nsr_label - NetWorker resource type 'NSR label'


       type: NSR label


       Each  NSR  label template is described by a single resource of type NSR
       label (see nsr_resource(5)).  To edit the NSR  label  resources  for  a
       NetWorker server, type:
              nsradmin -c "type:NSR label"
       or  use  the  nwadmin(1) GUI.  See the nsradmin(1) manual page for more
       information on using the NetWorker administration program.

       This resource describes the templates used to generate volume labels.


       The following attributes are defined for resource type nsr_label.   The
       information  in  parentheses  describes  how  the  attribute values are
       accessed.  Read-only indicates that the value cannot be changed  by  an
       administrator.   Read/write means the value can be set as well as read.
       Choice means that the value of the attribute can only  be  one  from  a
       list  specific to that attribute (for example, separator can be '-', or
       '.').  Several additional attributes (for example,  administrator)  are
       common to all resources, and are described in nsr_resource(5).

       comment        (read/write)
              This  attribute  is  provided  for the administrator to keep any
              explanatory  remarks  or  supplementary  information  about  the

       fields         (read/write, list of strings)
              This  attribute specifies the constituent fields of a label tem-
              plate.  When generating a volume name, the current value of each
              field  is  concatenated.  The first field is considered the most
              significant, the last field the least.  If there is a  separator
              (see  below)  defined,  then it will be placed between fields as
              they are concatenated to form a volume  name.   The  fields  are
              separated by commas.

              There  are  four  different  types  of  fields: 'numeric range',
              'lower-case range', 'upper-case range', and a 'list of strings'.
              A  'list  of strings' consists of space (' ') separated strings.
              The other types are specified as starting and ending values sep-
              arated  by  a  dash ('-') .  The starting and ending values of a
              range must have the same number of characters.

              The next attribute (see below) contains the current position  or
              value of each field.  After a volume name has been assigned to a
              volume, the next attribute  is  incremented.   When  the  ending
              value  is  reached,  the  current  value will wrap around to the
              starting value.  A 'list of strings'  field  is  incremented  by
              selecting the next string in the list.  A numeric range field is
              incremented by adding 1 to its current  value.   Lower-case  and
              upper-case  ranges are incremented by moving on to the next let-
              jukebox resource, see nsr_jukebox(5).
              Example: name: Default;

       next      (read/write, single string)
              This  attribute  specifies  the  next volume name to use.
              After it is assigned to a volume, the  next  volume  name
              will  be  generated  and  remembered here.  The attribute
              consists of a component for each of the specified  fields
              and the separator.
              next: aa.00;

              Using the separator and field attributes shown above, the
              next attribute would show:  next: aa.01;
              This  would  be  followed  by:    next:  aa.02;   separa-
              tor (read/write,  single  choice, null ok) This attribute
              specifies the character to  use  to  separate  the  label
              fields.  It may be one of '.', '_', ':', '-' or NULL.
              Example: separator: .;


       A  label  resource  named  engineering  is shown below.  (Hidden
       options  are  not  shown.)   There  are  two  range-type  fields
       defined,  the  first  ranging from 'aa' to 'zz', the second from
       '00' to '99'.  The separator attribute has the value '.' and  it
       will  be inserted in between the two fields.  The next attribute
       holds the next name that will be  generated  by  this  template.
       After  aa.00  is used, the 00 will be incremented.  The new name
       will be aa.01.  After 98 more names  have  been  generated,  the
       next  attribute  will  hold  the  name aa.99.  When this name is
       incremented, the next attribute will hold ab.00.  After generat-
       ing 67,500 more names, the next attribute will hold zz.99.  This
       will be followed by aa.00.

              type: NSR label;
              name: engineering;
            fields: aa-zz, 00-99;
         separator: .;
              next: aa.00;

       A label resource named accounting is  shown  below.   The  field
       attribute   defines   five   component  fields.   The  separator
       attribute has the value '.'.  It will  be  inserted  in  between
       adjacent  fields.   The  next attribute holds the next name that
       will be used with  this  template.   After  0.23.aa.AA.first  is
       used, the fifth field will be incremented.  The new name will be
       0.23.aa.AA.second.  This will be followed  by  0.23.aa.AB.first.
       After  1349  more volume names, the name will be 0.23.aa.ZZ.sec-
       ond.  This will be followed by  0.23.ab.AA.first.   After  using
       9.45.zz.ZZ.second,    the    name    will    wrap    around   to

              type: NSR label;
              name: accounting;
            fields: 0-9, 23-45, aa-zz, AA-ZZ, first second;
         separator: .;
