Configuring a policy to back up the configuration files
This topic shows how to create an automatic backup policy to back up the NetBackup configuration files. If you want users to be able to back up configuration files manually, you also must create a User Backup schedule.
To back up configuration files
- Create an MS- Windows (Windows) or Standard (UNIX) policy.
- Specify the attributes for the policy.
- On the Schedules tab, create a full backup schedule.
- In the Backup Selections list, add an entry that includes the full path name of the directory that contains the configuration files.
- Specify the clients to back up.
The clients must have the following installed:
NetBackup for DB2
If the client is installed in a DB2 cluster, add the virtual host name to the client list.
If you installed NetBackup on more than one node in the DB2 cluster, you must perform additional configuration. You must approve each validAuto-Discovered Mapping that NetBackup discovers in your environment.
