  • 5. Symantec Backup Exec -Command Line Applet The Backup Exec Command Line Applet is a convenient way to access some of the most useful features of Backup Exec from a command prompt. The Command Line Applet allows management of only one media server at a time, but allows for remote management of media servers within an enterprise. However, if the Central Admin Server Option (CASO) is installed, you can administer all servers managed by the central administration server. Backup Exec must be installed and running on a media server in order for the Command Line Applet to target it, but the Command Line Applet does not have to be run from a media server. The Command Line Applet uses functional command switches typed in a command prompt window to perform most Backup Exec functions and utilities. Note Backup Exec Command Line Applet is only backwards compatible for a previous release and dot releases of the same version of Backup Exec.Updating scripts for use with this release This release of the Backup Exec Command Line Applet provides improved output from command switches and includes support for new features and capabilities in Backup Exec. Symantec strongly recommends that you use the latest release of the Command Line Applet. You may need to update existing job scripts to take advantage of the improved command switch output. While you update and test your job scripts with this release of Backup Exec Command Line Applet, you can continue to use the previous version of the Command Line Applet. 5
  • 6. Command Line Applet requirementsCommand Line Applet requirements The Backup Exec Command Line Applet works with a local or remote Backup Exec server installation. Minimum system requirements include: Command Line Applet requirements Operating System You can find a list of compatible operating systems, platforms, and applications at the following URL: http://entsupport.symantec.com/umi/V-269-1 Processor Pentium system Memory Required 16 MB RAM Disk Space A minimum of 1 MB of hard disk space after Microsoft Windows is installed Other Hardware DVD-ROMUsing the Command Line Applet The Backup Exec Command Line Applet is installed with Backup Exec. After installation, to run the applet on another computer, copy bemcmd.exe to a computer that meets the minimum requirements and is running Windows RPC services. If you copy bemcmd.exe to another computer, the following files must exist on that computer: ■ beclass.dll ■ becluster.dll ■ BECrypto.dll ■ besocket.dll ■ bestdutl.dll ■ libvxsigcomp2.dll ■ msvcp71.dll ■ msvcr71.dll ■ serdll.dll ■ vxcrypto.dll6 Symantec Backup Exec Command Line Applet
  • 7. Using command line switches If these files do not already exist, copy them to the computer along with bemcmd.exe. To use the Command Line Applet, type bemcmd followed by a series of command switches in a command prompt window. The Command Line Applet will attempt to complete the requested task, and then return a value to the command prompt indicating success or failure. Backup Exec functions and utilities that you can run using the Command Line Applet include: ■ Run or cancel a previously created jobs. ■ Create and run jobs for local or remote file selections, including databases on Microsoft Exchange, SQL, Lotus Domino, Oracle, UNIX, and SharePoint installations. ■ Create selection lists. ■ Create protection policies that include job templates and rules. ■ Create, run, and monitor utility jobs. Note This release of the Command Line Applet does not support submission of verify or rewind jobs. ■ Set default options for all jobs. ■ Obtain job status and the number of scheduled, active, and completed jobs. ■ Create media sets and drive pools. ■ Perform drive utilities and get information about the status of drives. ■ Start and stop Backup Exec system services. ■ Retrieve information on and respond to job alerts. ■ Determine if the media server is available on the network. ■ View and print Backup Exec reports. Note The Command Line Applet can target clustered media servers. The only limitation is that the Command Line Applet can target a device pool, but not a specific device in that device pool.Using command line switches To use the Command Line Applet on your computer, type the appropriate command line switch and any additional information required. For example, to run a previously created backup job named Operations Weekly, type the following at the command prompt: 7
  • 8. Using command line switches bemcmd -o1 -j"Operations Weekly" In this example, -o1 is the operation to submit the backup job. The command line switch -j specifies the name of the backup job. Because the job name contains spaces, quotation marks are required around the job name. The job “Operations Weekly” was previously created through the Backup Exec administration console. By default, the backup will be done on the computer where the Command Line applet is executed. To run this same job on a remote computer named Genesis, type the following at the command prompt: bemcmd -cGenesis -o1 -j"Operations Weekly" The command line switch -c specifies the name of the media server where the job is to be run. When connecting to a remote server, if you are required to provide a user name and password, type the following at the command prompt, substituting the text appearing in italics with the correct names: bemcmd -cGenesis -nuser_name -ppassword -o1 -j"Operations Weekly" If the value contains a space or a colon, enclose the value with quotation marks. If the switch contains more than one letter a colon must appear immediately after the switch or the switch itself must be enclosed in quotation marks. Switches that consist of only a single character do no require a colon after the switch. In each of the previous examples, a -1 is returned if the job fails. You can also track the status of the job submission by including the Verbose Output command line switch -v. Substitute the text that appears in italics next to the command, such as job name, with a value, such as the correct job name. For commands using Job IDs, this version of Backup Exec uses a globally unique identifier (GUID) in a 16-byte hex string format for each job. Note Command line switches appearing in BOLD are required.8 Symantec Backup Exec Command Line Applet
  • 9. Using command line switchesSwitches used with all operations The following command line switches can be used with all operations. Command line switches for all operations Item Description -?

