HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS -- any number of locally attached magnetic tape drives addressable via mt-stinit and accessible via tar. INSTALLATION -- unpack STaRBUC and extract it to /yourwebroot/starbuc (yes, the directory does matter, it should be in a primary subfolder of your web-root) ex. /opt/apache_pages/starbuc ex2. /var/www/starbuc -- grant permission on all of your tape drives to allow degraded web-server user (typically UNIX User 'apache') full access to the drives. ex. $ chmod 777 /dev/st0 ex2. $ chmod 777 /dev/st1 NOTE! You may have to add these commands to your start up file (for example, /etc/rc.d/rc.local) so that they are executed each time the system starts, else STaRBUC will not have permission to access the drive(s). -- edit file /yourwebroot/starbuc/.htaccess as follows... AuthUserFile /[yourwebroot]/starbuc/.htpasswd ... replacing '[yourwebroot]' with the absolute path. (you'll actually be opening 'default.htaccess' and then saving it as '.htaccess') -- create user accounts for each STaRBUC user as follows... ... $ cd /yourwebroot/starbuc/ $ htpasswd -c .htpasswd YOURUSERNAME ... replacing 'YOURUSERNAME' with your desired username. ... when prompted, enter your password, which will be hashed and encrypted auto-magically. -- edit config file /yourwebroot/starbuc/config/globaloptions_starbuc.php (see next section).

YOU'RE READY TO USE STaRBUC -- here are some very basic instructions for users... Scope and Application This console is intended for executing day to day operations of locally attached Magnetic Tape Drives and their Media on a Linux Host equipped with GNU Tar and mt-stinit (standard LA[*]P, no database required). Multiple tape drives can be administered simultaneously, and multiple Source-Data directories can be backed up to any locally attached Magnetic Tape Drive (provided the drive's capacity is sufficient for the data being written). For system integrity, operation execution can be limited to a specified time-access-window. Secure multi-user login via Apache builtin htaccess and encrypted passwords; and all operations are logged (with username and timestamp) to the system activity logfile. Typical Tasks A typical operation might be to simply rewind a tape, or retension a tape. To do so, insert the desired tape into the desired drive. Then, navigate to the 'Operations' tab, scroll down to view the status of your desired drive, and (assuming its status is 'ready') then click the 'RETENSION' request button to start the operation. Once the operation has started, the 'Operations' tab will once again display -- be sure to observe the status of the drive you just issued an operation request upon. As some operations are not instantaneous, you may observe the drive to be 'busy' or listed as 'device in use', in which case you will have to wait and periodically check the drive's status (by refreshing the 'Operations' tab) before you may issue another request for a subsequent drive operation. The same procedure can be applied to virtually all drive operations. Initiating a Backup To initiate a backup, place a tape into an empty system tape drive. Log into STaRBUC and observe the drive's status until it reports itself as 'ready'. If the tape does not report that is is already rewound to 'BOT', you may issue a request for 'REWIND'. With the drive's status indicating tape location 'BOT' and the drive 'ready', you may issue a request to 'INITIATE BACKUP' for whichever Source Data Directory you desire to send to that tape. When you return to the 'Operations' tab, you'll notice the drive report itself as 'busy' or 'device in use' -- this is an indication that your backup request was successfully initialized (and is running). The next day, prior to initializing the next day's backup, you will want to view the drive's status and (provided it is reporting 'ready') issue a 'EJECT' request to the drive. This will rewind the tape and eject it from the drive, allowing you to start the next day's backup. RESTORING FROM BACKUP -- a 'RESTORE' button was intentionally NOT added to the 'Operations' tab, in order to prevent accidental over-writing of your mission-critical live system data by an over-zealous user. -- to restore a tape, place the recovery tape into a drive, and then (after you've performed your own system checks to be sure you're ready to do a data dump), issue the following commands as root... $ mt -f /dev/[yourdrive] rewind $ mt -f /dev/[yourdrive] lock $ tar -xlpzf /dev/[yourdrive] /[where-you-want-the-data-restored-to] $ mt -f /dev/[yourdrive] unlock $ mt -f /dev/[yourdrive] eject --------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------
