Robocopy for NetApp



  • There are file servers with windows permission and it needs to copied for the Netapp .I have tried to copy the data by providing the IP of the source and Destination with the drive mentioned.

    I need to copy the data from the file server to Netapp by the command only by mentioning the IP of the source and destination.How to do this????



  • You would not mention the IP of the source, only of the destination. Robocopy would be run from the source so that isn't connecting by way of the IP, it connects simply by the fact that it is where Robocopy is going to run.



  • Here is an example of a Robocopy command that might work for you:

    Robocopy \\SourceServer\Share \\DestinationServer\Share /MIR /Z


  • In that example:

    /MIR = Mirror
    /Z = Make Robocopy able to be stopped and start again
    

    The example that I provided also allows for the "by IP address" of both source and destination like you wanted. But you don't want to do that, you want to run it locally from the Windows box and just transfer the data directly to the NetApp.

    So just put in the folder that you want to copy in the first portion and replace "DestinationServer" with the appropriate hostname or IP address of the NetApp.



  • So if the folder that you want to copy is C:\data and the IP Address of your NetApp is 10.23.44.72 then you might use this command:

    Robocopy C:\data \\10.23.44.72\data /MIR /Z


  • I need to copy the data without providing share name as well as the drive name.

    I have to provide only the IP of Source and Destination only.The copy of data has to be done with the administrator permission



  • The share name and drive name are pretty much required, otherwise Robocopy won't know wher you are trying to put your files.

    Then the simple answer is.... this cannot be done. File copying just doesn't work this way. Robocopy certainly does not.

    If you simply ask yourself how this would be done, you should be able to reason out why it will not work. If you have two humans and you need to transfer some items that they own from one to the other and you are supplies only with the addresses of the two people but are not told which items to transfer or even what items they have, what do you do?

    You could reword your question, then, like this...

    I need to copy some files from one place to another but I don't know what the files are and are not allowed to specify them. How do I perform magic?

    This is pretty much where you are. You want to move things from one place to another but you don't want to say what those things are. How are you envisioning that this would work?