You must specify the logfile name where the output is to be written. -nuser name Specifies the user name credential for logging on to a remote Backup Exec server. If a user name is not specified, the current credential is used. -ppassword Specifies the password credential for logging on to a remote Backup Exec server. If a password is not specified, the current password credential is used. -tBackup Exec server Specifies the type of OS the server is running. The default is type Windows. To specify a NetWare server, type -tNW. To specify a Windows server, type -tNT. -v Displays information detailing what has occurred while running the Command Line Applet and the specified option. This command is useful when tracing the sequence of events using the command line applet. -w Waits for the job to complete before exiting the program. The commands with switch -w return a 1 if successful or -1 on failure. 9
  • 10. Using command line switches Command line switches for all operations (continued) Item Description --deprecation Displays commands that are deprecated in Backup Exec. Returns a 1 if the command succeeds, a -1 if the command fails, or a 0 if the command partially succeeds. --category Displays category numbers that you append to the -? switch. Backup job operations and switches You can run a previously created job or submit a new backup job using the commands presented in the following table. You can also create a backup job script file that the Command Line Applet can use instead of command line switches. Backup job commands Operation Additional Function Description Switches -o1 Run backup job Runs a backup job that has been previously defined. Returns a job instance ID. Also returns a 1 if the command succeeds or a -1 if the command fails. -jjob name or Required. Specifies the name or the job ID of -ijob ID the previously defined job that Backup Exec should run. Note If there are jobs with the same name, only one of the jobs will run. To ensure that the correct job runs, you should use the job ID instead of the job name to specify which job will run. -pr:priority Specifies the priority for the job. Priority options include: ◆ Highest ◆ High ◆ Medium ◆ Low ◆ Lowest If this switch is absent, the priority will be set as Medium.10 Symantec Backup Exec Command Line Applet

Selections that end with a backslash indicate the selection is a directory. Selections that do not end with a backslash indicate the selection is a file. To back up System State, type "server nameSystem?State*.*" after -s. Note To back up Shadow Copy Components on a Windows 2003 computer, type "server nameShadow?Copy ?Components*.*" after -s. By default, subdirectories will be recursed; to skip subdirectories during backup, the characters /n should appear before the comma separating the entries, and the last quotation mark. Include a space between the list of files and the /n entry. For example, "c:winnt*.* /n". If Unix files are included in the selections, the characters /u should appear before the comma separating the entries, and the last quotation mark. If the sudirectories are skipped during backup, the /n characters must precede the /u characters. If the /n characters are in the entry, include a space between the list of files and the /n entry. For example, "c:winnt*.* /n/u". The order in which resource selections are specified is the order in which the resources will be backed up. Note the following about the order in which selections can be backed up: 13

  • 92. Using command line switches Setting default options The command line switch -o300 allows you to set default options to be used for Backup Exec operations. After setting the default options, you can use the -o301 switch to retrieve the value of the default options set. To retrieve the value using the -o301 operation, specify the option name or file name after the command. If you do not specify an option name or file name, all the default options set will be retrieved. To retrieve a list of available default options and the values, use the -o301 operation with the -f switch. The default options can be set through a series of -do parameters and the use of a -dv parameter followed by the default value. For example, to set the job priority default to high using the -do parameter, enter: -o300 -do:DO_JOB_PRIORITY -dv:3 You can also set the default options through the use of the -f parameter followed by the name of a file. Use a text editor, such as Notepad, to create a file that contains all the default options. Each entry must be typed on separate line and include the name of the parameter typed in capital letters and then followed by an equal (=) or a colon (:) sign. The value for the entry must follow the equal sign and contain no quotes unless they are part of the value itself. For example, to set the job priority default to high and set the default backup to full using the -f parameter, create a text file that contains the following parameters: DO_JOB_PRIORITY=3 DO_BACKUP_TYPE=0 After you complete the file, enter: -o300 -f:filename92 Symantec Backup Exec Command Line Applet

