Creating a Windows File System Backup Set from the Command Line Interface
This command creates a new backup set under the given client and agent.
The qcreate backupset command also allows the user to create default backup sets and on-demand backup sets. The default subclient created under the backup set can also be associated with a storage policy. If a storage policy name is not included, the subclient remains unassigned.
Upon successful completion, qcreate backupset displays the message "Created backupset successfully" on the command prompt. In case of an error, an error code and description are displayed as: "backupset: Error errorcode: errordescription"
