Performing a manual backup
After you configure the servers and clients in your environment, you can test the configuration settings with a manual backup. Perform a manual backup (or backups) with the automatic backup schedules you created. A description of status codes and other troubleshooting information is available.
See the NetBackup Logging Reference Guide.
To perform a manual backup
- Log onto the master server as administrator (Windows) or root (UNIX).
- Start the NetBackup Administration Console.
- In the left pane, click Policies.
- In the All Policies pane, select the policy you want to test.
- Select Actions > Manual Backup.
- Select the schedule that you want to use for the manual backup.
- Select the clients that you want to include for the manual backup.
- To check the status of the backup, click Activity Monitor in the NetBackup Administration Console.
A parent job contains the whole file list and one or more child jobs. A child job is automatically launched for each host that contains SharePoint data. For example, assume that a SharePoint farm consists of four separate hosts. In this case, one parent job and four child jobs appear in the Activity Monitor. The front-end web server is listed as the client name for all jobs.
