## ## Sherlock v0.1 written 040409:1650 by BJP ## ## Sherlock, given a hostname, can determine if that host is known to +netbackup. ## ## Usage: sherlock.pl <hostname> ## if ($#ARGV<0) { print "\n\nUsage: sherlock.pl <hostname>\n"; print "Example: sherlock.pl cistest\n\n"; exit(); } print "\nSherlock: Starting up..\n"; if ($ARGV[0]=~/^b_/) { print "Sherlock: Stripping off the \"b_\" prefix temporarily.. +\n"; $ARGV[0]=$'; } print "Sherlock: Checking to see if NetBackup knows about $ARGV[0]..\n +"; @results=`/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/bpclntcmd -pn -hn $ARGV[0] 2>&1 `; +## For some reason, this command will dump ordinary status informatio +n to stderr versus stdout, hence the gag suffix on the command. foreach $item (@results) { chomp ($item); if ($item=~/TRY_AGAIN/) { print "Sherlock: Bad news. NetBackup does not recogniz +e $ARGV[0] as a valid peer name under its care.\n"; print "Sherlock: Test results: FAIL\n"; print "Sherlock: Exiting..\n\n"; exit(); } if ($item=~/0x/) { print "Sherlock: Good news!
