Subclient Properties (Content)

Use this tab to define the contents of a new subclient or to change the content of an existing subclient. Items included in subclient content are backed up/migrated/content indexed by the subclient. Note that all the options described in this help may not be available and only the options displayed in the dialog box are applicable to the agent for which the information is being displayed.

Contents of subclient

Displays a list of paths of data/workspaces/categories/documents/folders included as content for this subclient. Special characters (such as "\" "/" "." ",") represent content of the default subclient, that is not assigned to other subclients within the backup set. For Unix, when a symbolic link is included in the subclient content, the target of the symbolic link along with the link itself can be displayed.

  • Delete

    Click to delete the selected path/data/folder from the Contents list for this subclient.

  • Browse

    Click to browse for new content that you want to add to this subclient.

    When browsing content while configuring SharePoint subclients, you can add content via multiple selections with the CTRL or SHIFT keys.

  • Add Paths

    Click to enter a new content path.

    Enter the UNC path of the share to configure a subclient to backup and restore.

    • Type in the UNC path of the share that has to be added in the Enter New Content field and click Add. Repeat this step to add more files and/or folders to the content.

      1. If this is the first UNC path being entered as subclient content the Impersonate NT User dialog box will appear. Enter the user account information for the Domain User with permissions for that path. Note the following:
        • Login name must be provided in the following format: <domain>\UserName
          For example, to log on as usr1 in a domain called MyDomain, enter MyDomain\usr1 as the user name
        • The domain user that you specify should have access to all the UNC paths entered as contents of the subclient.
        • Adding a UNC shared path as subclient content of a member server that points to a server in a workgroup requires the local user name and password is identical to a domain user's name and password. (This is a scenario where <UserName> and password is accepted.)
        • Adding a UNC shared path as subclient content of a non-member (workgroup) server that points to a member server requires the local user name and password is identical to a domain user's name and password. (This is a scenario where <UserName> and password is accepted.)
        • The domain user can be changed at a later time with the As User button.
      2. To save your content changes, click OK.
    • For File Archiver for Windows, UNC paths are not supported with subclients associated with Local File System.

  • As User

    Click to enter/modify the User Name and Password required to access the UNC path when a UNC path is entered as content.

Discover

Click to display the data paths to which the symbolic links in the data contents are pointing. The paths will be displayed in Contents of subclient. This button is enabled only when Expand symbolic links of subclient content below is enabled.

Instead of clicking Discover, wait until the backup completes and then refresh the subclient. Then go to Contents of subclient. The data contents for the symbolic links should be displayed.

SQL DB client

Specifies the client computer where the SharePoint Database and SQL Server  iDataAgent is installed.

Agents

Specifies the SQL Server  iDataAgent  that was used to create the SnapProtect backup of the SharePoint Database.

Instance

Specifies the instance of the SQL Server iDataAgent that was used to create the SnapProtect backup

SQL DB subclient to use

Specifies the subclient to use for mining the SnapProtect backup.

Proxy Client

Click if you want the data protection job of the SnapProtect backup to run on the Proxy Client. Then specify the computer for the Proxy Client.

Configure

Click to discover and change the associations of the mailboxes to the subclients. Any mailboxes included as content for a user-defined backup set/subclient will be automatically excluded from the default backup set/subclient.

Backup Content Path

Click the drop-down list arrow to display the root volumes on the file server. To change the root volume, click one in the list. If you want to refine the content path further, use the space to the right of (or below) the root volume list to enter additional path information. Note the following:

  • For NetApp, the root volume is the mount path of each volume.
    Example: for volume FS1 the root volume will be /vol/FS1.
  • For EMC Celerra, the root volume is the mount point created for a volume.
    Example: for volume FS1 with mount point /FS1 the root volume will be /FS1.
  • For Hitachi, no root volumes are shown in the drop down list. Type the full path of the root volume.
    Example: for volume FS1 with mount point /mnt/FS1 the root volume will be /mnt/FS1.
  • For BlueArc, the root volume is a combination of a descriptor of the path and the volume name.
    Example: for volume FS1 with a mount point of / the root volume will be /__VOLUME__/FS1.

For Celerra tape silvering, specify the source path of the replication that was created from the Celerra Management Console or command line. Append .ts to the path name. For example, /sourcefs/.ts.

Enter new content

Use this space to specify the paths of other data that you want the subclient to contain.

Add

Click to add the data that you specified in Enter new content or Backup Content Path to the Contents list.

Treat characters as regular expressions

Specifies whether regular expressions (i.e., strings that use wildcard characters) will be interpreted as wildcards or as literal strings.  Select this option to recognize wildcard characters in the content path. This check box will be applicable only for  SnapProtect® 9.0.0 clients or Unix File System iDataAgent clients. For Windows File System iDataAgent 10.0.0 clients, you must use the escape characters if you want to treat the wildcard characters as literal strings. See Wildcards for a list of supported wildcards.

Case Sensitive

Specifies whether content paths will be case sensitive. Selecting this option will cause the system to recognize the difference between upper case and lower case characters in the content path.

Backup System State

Specifies whether the system state will be backed up with this subclient. Selecting this option causes the system state to be backed up with the file system for this subclient.

Backup Office Communication Server

Specifies whether the Office Communications Server will be backed up with this subclient. Selecting this option causes the OCS data & settings to be backed up with the file system for this subclient.

  • Edit

    Click to enter/modify the User Name and Password required to access the Office Communications Server.

Only backup files that qualify for archiving

Click to backup only those files within the specified content, which meets the archiving rules.

Enable Apple Double Support

Specifies whether to facilitate the management of resource fork data in Apple Double-encoded Macintosh files.

This option may not work on Solaris subclients.

Expand symbolic links of subclient content

Specifies whether to display the data paths to which the symbolic links (if any) in the subclient content are pointing. Whenever this option is enabled, the Discover button discussed above is enabled and used to this purpose.
