omnircsync.pl allows to sync omnirc parameters to clients that are present in the Cell (defined in cell_info). Based on what util_cmd offers today, the script will only set options to a defined value. No parameter will be removed. Any local modifcations that do not conflict will not be changed.
Data Protector is highly customizable product with a wide range of configuration options. While the any global options applies to the whole Cell, the omnirc configuration file allows the user to tweak a specific client or just a module on that client system. It you have to manage a large amount of individual clients this can become a management challenge to make sure the right omnirc options are present on the right the client system. Over the years several ways to deal with this has been found, e.g. the script omnircsync.pl (available in the download section) using the util_cmd -setomnirc push functionality.

Using omnirc settings you can control the client behavior and is important from performance point of view too. With the Data Protector default settings the omnirc file is not present and usually has to be created from the template file. To prevent manual work, either by copying the file or using the command util_cmd, Sebastian Köhler (http://www.syncer.de) wrote a Perl script automating all the stuff. Kudos to Sebastian! The script can be found at the end of the article or in download section. The script is very handy and easy to use – see screenshot. The settings can be distributed to all clients, clients with selected operating system, or clients with selected Data Protector modules. The script either
