Looking for some man pages.

Can anyone supply me with the man pages for:
omnidatalist
omnibarlist
omnisap.exe
I prefer the source man pages in nroff format.

A clue about the software bundles which supply these man pages is fine as well.

OS: HP-UX

TIA

I'm not seeing those commands on my HPUX DP cell manager or any of the clients.

But for other omni commands, you should select when installing client a User Interface checkbox in DP gui, which will install omni utilities in /opt/omni/bin and will put man pages in /opt/omni/lib/man

After putting /opt/omni/lib/man in MANPATH, man omni<whatever> should work fine.

Regards.

Thanks for your reply Peasant.

The "omnisap.exe" utility or plugin is present on my system. "omnidatalist" and "omnibarlist" are config files, backup specification files. If you define a backup from your gui, these fiiles are generated and stored as ascii files on your disk.

As so often, the gui doesn't allow you to specify all possible options. To use DataProtector to its full extent you can accomplish more by creating the backup specifications manually e.g. using "vi".

The man pages for "omnidatalist" and "omnibarlist" ate supposed to specify the full syntax for these files.

I know the location of the man pages, however these man pages are not present.

I took the full software bundle of DP apart (unpacked all archives), however cannot find those man pages anywhere. Neither in parts for different OS versions like Solaris.

However, in e.g the man page of "omnib" there is a refence to these man pages.

I suspect they were only present in older version of the software, or they are part of an extra buncle I'm not aware of.

Similar applies for the man page of "omnisap.exe". The binary itself doesn't have a help option, neither does using the "strings" command on the binary provide me any info.

The backup environment I'm dealing with was setup by someone else years ago. The backup specification files show options which cannot be specified in the gui.

Most are clear to me, but there are few of which I would like to know more specifics. Actually I would like to know all possible options.

Anyway, thanks again for your reply.

Thanks for your reply as well ctsgnb.

I went thru all of the guides, especially those for the plugins. However none of these manuals provide the necessary information. At best they mention the existance of the binary and the existance of backup definition files.

No detailed syntax is available.

I managed to find a man page for "omnidatalist" in the google cache. But besides that no info at all.

You can find additionnal guides here:

SAP plugin

Command line reference

DataProtector Documentation

Just pick up those that contain what you look for.

Thanks again for your reply ctsgnb, but I went thru all these manuals. As I mentioned before, these manuals mention at best the existance of the plugin or backup definition files.

No full syntax is provided.

Ofcourse I tried the man command. Specifying the section only has an added value if for a specific entry pages exist in different sections. If man cannot find an entry it's useless to add the section.

I also ran e.g. "find / -name omnibarlist\*"

No results.

As I expressed earlier, I suspect these man pages only have been available in older version of DP, or there exists a bundle somewhere which I dont know of.

Perhaps you should look into omnicreatedl command for specific creation of backup specification using command line.
http://bizsupport.austin.hp.com/bc/d.../c01631222.pdf

You can check out your specification via omnirpt command.
Code:
omnirpt -report dl_info -datalist YourSpec

Unfortunatly, i have never directly edited the backup specification in such manner your mentioned so cannot help much.

Regards
Peasant.
