Avamar SQL Plugin, installation & configuration

Bloavez mad !

J’espère que les fêtes se sont passées avec des excès de bouffe et d’alcool divers et variés et que maintenant que l’heure de la reprise à sonner, vous avez tous beaucoup de mal à remettre les idées en place ! 😀

Gnarf !!

Du coup, pour vous facilitez le quotidien, je vous propose un petit script qui vous permettra d’installer de manière silencieuse et dynamique l’agent SQL pour la solution de backup d’EMC : Avamar.

Ce script est à exécuter sur un server qui bénéficie déjà de l’agent Avamar, il install le plugin sql et l’active. Il vous permettra même de choisr entre deux mode de recovery simple ou full pour vos bases.
