hard drive inventory through API or CLIOpen in a New Window

Is there anyway to gather the hard drive inventory for a StoreOnce system (specifially the 6500) from either the CLI or the API SDK?

I found I could view it through the web GUI by expanding out the hardware, storage clusters, drive enclosures, sub enclosures, and drives, but even this isn't really ideal for an eight-node system I have which has many couplets and drive enclosures, and it also can't be exported out into a CSV or anything similar.




Recovery of StoreOnce VSA data-disk to new VSA?Open in a New Window

During investigation about how to get the most efficiency out of our backup-storage, and provide a flexible interface to it from our different backup-applications (MS DPM and Veeam), we have come across HP StoreOnce VSA.

We have established a test-setup, based on the free 1TB-license, with deployment of the VSA into our HyperV-environment. Here we are testing different setups around the StoreOnce, before jumping into buying those bigger TB-licenses, and it is all looking very promising.

However, while testing for failure or disaster-recovery of the StoreOnce-VSA itself, I haven't been able to find a way to re-attach an existing data-disk to a new (re)deployed VSA.
So... can anyone help me to come to a clear understanding, if it is possible to re-attach a previousl StoreOnce-VSA datadisk onto another VSA to regain access to the stored data?
And is it possible to export the configuration of the original VSA, and import it into a new VSA, in case of defect of the original one?

If not possible, of course we can always utilize backup-routines of the StoreOnce-VSA's themselfes, but here we would have to secure backup thru alternative backup/storage-systems, independent of the StoreOnce-VSA's...
So it will be preferred if it is possible to re-attach data-disks onto new VSA's.


Best regards,
Mikael K.


StoreOnce VSAOpen in a New Window


I know this isn't the correct forum but people here will probably know the answer.

I have two StoreOnce 50TB VSA's and want to save the config to an off-site file.  With my physical StoreOnce's I can do this and SFTP the config file to another place.  It seems to be not possible with the VSA.  Is this correct?



StoreOnce bulk acknowledge eventsOpen in a New Window

Is there any way to bulk acknowledge all events in StoreOnce 4500 (web or CLI)?

I'm a bit tired of clicking multiple times on dozens of pages by 20 events.

Software version 3.13.3 if it matters.


StoreOnce Upgrade v2 to v3Open in a New Window


i am using Backup Exec 2015 with a StoreOnce D2D 4324 G2.
Software Version is

Right now i have some issues with Housekeeping/Dedup-Ratio.
Dedup Ratio is pretty bad (1.5:1). Disks are filling up and Housekeeping received about 15.000 Jobs but seems not to process ones.

The Software Version is pretty old and i am think about upgrading to v3 hoping everything becomes better.
Does this make sense? Any improvements? I have a second Shelf installed on my StoreOnce. I don't have the original License for the Second Shelf. Am i able to export the License or will the License be migrated if i am upgrading vom v2 to v3?

Please give me a short Feedback to the upgrading process.

Many Thanks.
Kind Regards



Storeonce Catalyst APIOpen in a New Window

Hello there,
been searching specifications of Catalyst API for third-party integration with no success. On a white paper it says they've been 'published' but I can't seem to find anything but usual Storeonce REST SDK which are nice for reporting but not if you want to tightly integrate with Catalyst.

Anyone has any info?

Thank you

Hello, is StoreOnce RMC supported on Hyper-V?  The response I got from HPE support was kind of vague, and I don't see any references to it in any of the guides.  Thanks.

HPE Storeonce with IBM SAN Director CompatibilityOpen in a New Window

Anyone able to assit how can find the compatibility matrix between storeonce and ibm san director? I tried to check with data Agile BURA Compatibility Matrix for backup recovery & archive, under storeonce - storage networking only show a list of supported HP and Cisco san director/siwtch.

Does it mean this box doesn't support if to connect to IBM san director instead? Any other way can find the fact on this compatibility scenario?

StoreOnce 5100 Replicating new dataOpen in a New Window

Anyone has idea on how to export data from StoreOnce (NAS & VTL) to media (HDD) and import into StoreOnce in remote site.

Recently we decided not to use Catalyst as backup target and start to use NAS share. That means the whole NAS share  build up backup data from scratch. And now we have an issue with replication jobs accumulating; replication job can never catch up the backup jobs to complete, due to limited WAN link speed

Although moving back the StoreOnce from remote site to local site to replicate is an option, we would like to check if there is any tools or methods to handle such situation. There is always new data to backup, and the WAN link is never fast enough to catch up. We understand that StoreOnce support source dedup such that replication can be speed up without replicating redundant data between StoreOnce, however this does not apply to new backup data.

So I am just wondering is there any good idea in handling this.

We have thought about stopping other replication jobs and only leave the new one to complete the replication. But it seems that StoreOnce does not offer any interface/CLI to pause or manage the existing replication jobs; administrator can only stop or start replication per VTL/NAS.

We are planning to purchase a SO3540 to use with MS DPM. DPM needs a disk pool and for that the SO has to be configured on the DPM server as local disk. I could see only NAS and VTL option on the SO. How do i configure SO with DPM for the disk pool?
