[Manual] Defining Backup Target/Schedule
Backup/Restore - Defining Backup Target/Schedule
For each backup job, you must define the target and the time schedule.
On the Target/Schedule tab, you must define the target and the schedule for the backup job.
1st Media Pool
Combo box: List for the selection of a media pool to which the data is to be saved.
All defined media pools are listed for selection.
Combo box: Select a network interface through which the system can be accessed.
If the system features several network interfaces, select the path through which the system is to be accessed. The node manager assigns alias name to each network interface. This name is then shown in the Alias combo box.
This option is only available, if the media pool is a single tape drive.
Selected: Tape is overwritten.
Deselected: The backup is added at the end of the existing tape recording.
This option is only available, if a multiplexer is installed for the media pool.
A multiplexer enables you to write multiple jobs to the tape drive at the same time.
Don't use Network
This option is only available, if the system that you wish to back up is identical with that of the backup server on which a local backup is to be saved. In other words, no data is transferred through the network.
2nd Media Pool
Combo box: List for the selection of an alternative media pool to which the data is to be saved.
If the backup job to the 1st media pool fails, for example because the memory medium cannot be accessed, the program automatically performs a backup to the alternative 2nd media pool specified here.
Don't use Network
Alternate between pools
Selected: The backup is made alternately to the 1st media pool and the 2nd media pool.
By selecting 1 or 2, you can specify the media pool to be used at the start of the backup.
Selection of time schedule for the backup job.
Combo box: All defined schedules are listed for selection.
Job is activated.
Job is suspended for a while and can be activated at a later time.
Job is terminated and is not performed again.
This function allows for one test run of the defined backup job under real conditions. The test run cannot be repeated. The job is then assigned status UnderInvestigation
Backup job under investigation.
Text field: hh:mm
The actual duration of the backup job must not exceed the time specified here.
If this time is exceeded, the backup job is aborted and labeled as failed.
Text field: minutes
The delay with which the backup job is started must not exceed the specified maximum delay.
If this time is exceeded, the backup job is not started.
