HP Save Set Manager for OpenVMS (SSM)

New—HP SSM supports HP Integrity servers, AlphaServer systems, and VAX systems

HP SSM provides three functions for manipulating OpenVMS save sets.

SSMgr Copy

This function provides the capability to copy save sets from one tape (or disk) to another. Some OpenVMS customers use the VMS COPY command to do this, but the VMS COPY command is not intended to copy save sets on tape. SSMgr Copy was built for copying tapes and understands the internal structure of the OpenVMS SaveSet. SSMgr Copy can be used to create a second copy of a backup if one is needed to be taken offsite.

SSMgr Validate

This function validates the internal consistency of a specified save set. This is very useful if you have older tapes with critical backups on them. SSMgr Validate can tell if the tape has bad blocks, can identify those blocks, and can determine if that data can be recovered by using the CRC and XOR information. If it can, the SSMgr Copy function recovers the data as it copies the save set to another tape.

SSMgr Merge

This function provides the ability to merge incremental save sets with other incremental or full save sets, reducing the frequency of full BACKUP operations. SSMgr Merge creates new virtual full or virtual incremental backups.
