Other operating systems, including virtual environments, are not tested or supported. This is an issue for Solaris zoned environments. Because such device drivers are attached to the system kernel, they must reside in the global zone. Logical libraries are not supported on the Linux operating system.
STK Libraries Attached to ACSLS Server – Prerequisites
In a Linux environment, specific tuning and configuration settings are required to improve ACSLS performance and stability. Documetation patch includes all updates available in the previous patches. There is no need to apply earlier patches. For users wanting updated logical library support on Solaris Refer to the Readme.
Automated Cartridge System Library Software 8.2
This is true for patches 8. Solaris and Linux systems should be equipped with a minimum of 4GB of memory and a minimum of 2GB of swap space. To check swap space, enter one of the following operating system commands:.
To view file system sizes, enter the following command:. Internet Explorer V8 and above and FireFox V39 and above require configuration settings to provide a bit self-signed digital certificate for https. To ensure uninterrupted library service and to avoid unanticipated problems due to resource contention, it is generally recommended that ACSLS run in a standalone environment on a dedicated server.
However, some systems are designed to allow multiple applications to run in co-hosted fashion as though they are completely isolated from one another. The following list details the conditions and limitations associated with the various co-hosting options for an ACSLS application. Solaris zones enable a system administrator to partition a standard, low cost server into four independent Solaris systems, each with its own isolated file system, and its own instance of Solaris.
You can assign network resources to each zone and you can reboot any local non-global zone without affecting applications in other zones on the same platform.
However, the ability to share kernel resources, such as device drivers, across multiple zones is tenuous at best. Ideally, an application that requires kernel drivers would reside in the global zone. However, it is generally bad practice to install an application in the global zone since any irrecoverable error condition with the application could impact all other applications running in the other zones. Any use of Logical Libraries requires a target-mode fibre-channel driver, and any connection to an SL or SL library requires an initiator-mode fibre-channel driver.
A Solaris administrator can partition hardware resources across the system, assigning a specific resource to a specific domain. Network resources on this virtual machine can easily be shared across any of up to guest domains on the server. Any ACSLS application that relies solely on network connectivity to the library and for client applications can be installed in a guest domain on this server.
Documengation is automated library management software. It facilitates automated tape operations for multiple clients, providing services and support to enhance library ease-of-use, performance, and availability. One ACSLS server can control libraries xocumentation into a library complex, individual libraries, or a mix of both.
Refer to the online help for procedures and detailed information for using the GUI. An alternative library console with greatly expanded flexibility and ease of use. For library administration and operation. An alert informs you of conditions that might result in damage to hardware, corruption of data, or corruption of application software.
It always precedes the information to which it pertains. This enables you to define logical subsets of your physical libraries, which can be managed and used by client applications as if they were separate logical libraries.
You can dedicate a portion or all of the volumes and drives in a given physical library documnetation a logical library for use by a specific client application.
The physical libraries, along with any drives and volumes that are not allocated to logical libraries, remain accessible to ACSAPI clients.
Drives and volumes that are allocated to logical libraries are allocated exclusively. There is no support for sharing of either drives or volumes across logical acdls. Logical libraries are only supported on the Solaris operating system.
ACSLS-managed libraries (Windows)
They are not supported in the Linux environment. Each client has exclusive access to its assigned logical library. This allows client software, such as NetBackup, to use the logical libraries as if they were separate physical libraries.
Each logical library can be assigned to only one client, but a given client can access multiple logical libraries if desired. These functions include mountdismountenterejectauditquerydisplayand vary. ACSLS software consists of multiple services that are operated with a simple command, acsss. The acsss macro enables you to start, stop, and check status of the multiple services as a single entity.
Common operations with the acsss macro include:. These respective system utilities handle automatic restart operations after a system boot. Oracle Enterprise Linux 6. Patch Installation Refer to the Readme. To check swap space, enter one of the following operating system commands: Solaris vmstat -S The result is expressed in kilobytes.
Linux vmstat -s grep total The result is expressed in kilobytes. File systems and required databases: To view file system sizes, enter the following command: Co-hosting To ensure uninterrupted library service and to avoid unanticipated problems due to resource contention, it is generally recommended that ACSLS run in a standalone environment on a dedicated server. Solaris Zones containers Solaris zones enable a system administrator to partition a standard, low cost server into four independent Solaris systems, each with its own isolated file system, and its own instance of Solaris.
Real-time monitoring of tape library components. A tree browser to navigate physical and logical configuration.
Real time alerts that are visible from each screen. The ability to filter volume and drive displays with user-specified criteria.
User-customized views of system events and system logs. A logical library cannot span more than one physical ACS or physical partition. SCSI client access can be established when creating or modifying logical libraries. These utilities include the following: Backup and restore operations for database tables. Import and docujentation operations for database tables.
Startup and shutdown operations. Dynamic configuration for physical libraries. Common operations with the acsss macro include:
