Veritas

Hey all,

I've noticed a heap of UNIX jobs like Veritas experience. Just wondering if anyone knows of any softwrae very much alike for free which would be good for learning with?

Or if there is a trail like version out there for downloading?

Cheers

Thx in advance

Veritas software is embedded in Windows XP for backups FWIW. You can get a trial version of Veritas. Veritas primarily used for hot/or not backups of large datasets and filesystems.

We got a new version 9.1 a while back and had a load of problems, chiefly that it took MUCH longer to restore disks than with the previous version we had. The sysadmins eventually got things under control.

The previous post focused on Veritas backup products, but don't forget Veritas has many other products as well. I am willing to beat most sites are looking for Netbackup, BackupExec, or Veritas Filesystem/Foundation Suite. Unfortunately I don't think you will be able to find a free product that will give you the same experience as working with Veritas products. The principles may be the same but the commands and terminology will be different.

In my work, we use Veritas Volume Manager, which is probably by far the most widely used Veritas product in the Unix world.

VxVM is fairly easy to understand once you've worked with it (and if you've used other products like DiskSuite, etc).

All of the commands (which have no consistency - help is sometimes invoked with -h, -H or the keyword "help" itself, you get the idea Smilie), can normally be executed by the menu-driven wrapper vxdiskadm, although you've got the entire command set at your disposal for doing the real dirty work.

And to answer the original question, you can download trial veritas products from http://www.veritas.com/softwaredownl...alwareHome.jsp. You can get Veritas Foundation Suite for SUSE, for example.

Have a play with some of the LVM and software RAID stuff under Linux too - it's totally different but conceptually alike.

Cheers
