Purpose

The export_job_metadata command exports metadata of a job (job definition, save sets, and targets) based on the requested backup version. In the case of a disaster to the DSC repository, exporting and then importing job metadata enables job migration and restoration to a different DSA environment.

The data must be exported in the following order:
  1. Targets
  2. Job definition
  3. Save sets

Syntax

export_job_metadata -n|-name Name -d|-directory DirectoryPath -v|-backup_version BackupVersion -t|-type Type -u|-user_authentication User

Example

dsc export_job_metadata -n job1 -v latest

Parameters

n|name Name
The name of the job on which to perform the action. Must be unique for each job.
job1
d|directory DirectoryPath
[Optional] Directory where the files are exported to or imported from.
var/opt/dsa
v|backup_version BackupVersion
[Optional] Backup version number. Enter latest or 0 for the latest save set.
latest
t|type Type
[Optional] The type of job metadata. You may enter JOB (for the job definition), SAVESET, or TARGET. If no value is specified, all three types of metadata are included.
JOB
u|user_authentication User
Required when security management is enabled. Supplies the command with the Viewpoint user, and triggers a password prompt for authentication.
