qcreate replicationpair

Description

This command creates replication pair for the given replication set.

Diagnostics

Possible exit status values are:

0 - Successful completion.

1 - CLI usage failures, due to the use of an unsupported option or missing argument.

2 - Any other failure.

Example

Create a replication pair for client client1 with replication set repset1.

E:\commandline\Base>qcreate replicationpair -c client1 -a Q_FILE_REPLICATION -repset repset1 -spath E:\dir1 -dpath E:\dir2

qcreate repset

Description

This command creates a replication set under the given agent or instance.

A replication set is similar in concept to a backup set which is used by some Agents, and represents a logical grouping of Replication Pairs. This allows you to configure certain properties and activities at the Replication Set level, and thus control all the included Replication Pairs together.

Note: If you want to create repset from replication policy ensure your Replication Policy is created prior to running qcreate repset. The associated replication set policy will determine whether the replication set is for the ContinuousDataReplicator.

Upon successful completion, qcreate repset displays the message "Created replication set successfully" in the console. In case of an error, an error code and the error description are displayed in the following format: "sp: Error errorcode: errordescription"

Usage

qcreate repset [-cs commserver] [-rp replicationpolicy] -c client -a iDataAgent -n repsetname [-dh destinationhost] [-fp filterpath] [-arp allowrecoverypoint(y|n)] [-commonbasefolder commonbasefolder)] [-tf tokenfile] [-tk token] [-af argsfile]

Options

-cs

-c

Client computer name

-a

Example

  • Create a replication set (without Replication Policy) with name rd1 with common base folder under client client1 and agent Q_FILE_REPLICATION.

    E:\commandline\Base>qcreate repset -cs cs1 -c client1 -n rd1 -dh host1 -a "Q_FILE_REPLICATION" -fp "*.exe" -fp "*.txt" -arp "y" -commonbasefolder E:\xyz
    Created repset successfully.

  • Create a replication set (with Replication Policy) with name rd1 based on replication policy properties under client client1 and agent Q_FILE_REPLICATION.

    E:\commandline\Base>qcreate repset -cs cs1 -rp reppolicy1 -c client1 -n repset1 -a "Q_FILE_REPLICATION"
    Created repset successfully.

qlist dataagent
