What is LSSV?

This is nothing more than an abbreviation for Legato Single Server Version which a special NetWorker version which is delivered with the Oracle database software. This is something that Oracle implemented nearly a decade ago.

Installing LSSV

You will see the first hint when you browse through the directory structure of your Oracle CD - this example shows the directory of a downloaded Oracle 9.2i version for Windows.

nw-lssv

The name of the compressed file already points to the NetWorker 6.2 version.

Before you can install the software, you have to unpack the file to a temporary directory. To install the software, simply run the program setup:

nw-lssv

This of course only works if no other NetWorker version is already installed. Otherwise you will receive this message:

nw-lssv

The installation procedure does not differ from a ‘normal’ NetWorker installation process. However, not all NetWorker programs will be installed - as you can see below, the NetWorker User program icon is missing:

nw-lssv

If you start the NetWorker Administrator program, you will realize what LSSV stands for:

nw-lssv

As you can see, this version is a free NetWorker version - the version number points to NetWorker 6.1:

nw-lssv

If you open the Registration resource, you can verify that there is an enabler code automatically installed ... and it has even been automatically authorized:

nw-lssv

Even the clients’ Save set has automatically been preconfigured - by default it will not backup anything else but the NetWorker resource database - such has been implemented in NetWorker 6.2:

nw-lssv

Although the About command does not really point to a specific NetWorker version:

The name of the compressed file already points to the NetWorker 6.2 version.

nw-lssv

The Server resource also does not show any more details:

nw-lssv

Besides the name, this version has just limited capabilities as you can see from this screeenshot:

nw-lssv

Although the images already speak for themselves, you need to go to this URL to receive a clear written statement:

    Q? How does Legato LSM differ from Legato NetWorker ?
      The MML bundled with Oracle8 is not the full version. The bundled version includes support for backups to a maximum of four directly connected tape devices. It does not support backups across a network or autochangers and is limited to a maximum of four streams to the four devices.
