NetBackup NDMP Backup Schedules and Types
2017-07-06 06:05 PM
Ideally should each NetBackup policy have three schedules?
- Full Backup (NDMP level 0)
- Cumulative Incremental Backup (NDMP level 1)
- 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

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.
