just to let you know that I released a new tool called brick which might make handling of supports calls much more easier. In addition you get a clear documentation for your environment (like nickel or chg2html).
If you like, check it out at http://www.data-protector.org/wordpress/brick/

Brick has to be executed on the CM? So I'm guessing there's no joy for Linux and HP-UX CMs?
Was this information helpful? If so, please click the groovy little star over in the left margin. Thanks!

yes the tool has to be executed on the Windows CM, as some commands done require to be run on CM. As described in roadmap the script of course will be ported to Linux and Unix once all stuff is included / finished in Windows version. I expect to have the port ready in Q1 2013.

Thanks for the info.
Plesae let me knoe is it possilbe to collect backup usage and data change rate for configured policys ?

Just tried BRICK on my DP environment - works very well!
It's going to make logging support calls a lot easier :)

thanks for using the tool.
Please mark you calendar, in May I'll release the new version, new features, bugfixes and new GUI.

Schickes Tool, aber hat mir leider die IDB gefreezt, wodurch Ich den Cellmanager(Cluster) neustarten musste.
Nice Tool, but badly it freezed my IDB, so i had to restart the Cellmanager.

the behaviour you are describe is very unusual. At the end only Data Protector commands are executed to get all the information. So, it might be worth to get a closer look at your environment to understand what happened here.

please watch for new version to be released on 2013/07/01 - it will include the support for Data Protector 8.00.
PS: right after that the portion to Linux starts!

today I released version 1.00 of BRICK, including the support for Data Protector 8.00. I just start the project "Scandium", which is the port to Linux.

Couple of questions:
1. How does BRICK run in a MOM environment? Does it pull from all CMs in a MOM or do the reports still need to be run on each CM? (all Windows CMs)
2. Does BRICK handle ECC decently or isn't that a concern?
07-02-2013 07:25 AM
in a MoM environment you would need to execute BRICK cell server by cell server. If centralized media management is used, it might be the case that for each cell server you get the information regarding devices and media.
Regarding encryption, it should'nt be a concern, as I used the standard commands in the tool, so whatever you get displayed when executing a command, the same will be displayed within BRICK.
Thanks and best regards
PS: If you wish a different behaviour for MoM I could imagine to collect all the data from the cells starting from the MoM server. But as this means major changes to the code I'd like to see some additional comments from community requiring this feature.

Not sure how many MOM comments you'll get... based on what I've heard from a couple different DP support types MOM is only used by about 10% of the DP installs.
And with the new DB in v8, I find myself wondering how long the whole MOM concept is going to be supported at all.
07-04-2013 11:38 PM
the 10 % is what I heard too. Let me check once I released the Linux version if can make it possible to discover MoM's too.

In most environments we need run the -full option of the BRICK because this option generate the reports of last seven days.
If this environment has more than 75 clients, the DP DLC take much time to run. Is there any way to skip the DLC ?
