Creating BCH Files for Veritas Direct to Tape

By john monroe,

This script was written to solve a problem where we needed to dynamically create bch files for Veritas Backups direct to tape backups.  We needed to parse the sysdatabases daily and create the bch files that veritas would use to backup each server and database.  This SQL Script uses xp_cmdshell to call a windows shell script called runit.cmd.  I will include both scripts.
The interesting thing for me was passing the @dataname variable to the external script as the first argument in the command line.  I can think of many other applications that I can use this method for.  I also know that in SQL 2005 xp_cmdshell is locked down so there are steps there that need to be done in order to use this set of scripts in SQL 2005.
