Modifying DATASTOR Shield™ Tasks

If you need to change the computer name of your DATASTOR Shield™ computer, or perhaps change the administrator account used for running DATASTOR Shield™ tasks, or if you need to change the DATASTOR Shield™ installation directory, use AiqUtil.exe

AiqUtil.exe is automatically placed in the installation directory when you install the DATASTOR Shield™ products.

Changing the name of your DATASTOR Shield Enterprise Protection Server computer

After changing the name of your DATASTOR Shield™ computer, or if you've restored your DATASTOR Shield™ Enterprise Protection Server to a different computer (see Exporting and Importing your Archive System in the Knowledge Base section of the web site), you must change the 'start-in path' of all remote tasks to point to the new computer name.

From a command prompt, run the utility as follows:

<dataStor Shield installation directory>\aiqutil /modifytask /startinpath /newservername:<new computer name> /computer:all /archivetask:all /domain:<domain of task 'Run as' account> /userid:<user ID of 'Run as' account> /password:<password of 'Run as' account>

You can omit the /password parameter if you wish, in which case you will be prompted for the password.

Changing the installation directory of your DATASTOR Shieldproduct

If you have restored your DATASTOR Shield™ product to a different installation directory (see Exporting and Importing your Archive System in the Knowledge Base section of the web site), you must change all local DATASTOR Shield™ tasks (i.e. archive tasks and store tasks) to run from the new directory.

From a command prompt, run the utility as follows:

<dataStor Shield installation directory>\aiqutil /modifytask /startinpath /newstartinpath:<new installation path> /computer:<dataStor Shield computer> /archivetask:all /storetask:all /store:all /domain:<domain of task 'Run as'' account> /userid:<user ID of 'Run as' account> /password:<password of 'Run as' account>

You can omit the /password parameter if you wish, in which case you will be prompted for the password.

Changing the administrator account of your DATASTOR Shieldproduct

If the administrator account used for running DATASTOR Shield™ tasks (a.k.a. 'Run as' user) is changed for whatever reason, you will need to update all of the tasks with the new account information.
After the new administrator account is set up and active, run the aiqutil.exe program as follows:

<dataStor Shield installation directory>\aiqutil /modifytask /runasuser /computer:all /archivetask:all /storetask:all /store:all /newdomain:<domain of new 'Run as' account> /newuserid:<user ID of new 'Run as' account> /newpassword:<password of new 'Run as' account>

You can omit the /password parameter if you wish, in which case you will be prompted for the password.

Changing the scheduled task priority of your DATASTOR Shield™ Enterprise Protection Server protection plan

The scheduled task used to run a DATASTOR Shield™ protection plan may run with three priority levels, below normal, normal, or above normal. You may change the priority of one or all plans on one or all remote computers.

From a command prompt, run the utility as follows:

<dataStor Shield installation directory>\aiqutil /modifytask /runasuser /computer:<computername | all> /archivetask:<Plan{UID} | all> /newdomain:<domain of new 'Run as' account> /newuserid:<user ID of new 'Run as' account> /newpassword:<password of new 'Run as' account> /priority:<abovenormal | normal| belownormal>

Specify a single computer name or all, a specific plan in format Plan{UID} or all, the proper domain and userid, even if the same as before, and enter abovenormal, normal, or belownormal for priority. You can omit the /password parameter if you wish, in which case you will be prompted for the password.
