NSRMMGD(8)NSRMMGD(8)NAMEnsrmmgd - the NetWorker daemon that manages jukebox operations.
The nsrmmgd daemon provides an RPC-based service that manages all juke‐
box operations on behalf of the nsrd NetWorker server.
The nsrd server maintains all of the RAP resources that describe the
state of any jukeboxes and their associated devices, pools, and opera‐
tions. The nsrmmgd daemon is the process that is responsible for
ensuring that the necessary jukebox operations actually get performed
when needed by nsrd.
nsrmmgd runs on the same host as the nsrd server, and there will be at
most one such daemon running. Multiple nsrlcpd daemons (one per
enabled jukebox) may be started and controlled by nsrmmgd to handle the
lower-level control of, and interface to, the various jukeboxes. The
nsrlcpd processes that nsrmmgd manages may be distributed across multi‐
ple hosts, since nsrlcpd runs on the host that the jukebox is on.
The nsrmmgd daemon is invoked automatically by nsrd when needed, and
never needs to be started directly by a user. If nsrd detects that
there are any jukeboxes configured and enabled, then it will start nsr‐
mmgd as part of the nsrd startup process. If no jukeboxes are enabled
when nsrd starts up, then nsrmmgd will not be started until such time
as a jukebox resource gets added, or an existing disabled jukebox
resource is enabled.
The RPC program number for nsrmmgd is 390430.
The file to which nsrmmgd and other NetWorker daemons send
information about various error conditions that cannot other‐
wise be logged using the NetWorker event mechanism.
