Creating a hold
You can create a hold on one or more backup images by using the nbholdutil -create command.
Creating a hold on backup images may disrupt new backups from completing. Storage may fill up if previous backups are not automatically expired.
When you retry a failed Hold creation, an empty hold is created if the backup images have expired between the initial hold and the retry.
The nbholdutil -create command lets you create a hold for a backup image.
On a command prompt on the NetBackup master server, enter nbholdutil -create with appropriate options and elements. For example:
nbholdutil.exe -create -holdname legal_case1 -backupid win81.sky.com_1307425938 -allcopy
This command creates a hold called legal_case1. The backup image ID is win81.sky.com_1307425938. You must provide either the - allcopy option or the - primarycopy option. The - allcopy operation indicates that the hold includes all copies of the selected backup image. The - primarycopy option indicates that the hold includes only the primary copy of the selected backup image.
For more information about related command options, see the Veritas NetBackup Commands Reference Guide.
