-only, choice list, hidden)
This attribute is currently unused and is provided for backward compatibility.
parallelism          (read/write, static)
This attribute sets the number of concurrent save sessions
that this server will allow. The value can be set by an administrator. Use higher values for better performance on a fast system with a lot of main memory and swap space. Use lower values to avoid overloading a slow system, or systems with little main memory and/or swap space. Warning: due to defects in some versions of UNIX, high values of parallelism may cause the system to lock up.
Example: parallelism: 4;
session statistics   (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
This attribute reports the statistics of each active session.
There are 14 values for each set of statistics, namely, id (session's unique identifier), name (session's name), mode (read, write, browse), pool (current pool), volume (current volume), rate kb (current data transfer rate for save session), amount kb (current amount read/written by session), total kb (total amount to be read by session), amount files (current number of files recovered; to be implemented in a future release), total files (current number of files to recover; to be implemented in a future release), connect time (time session has been connected), num volumes (number of volumes to be used by recover session), used volumes (number of volumes processed by recover session), and completion (running, complete, or continued)
Example: sessions statistics: ;
monitor rap (read/write, hidden)
This attribute allows the administrator to enable logging changes made to the configuration resources into the /nsr/logs/rap.log.
manual saves (read/write, hidden)
This attribute allows the administrator to disable manual backups to the server. Scheduled backups continue to work normally.
public archives (read/write)
This attribute determines whether a user can retrieve archived files that are owned by another user.
volume priority (read/write)
If a NetWorker server has volumes in locally managed jukeboxes and volumes being managed by SmartMedia, this attribute allows the administrator to assign a priority for volume selection when saving data. This attribute determines whether the server has a preference for volumes being managed by SmartMedia, SmartMedia Priority, or whether the server has a preference for volumes in a locally managed jukebox, NearLine Priority. The default value is NearLine Priority.
Example: volume priority: NearLine Priority;
SmartMedia save mount (read/write)
This attribute controls the form of the request made to SmartMedia to mount a volume for saving data. Setting the value of this attributes to volume by characteristics causes NetWorker to request a volume meeting specified criteria, and lets SmartMedia select an appropriate volume from all media which satisfy the criteria specified. When this attribute's value is set to volume by name, NetWorker will request the volume by name and SmartMedia mounts the volume requested. The default value is volume by characteristics.
Example: SmartMedia save mount: volume by characteristics;
license server (read/write, hidden)
The name of the server on which a NetWorker license manager is installed and running. This attribute used to be called "GEMS server". You can set the value to a GEMStation where a GEMS license manager is running or to a machine where a NetWorker license manager is running. Example: license server: jupiter;
update licenses (choice, read-only, dynamic, hidden)
Set to `Yes' if this server should attempt to re-synchronize its externally managed licenses immediately.
message              (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
The last message of any kind logged.
A timestamp is included at the start of the string.
Example: message: "Mon 12:25:51 Tape full, mount volume mars.001 on /dev/nrst1";
message list (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
A list of recent messages, with a timestamp and a string message for
each value.
Example: message: "Mon 12:25:51 Tape full, mount volume mars.001 on /dev/nrst1";
server message       (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
Lists recent, concise general messages about the status of the server.

Example: message: "Tape full, mount volume mars.001 on /dev/nrst1";
sequence number      (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
The sequence number of the corresponding server message.
server message time (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
The time at which the server message was generated.
server message priority (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
The priority of the server message. Currently these are for NetWorker internal use.
server message source (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
This attribute names the NetWorker component, such as a client or device, that generated the message on the server. This can be a client, a device etc.
server message category (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
This attribute is the category the server message belongs to. Currently these are for NetWorker internal use.
session              (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
The value of this attribute is a list of session information strings.
Each string includes the NetWorker client name, type of operation (saving, browsing, or recovering) and information about the save set, including name, number of bytes, and number of files. All sizes and rates are in bytes per second, kilobytes (1024), Megabytes (a thousand Kilobytes), etc.
Example:
session: "venus:/usr saving to mars.001 20MB",
           "mars:/usr/src done saving 24MB";"
session message     (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
Concise session message string of the session attribute described above.

