Enabling optimized synthetic backups with cloud storage
In the case of Hitachi cloud configuration, the True Image Restore (TIR) or synthetic backups do not work, if you have enabled the encryption option. To successfully run the TIR or synthetic backups, you need to enable the versioning option for buckets (or namespaces) through the Hitachi cloud portal. For more details on how to enable the versioning option, contact Hitachi cloud provider.
Enabling Optimized Synthetic backups for use with NetBackup Cloud Storage
- In the NetBackup Administration Console, select NetBackup Management > Policies > policy_name. Select Edit > Change, and select the Attributes tab.
- Select Collect true image restore information and with move detection.
- Confirm the Policy storage option is a valid Cloud storage unit.
The storage unit that is specified under Policy storage must be one of the supported Cloud vendors. You can't set Policy storage to Any Available.
Determining if a backup was an Optimized Synthetic backup
- In the NetBackup Administration Console, select Activity Monitor. Double click the backup that you want to check.
- Click the Detailed Status tab.
- Review the status for Performing Optimized Synthetic Operation. This text indicates the backup was an Optimized Synthetic backup.
