Configuring the Storage Policy for a Parallel Log Backup

By default, log backup jobs run that run in parallel during a selective online backup use the selective online full backup data storage policy.

You can run this procedure and use a separate log policy for log backups run during the data phase of a selective online backup.

Note: The log phase of the selective online full backup still uses the data storage policy.

You can set this from the command line, or you can use an additional setting in the CommCell Console.

Procedure

  • On the CommServe computer, add the JMDontForceDataSPForLogBKP additional setting and configure the following values:
    Property Value
    Name JMDontForceDataSPForLogBKP
    Category CommServDB.GxGlobalParam
    Type Integer
    Value 1 -  to have log only backups that run in parallel with a selective online full backup use the log storage policy.

    0 - to have log only backups that run in parallel with a selective online full backup use the data storage policy. This is the default behavior.
