SYNOPSISnsrlcpd-s server N mmgd_daemon_num -n lcpd_daemon_num
The nsrlcpd daemon provides a uniform library interface to the Net‐
Worker media management daemon, nsrmmgd. The nsrlcpd implements class
specific protocols to communicate to the NetWorker supported library
classes which include:
o SCSI medium changers connected through SCSI cables, fibre-channel
SANs or NDMP Services.
o Microsoft Removable Storage Subsystems.
o Standard Tape Libraries (STL), sometimes refered to as "SILO" Subsys‐
o AlphaStor Media Management Subsystems.
The nsrlcpd manages the library subsystem media, slot, drive and port
resources providing control to move and access the resources within the
The NetWorker media management service starts one nsrlcpd daemon for
each virtual jukebox instance defined in the NetWorker server's config‐
uration resource database. Each nsrlcpd daemon will be started on the
NetWorker Storage Node which has access to the library subsystem inter‐
face. Once the nsrlcpd daemon is started, it provides the ability to:
o Accept configuration information to access and control the library.
o Report library components and characteristics as controllable
o Report accessible media within the library.
o Allocate and deallocate media for use by the NetWorker application.
o Load and unload media into read and writable devices.
o Deposit and withdraw media into the library systems.
The nsrlcpd daemon provides an RPC-based library control program ser‐
vice across network boundaries. The RPC program number for nsrlcpd is
390429. To support multiple instances, the RPC version number used by
the nsrlcpd during the RPC service registration is calculated by multi‐
plying 100 by the nsrlcpd daemon number and adding 1, which is the base
version. For example, a nsrlcpd process started with the command,
"nsrlcpd -s NetWorkerServer -N 1 -n 2" would register with the program
number 390429 and the version number 201.
Specify the controlling NetWorker server.
-N mmgd daemon num
Specify the nsrmmgd daemon number.
-n lcpd daemon num
Specify the nsrlcpd daemon number.
The file to which nsrlcpd and other NetWorker daemons send
information about various error conditions that cannot other‐
wise be logged using the NetWorker event mechanism.
