Re: saveAsNew without copying all folder links

Hi folks.

We have an issue with a saveAsNew java method that takes a long time complete. We use this method to create a new document from a existing template, so that the content of the new file will be the same. Some of these templates are linked to over 300 folders. When the new document is created, it has the same amount of i_folder_id values as the template.

TBO code:

super.doSaveAsNew(false, false, extArguments); // doSaveAsNew(shareContent, copyRelation, extArgument);

I tried to run a similar API command “saveasnew” and turn on SQL Trace. Found that this command executed 300 insert SQL commands, one for each i_folder_id.

INSERT INTO sb_dokument_r VALUES(N’09024bbd807fd5b4′, -168, 0, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL)

EXEC 0.5384423256

INSERT INTO sb_dokument_r VALUES(N’09024bbd807fd5b4′, -167, 0, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL)

EXEC 0.4907185458

Each insert takes around 0,5 seconds to complete, which our database expert has to look into. But what I’m trying to find out, if it is possible to create a document from another document without copying all the folders the original document is linked to? Either by sending some value in extArgument field, or calling on another method. That way, we would avoid the all these insert calls.

thanks for any response

Another One Bytes the Dust

Abstract: Using the Music industry as an example, we show where using modern information points, derived from technologies within the Hadoop framework, bring new data that changes the way a business/organisation will make decisions; we highlight that reliance only upon traditional data could lead to a catastrophic decision.

Real World Architecture and Deployment Best Practices

Abstract: Designing, architecting, and deploying a Big Data platform using Hadoop is a critical responsibility for analytics practioners and their IT business partners, but getting it right still feels like a bit of “Dark Magic.” During this session, we will pull back the covers on how Big Data applications impact underlying hardware based on real-world deployments and Dell EMC’s internal testing and benchmarking used to develop our architecture best practices. We aim to show how IT professionals can get their architecture right the first time for optimal performance and scaling.

Data Domain Virtual Edition in the Cloud

Businesses today are increasingly moving data to the cloud, and with that data becoming more mission critical, they need to be confident that it’s protected. For this reason, Dell EMC offers a robust portfolio of cloud protection solutions for any cloud strategy – making customer transformations to the cloud simpler. This blog is going to dive into protection storage in the cloud from Dell EMC by reviewing how the latest release of Dell EMC Data Domain Virtual Edition (DD VE) can protect your applications running in Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure.

journey.pngData Domain Virtual Edition provides all the benefits of the industry leading protection storage, Data Domain, in a software-defined solution. It offers up to 96TB active tier and up to 192TB long-term retention tier to meet the needs of enterprises and service providers in their on-prem datacenters. DD VE is simple, flexible and efficient, and best of all, easy to deploy and configure. So easy, in fact, that it can be up and running in just minutes. DD VE supports data protection on multiple platforms where customers run their workloads – VMware, Hyper-V and VxRail environments in on-prem datacenters, and now also includes AWS & Azure public cloud platforms. DD VE also enables data mobility across on-prem and cloud, and provides the ability to protect new workloads like MongoDB using BoostFS protocol.

In its latest release, DD VE can now protect applications running in AWS and Microsoft Azure. With DD VE in the cloud you get the same capabilities and management provided by Data Domain in the cloud such as high-speed, variable length deduplication, unparalleled data integrity to ensure reliable recovery, and network efficient replication. Plus, you can utilize leading backup applications included in the Data Protection Suite Family. DD VE allows you to protect your applications with up to 16 TB usable capacity (800 TB logical) with AWS, and up to 15 TB usable capacity (750 TB logical ) with Azure per instance in its initial release. Capture.PNG.pngDD VE in the cloud also supports key Data Domain capabilities like DD Replication, DD Encryption and DD Boost. With replication, you can move data between an on-prem Data Domain and the cloud, or even replicate data between two instances of DD VE running in the cloud in the same or different regions. Encryption during replication over the wire is also supported, and you can use embedded or external on-prem key manager for encryption.


Additionally, the same dashboard based resource management, monitoring and reporting center offered with Data Domain can be used with DD VE in the cloud. With Data Doman Management Center running in AWS and Azure, customers will be able to gain aggregated management for multiple systems, view capacity and replication management and manage health and status resource monitoring.

Not only do you get the secure protection you trust in the cloud with DD VE, but Dell EMC also provides faster, more efficient backup with our leading backup applications included in the Data Protection suite Family – allowing you to more efficiently backup your applications running in the cloud.

suite.PNG.pngDD VE with the Data Protection Suite Family provides support to protect clients and applications running natively in AWS and Azure, and allows for direct backup from application to DD VE via the application owners native UIs. Additionally, administrators can also define policies and orchestrate data protection from within the data protection UI. Enterprise-level monitoring and reporting offered in the Data Protection Suite Family for on-premises applications and workloads also works in AWS and Azure.

For emerging applications, BoostFS has validated cloud support for MongoDB, EnterpriseDB, Commvault and MySQL.

Re: Data Domain local user password aging

Dear Experts!

Our customer using DD2500 with 5.7 DDOS. Customer doesnt want to change

the DD user password every time when it is expires, he want a password for the local user which doesnt expires.

The gui parameters are:

– minimum days between change

– maximum days between change

– warn before expire

– disable days after expire


Is there any option to create a non aging password for the user?

The GUI allow only to set maximum days between change and it is 99999 and it is 273 years,

but is there any other options which we can create a local user with non expiring password?

Thanks in advance!

Unable to backup any servers at one site

If this is happening at only one site, the issue is probably specific to that site (e.g. firewall).

The first thing I would check is whether or not these clients can connect to the Data Domain. There is a utility called ddpconnchk that you can run on the client system to verify connectivity to the DD. KB334991 describes how to use ddpconnchk. Note that while the article talks about the “media server”, you should run this on the system where the Avamar client is installed since the clients connect directly to the DD using DDBoost.

If all the connectivity checks succeed, the issue may be certificate related. For example, clients on the other side of a NAT may be rejecting the connection because the NAT IP addresses are not on the DD certificate’s list of Subject Alternate Names. If that is the case, I’d recommend working with support.


Re: mccli backup restore throws – error VMware Vm restore


When I try to perform backup using following command i get error:
