Job Options

A tab that provides information about the type of backup (i.e., backup level) that will be performed for this data protection schedule, such as Full, Incremental, Differential, etc., in addition to any agent-specific options selected for the operation.

  • Full

    Establishes the job as a Full backup, which backs up all data for the selected subclient.

  • Incremental

    Establishes the job as an Incremental backup, which backs up all data that is new or has changed since the last data protection operation for the selected backup set or subclient. (For the NetWare iDataAgent, since the last full, incremental, or synthetic full backup).

  • Differential

    Establishes the job as a Differential backup, which backs up all data that is new or has changed since the last Full backup for the selected backup set or subclient.

  • Pre-Selected Backup Type (Exchange Database iDataAgent only)

    Establishes the job as either an Incremental or Differential backup, as determined during installation or later through client configuration.

  • Synthetic Full

    Establishes the job as a Synthetic Full backup, which creates a Full backup from existing backup data for the selected backup set or subclient.

    Run Incremental Backup

    This option is only available when Synthetic Full is selected.

    When selected, enables the options for running an Incremental backup either immediately before a Synthetic Full backup or immediately after a successfully completed Synthetic Full backup. When cleared, an Incremental backup is not automatically run either immediately before or after the Synthetic Full backup.

    • Before Synthetic Full: Select this option to back up any data that is new or changed since the previous data protection operation in order to have it included as part of the Synthetic Full backup.
    • After Synthetic Full: Select this option to back up any data that is new or changed since the data protection operation that occurred prior to the Synthetic Full backup.
  • Advanced

    Click to access the Advanced Backup Options dialog box, which provides advanced data protection operation features. In the case of scheduling a synthetic full backup, this option is only enabled if the Run Incremental Backup option is selected.

  • Change Priority

    Click to access to the Change Priority dialog box.

  • Transaction Log

    Available for SQL Server Default Subclient only: Establishes the job as a transaction log backup, which backs up the transaction log providing point-in-time restore functionality.

  • Do not truncate log

    This option allows you to back up the SQL Server transaction log in situations where the database is damaged or has not been recovered.

  • Options

    Displays the operation type for the Quick Recovery Agent (e.g., QR Volume Creation or Incrementally Updated QR Volume).

  • Destination Volume

    For Quick Recovery Agent, displays the location of the physical volume the QR volume creation operation is copying to.

  • Mount Point

    For Quick Recovery Agent, displays the location where each destination volume is mounted to. This field is displayed only when Mount destination snap is not selected during schedule creation.

  • Advanced Options

    For Quick Recovery Agent, this field is displayed when the Specify Mount Point for Destination Volume is selected during schedule creation and when the latest Recovery Point will be mounted to the specified mount point. Value displayed will be Mount destination snap.
