NAME

edstage - Staging scripts for EnduraData File replication and Synchronization software

SYNOPSIS

eddist_stage.bat for windows eddist_stage.sh for mac, linux, solaris, AIX ed_receiver_stage.bat for windows ed_receiver_stage.sh for mac, linux, solaris, AIX

DESCRIPTION

ed*stage* Are scripts that will allow you to stage certain events at the start of data replication and file transfer. The staging scripts allow you to:

<B Run certain scripts or programs to map or mount file systems for example> <B Run certain scripts to start or stop other services> <B Run certain scripts to cleanup or move or compress logs> <B Run certain scripts to run and send reports> <B Run certain scripts to change run services as other users: this is the prevalent use>

The staging scripts run when the sender and when the receiver start. The scripts should not include commands that take a long time to execute under windows otherwise the service will fail. The scripts are meant to prepare for edpcloud operations.

Although EnduraData advises against replicating data to UNC and CIFS maped drives(because of the NTFS overhead), a common use for these scripts under Windows is to map UNC paths or CIFS network drives in order for the services to have access to them.

STAGING THE DATA SENDER SIDE

eddist_stage.*

This script runs on the sender side. It can be used to map drives if such drives will be used by replication. A common use is to mount NAS appliances or other remote file systems.

ed_receiver_stage.*

This script runs on the receiver side. It can be used to map drives if such drives will be used by replication as a destination path. A common use is to mount NAS appliances or other remote file systems.