The job script file can contain all of the switches you would normally specify on the command line when using the Command Line Applet as well as additional switches that you set when creating the job script file. The job script file can also be used in conjunction with some of the switches. Sample script files are included in the UTILS directory on the installation DVD. To activate an entry in this sample file, delete the forward slashes (//) at the beginning of the line. The following are the sample script files included: ■ Backup jobs - bjscript.txt ■ Restore jobs - rjscript.txt ■ Catalog jobs - catalogscript.txt ■ Discovery resource jobs - discoveryscript.txt ■ Duplicate backup jobs - djscript.txt ■ Test run jobs - testrunscript.txt ■ Copy job - cjscript.txt Creating a backup job script file Use a text editor, such as Notepad, to create a backup job script file that contains the following sections, and entries for each section: ■ [General] ■ [Backup_Options] ■ [Media_Options] ■ [Miscellaneous] ■ [Schedule] ■ [Machine] ■ [Selections] ■ [Media_Server] Each entry included for the various sections must be typed in capital letters and be immediately followed by an equal (=) sign. The value for the entry must immediately follow the equal sign and contain no spaces or quotes unless they are part of the value itself. For example, to specify in the script that the job name is Workstation Backups and the job type is backup, the script file for the [General] section would appear as: 127

  • 159. Using job script filesPossible backup job script file entries (continued)Section Entry Description APATHx=String Specify which files or directories are backed up and aliased when running an alias backup. The order in which resource selections are specified is the order in which the resources will be backed up. Change x to a unique number for each device aliasing backup selection. An alias backup allows you to specify a share to back up, and then specify another share from which the backup will appear to have originated. This type of backup is useful when the location of the data to be backed up is temporary. For example, a share may be cloned and placed on another device while it is backed up in order to off-load traffic from a busy device. If a temporary share is backed up, the restore path for the share may not exist if a restore becomes necessary. Instead, you can specify an alias to a location where you want the share to appear to have been backed up from. For example: APATH1=MachineAC$*.* AINCLUDE1=1 ASUBDIRS1=1 AALIAS1=MachineBD$ indicates that MachineAC$*.* and all its subdirectories should be backed up and aliased as MachineBD$. Alias jobs support both UNC and local devices. However, both the target and the source must be the same, either both UNC or both local devices. You cannot mix them. Note The schedule option RUN_IMMEDIATE=1 must be included or the alias selection will be ignored. 159

  • 227. Using Policy CommandsUsing job template script files within a policy When creating a policy, you can define or create a job template script files to use with the policy. A job template script file includes the destination, settings, and schedule options. After the policy is created, you can use -o264 with a selection script to quickly create jobs based on the job templates. When using -o264, a policy and selection lists can only be associated with each other once. To use the same policy and selection lists to create another job, run -o265 before using -o264. Sample script files are included in the UTILS directory on the installation DVD. To activate an entry in this sample file, delete the forward slashes (//) at the beginning of the line. Examples of the template script files are given in the following files: ■ Backup template - bjtemplatescript.txt ■ Duplicate backup sets template - djtemplatescript.txt ■ Synthetic full backup job template - sftemplatescript.txt Note The duplicate backup sets template cannot be set to run now. Use a text editor, such as Notepad, to create a job template script file that contains all settings and options for a job, except for the data selections. Each entry included in the job template script file must be typed in capital letters and must be immediately followed by an equal (=) sign. The value for the entry must immediately follow the equal sign and contain no spaces unless they are part of the value itself. For example, to specify in the script that the backup method is working set and that the device name is Backup-to-Disk Folder 1, the script should appear as: BK_METHOD=1 DEVICE_NAME="Backup-to-Disk Folder 1" 227
