The command line instructions in this section can be used to manage NSS pool snapshots on your NetWare server. We recommend that you use the Storage plug-in to Novell iManager 2.7 to manage pool snapshots.
IMPORTANT:NSS pool snapshots are supported on OES 2 Linux and later; however, there are no command line instructions available on Linux. You must use NSSMU to manage NSS pool snapshots on Linux. For general information about pool snapshots, see Section 18.0, Managing NSS Pool Snapshots. For an NSSMU for Linux quick reference on snapshots, see
Snapshots in Table 9-12.
Definitions of the variables used for commands in this section are as follows:
Datapool The unique name of the stored-on pool for the pool snapshot; must be 2 to 16 characters.
Snapname: The unique name of the pool snapshot, which is used as its pool name when the pool snapshot is activated; must be 2 to 16 characters. By default, the name is the pool name with an extension of _Sn where n is a sequential number (1 to 500) that is generated by NSS to indicate how many snapshots have been taken for a given pool. Numbers are reused as snapshots are deleted.
Snappool: The unique name of the original data pool that you are snapping; must be 2 to 16 characters.
Issue the following Media Manager commands at the NetWare server console prompt:
Creates a pool snapshot.
Activates a pool snapshot.
Deactivates a pool snapshot.
Deletes a pool snapshot.
Renames the pool as specified.
Lists the snapshots on the server.
Turns on shredding for the internal volume of the pool where you are storing the specified snapshot.
If this option is enabled:
You can have only one snapshot at a time of its original pool.
After you delete the snapshot, allow enough time for the shredding process before you create a new one.
Turns off shredding for the internal volume of the pool where you are storing the specified snapshot.
If any pool snapshot was created on this pool prior to the NetWare 6.5 SP3 release, shredding is already turned on. Use this command to turn off shredding.
