Backup Set Properties (General)

  • Use the Backup Set / Archive Set (General) tab to change the configuration of the selected backup set / archive set.
  • Use the New Backup Set / New Archive Set dialog box to define a new backup set.
  • Use the On Demand Backup Set / Archive Set (General) tab to change the configuration of the selected backup set / archive set.
  • Use the Create New On Demand Backup Set / Archive Set dialog box to define a new on demand backup set / archive set.

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.

Client Name / Client Computer

Displays the name of the Client computer on which this backup set / archive set is found.

Agent Type / iDataAgent

Displays the name of the iDataAgent to which this backup set / archive set belongs.

Instance

Displays the name of the instance to which this backup set belongs.

Partition

Displays the Lotus Domino Server data path under which this data is found.

Database Name

Displays the name of the database.

Replication Set

The name of the Replication Set for which the system automatically created this backup set and its default subclient.

Backup Set / New Backup Set Name

Specifies the name of the Backup Set. You can use this space to create or modify a name. (Backup Sets for certain iDataAgents cannot be modified.)

Choose Backupset Type

  • SharePoint Server Document

    The content of this backup set can specify backing up site collections, sub-sites, areas, libraries, and lists.

  • SharePoint Server Database

    The content of this backup set specifies backing up SharePoint 2007 site collections, WSS web application content databases, shared service providers, WSS searches, global search settings.

  • Force use of V2 APIs

    Specifies to backup SharePoint 2003 site collections, portal sites, site content databases, site indexes, teamsite databases, and webstorage system databases.

Image Backup Set

Specifies whether the selected  backup set will perform a SnapMirror to Tape (aka smtape) block backup. These backup types are supported for NetApp file servers running ONTAP 8.0 or higher. These types of backups are useful if the volumes on the filers contain mirrored snapshots. Moving mirrored snapshots to tape saves filer disk space and provides fast point-in-time volume recovery of mirrored data. 

Type

Displays the SharePoint Server version. Applicable only on machines where both SharePoint Server 2003 and 2007 versions exist.

Archive Set / New Archive Set Name

Displays the name of the archive set. If applicable, use this space to enter or change the name of the archive set.

On Demand

Displays whether the selected backup set / archive set is an On Demand Backup Set / Archive Set.

Make this the Default backup set

Specifies whether the selected backup set is the default or a user-defined backup. Selecting this option asserts this backup set as the default. The previously designated default backup set is automatically reallocated as a user-defined backup set. Clearing this option, is accomplished by opening the Backup Set Properties dialog box of some other backup set and clicking this option there, thereby designating that backup set as the default.

Subclient Content may contain Wildcard Entries

Allows for the selection of files with specified extensions that can be backed up during the backup operation.

Make this the Default archive set

Displays whether the selected archive set is the default, in cases where other types of archive sets are also supported on the same agent (for example: User-Defined Archive Set, DataClassSet, On Demand Archive Set).

Subclient Policy

Displays the name of the Subclient Policy associated with this backup set. If no Subclient Policy is associated with this backup set, it will display "<None>".

Job Options

  • Use Change Journal

    Specifies that NTFS change journal is used to determine whether files have been modified for all subclients within the backup set.

  • Use Recursive File Scan

    Specifies that the Recursive file scan is used to determine whether files have been modified for all subclients within the backup set.

    Preserve File Access Time

    Specifies whether the file access time is preserved and therefore not modified at the time of backup. Selecting this option may increase the time required to complete a backup.

    Check Archive Bit During Backups

    Specifies whether files are considered modified and therefore backed up based on either the state of the archive bit or the file modification time. In addition, the system resets the Archive bit of every file that it backs up. This option influences the way incremental and differential backups are conducted for all subclients within the backup set. It does not affect the behavior of full backups.

  • Optimized Scan

    Select this option when you want to scan large number of files and folders for the backup.  The system maintains a separate database to track changes in the files.

  • Decompress Data before Backup

    Specifies that data on a compressed drive is decompressed before being sent to the backup media, thereby preventing data recovery failures when restoring data to a volume that does not support compression. By default, data is backed up in compressed format if the data is on a volume that supports compression. When this option is initially selected, the next backup for each subclient within the backup set is converted to a full. This ensures that all of the client's compressed data is decompressed, including all data backed up prior to this selection.

Next Backup

Displays whether the next backup job may be full or non-full. When Next Backup displays Full the next backup job will be changed to a full.

Available DB Names

Select the database name(s) to be used as backup set name(s) by clicking the database name(s) and then clicking > to move the name(s) into Selection.

Selection

Specify the appropriate backup set (database) name(s) from the Available DB Names.

Storage Policy for All Log Files

Specifies the storage policy for all the log files in this backup set. You can use the list to change the storage policy.

Catalog Partition No.

Specifies the number of the catalog partition database for the DB2 DPF instance. This is the partition through which access to all system tables must go.

Connect as a Different User

Specifies to connect to the DB2 application using a different DB2 user account.

User Account

Displays the application User account used by the system to perform all Data Protection and Recovery operations for this backup set.

Change

Click to change the application user account.

Status of <database>

Displays the status of the database (backup set) as either CONNECTED or DISCONNECTED.

Refresh

Displays the most current status of the database.

Subclient

Displays those subclients that belong to the backup set / archive set.

Storage Policies

Select a storage policy from the list.

Enable Auto-Discover

Specifies whether to enable auto-discovery of new databases for all subclients of this backup set. Selecting this option will cause the system to discover and assign any new databases at the beginning of each backup operation. This option is available only for default dump backup set of postgresql iDataAgents.