Example:
session: "venus:/usr saving to mars.001",
           "mars:/usr/src done saving";"
session client name (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
The name of each client for which each session is active.
session rate         (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
The rate of data transfer for the active session.
session rate label   (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
Unit of data transfer for the active sessions.
session device name (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
The name of the device on which the session is active.
pending              (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
A list of events pending with the NetWorker event notification system (see
nsr_notification(5)). The first three fields are the time, priority, and event name.
Example: pending: "Fri 14:40:15 alert: media mount of mars.001 suggested on /dev/nrst1";
status               (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
A list of status flags for the NetWorker server.
These flags are only for use by NetWorker server-side programs (for example, savegrp) and list various features enabled in the running server. The format is currently name=boolean (true or false). The listed features and their states can change at any time.
statistics   (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
A list of strings of the form name=number that give a number
of server statistics.
LSSV reg code                (read-write, hidden)
Customer registration code, for "EMC Single Server Version for Oracle".
Jobsdb retention in days             (read/write, static)
Minimum time to keep completed job records in the active jobs database, in days.
After this time, records will be purged out of the active jobs database. NMC server should retrieve job records within this time for long-term monitoring purposes. Make sure that the NMC server does not stay off-line for a period of time longer than the interval specified by this attribute.
Warning: large values of this attribute may cause the active jobs database to grow very large on busy servers, potentially causing performance problems. Adjust with caution.
Jobsdb maximum size          (read/write, static)
Maximum size that the active jobs database is allowed to grow to.
If the database size exceeds this value, the database is purged until the size drops at least 10% below the maximum set by this attribute. Records are selected from oldest to youngest. This value supercedes the retention time. Setting this value too low will cause records to be purged prematurely.
Warning: large values of this attribute may cause the active jobs database to grow very large on busy servers, potentially causing performance problems. Adjust with caution.
types created                (read-only, static)
A list of all the other resource types this NetWorker server can create
and about which clients can query.
Example: types created: NSR device, NSR group;
administrator                (read/write, static)
This is a list of names (or netgroups) of users who are allowed to administer
NetWorker. Users in this list are members of the Administrators user group. This list is inherited from the Users attribute in the Administrators user group resource. Only users with the Change Security Settings privilege can see or modify this attribute. The user "root" on the local host of the server is always an administrator. Entries specifying other administrators are of the form:

user, user@host, user@domain, group@host, group@domain, host/user &netgroup, or user_attribute=value[, ...]

where user is a user name; host is a host name; group is a user group name; domain is a domain name; user_attribute can be user, group, host, nwinstname, nwinstancename, domain, or domaintype (type of the domain, NIS or WINDOMAIN).

The user attributes: nwinstname and nwinstancename are used to indicate a NetWorker instance name. The value that should be entered for either of these attributes is the value in the "name" field in the NSRLA resource for the machine where a matched user is connecting from.

value can be any string delimited by white space. If the value has space in it, then it can be quoted with double quotes. The value may contain wild cards, "*". Entering just a user name allows that user to administer NetWorker from any host (equivalent to user@* or */user or user=user). Netgroup names are always preceded by an "&".

The following example grants NetWorker Administrators membership to, "root" from any host, the user "operator" from the hosts "jupiter" and "mars", the user "admin" from any host, and all <user name, user's hostname, server's domain> in the netgroup "netadmins".
Example: administrator: root, [email protected], mars/operator, admin@*, &netadmins;

The following example grants NetWorker Administrator membership to the user "root" on host "pluto", users in group "Backup Operators" from windows domain "Accounting", and user "joe" in NIS domain "YP.fubar.COM".
Example: administrator: "user=root,host=pluto", "group=\"Backup Operators\", domain=Accounting, domaintype=windomain", "user=joe, domain=YP.fubar.COM, domaintype=NIS";

mm op message        (read/write, dynamic, hidden)
This attribute lists the descriptive message for the most recently
completed media database operation. The NetWorker program (such as nsrmm(8)) that requested the operation clears this attribute as soon as it has read the result. An administrator should never change this attribute manually.
mm operation value (read/write, dynamic, hidden)
This attribute is used by programs such as nsrmm(8) to pass the desired media database operation location or flags to the NetWorker server. The value is automatically cleared when the operation completes. An administrator should never change this attribute manually.

mm operation (read/write, choice list, dynamic,

hidden)
This attribute is used by programs such as nsrmm(8) to pass the appropriate media database operation type to the NetWorker server. The possible choices are: purge volume, purge save set, delete volume, delete save set, mark volume, mark save set, unmark volume, unmark save set, specify volume location, specify volume flags, and specify save set flags. The server serializes such operations and performs the appropriate queries on nsrmmdbd(8). The value is automatically cleared when the operation completes. An administrator should never change this attribute manually.
mm operation id (read/write, dynamic, hidden)
This attribute is used by programs such as nsrmm(8) to pass the desired media database operation identifier to the NetWorker server. The value is automatically cleared when the operation completes. An administrator should never change this attribute manually.

nsrmon(8) to pass information about remote daemon requests to the NetWorker server. The value is automatically cleared when the request completes. An administrator should never change this attribute manually. See nsr_storage_node(5) for a description of storage nodes and remote daemons.
nsrmmd count (read-only, dynamic, hidden)
This attribute is used by programs such as
nsrd(8) to track the number and location of the media daemons, nsrmmd(8).
nsrmmd polling interval  (read/write, hidden)
This attribute specifies the number of minutes between polling events of
a remote nsrmmd(8). nsrd(8) polls a remote nsrmmd(8) at this interval, to determine whether it is running. If it determines from this poll that the daemon is no longer running, it will restart the nsrmmd(8), with a delay set by the `nsrmmd restart interval'; see the nsrmmd restart interval description. See nsr_storage_node(5) for additional details on this attribute and storage nodes.
nsrmmd restart interval      (read/write, hidden)
This attribute specifies the number of minutes between restart attempts
of a remote nsrmmd(8). When nsrd(8) determines that a remote nsrmmd(8) has terminated, it periodically attempts to restart the remote daemon. A value of zero for this attribute means the daemon should be restarted immediately. See nsr_storage_node(5) for additional details on this attribute and storage nodes.
