NetBackup NDMP Backup Schedules and Types

hello-jon

Ideally should each NetBackup policy have three schedules?

 

  1. Full Backup (NDMP level 0)
  2. Cumulative Incremental Backup (NDMP level 1)
  3. Differential Incremental Backup (NDMP last level +1 < 9)

 

 

For example I have an NDMP backup policy with a single volume.  I run #1 the first week, #2 the second week, and #3 the third through nineth week.  Does this make sense?

 

 

We have cDOT 9.1, NetBackup 7.7.3 (configured for CAB).  I am using this Veritas article too: https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.TECH143455

 

 

Thanks!

it's make-sense. but it's up to you. and you should consider restore as well. as your way, to restore to current data, you need to restore from a full and other incrementals one by one. or u can do a full with level 1 everyday, in this case, just one full restore and one level 1 restore to the current data. but as what i said, it's up to you/your restore expectation.
