NAME nsrhanara – NetWorker Module for SAP (NMSAP) scheduled backup configuration wizard remote agent for SAP HANA

SYNOPSIS nsrhanara [ – i ] [ – u ]

DESCRIPTION The nsrhanara agent is part of the NMSAP scheduled backup configuration wizard.

The primary function of the nsrhanara command is to perform operations on behalf of the wizard on the local or remote SAP HANA host that contains NMSAP. Those operations include, but are not limited to, the database queries to the SAP HANA server.

The secondary function is to register ( – i ) or unregister ( – u ) the wizard as a plug-in on the client host during installation.

The nsrhanara command is invoked only by:

(1) The NetWorker Management Console (NMC) during the creation or modification of a scheduled backup configuration for SAP HANA.

Maintenance Commands NSRSAPPROBE ( 1m )

NAME nsrsapprobe – The NMSAP probe program for probe-based backups

SYNOPSIS nsrsapprobe -s server -c client -g group [ -t state ] [ -o cmd

_ options > :

LOG

_

THRESHOLD= < Threshold number >

NSR

_

_

DIR= < Debug Directory >

ORACLE

_

SERVICE= < Oracle Net service name >

DESCRIPTION The nsrsapprobe program is used to automatically start an NMSAP backup when a specified number or size of logs have been generated since the previous probe-based backup. The nsrsapprobe command should not be manually invoked, but, it should be executed as part of a probe-based savegrp.

When nsrsapprobe is first invoked, it returns success and triggers probe-based savegrp backup. Once the backup has successfully completed, the transaction log state is recorded in the State field of the corresponding NSR Probe resource on the NetWorker server. When nsrsapprobe is subsequently invoked, a comparison is made to determine whether the delta between the current number or the current size of the transaction logs and the value recorded in the State field is greater than or equal to < Threshold number > in which case the backup would proceed.

Use of the nsrsapprobe program requires the NetWorker server versions to be 7.5 or later.

OPTIONS -c Specifies the NetWorker client name.

-g Specifies the NetWorker group name.

-o Specifies the command options set in the NSR Probe resource.

-s Specifies the NetWorker server name.

-t Specifies the state of the NSR Probe resource.

EXAMPLES The following is an example of nsrsapprobe and arguments that a probe-based savegrp can call: nsrsapprobe -s example.server.com -c example.client.com -g probegroup -o
