Configuring backup schedule for cloud workloads

You can add backup schedule in the Attributes tab of the Add backup schedule dialog, while creating a protection plan for the Azure and Azure Stack cloud workloads.

See the Managing protection plans section of the NetBackup Web UI Administrator's Guide, for details of how to create a protection plan.

To add backup schedule to a cloud workload

  1. On the left, click Protection > Protection plans and then click Add.
  2. In Basic properties, enter a Name, Description, and select Cloud, from the Workload drop-down list.
  3. Select a Cloud Provider from the drop-down list, click Next. In Schedules, click Add schedule.

    In the Add backup schedule tab, you can configure the options for retaining the backup and the snapshot.

  4. From the Recurrence drop-down, specify the frequency of the backup.
  5. In the Snapshot and backup options, do any of the following:
    • Select Keep snapshot along with backup option to retain both the snapshot and the backup. Specify retention period for both the snapshot and the backup, using the Keep snapshot for and the Keep backup for drop-downs. Select Full from the Backup type drop-down. Select Initiate backup only when the snapshot is about to expire option, to start the backup job just before the retained snapshot expires.

    • Select Keep snapshot only option, to retain only the snapshot. Specify retention period for the snapshot using the Keep snapshot for drop-down.

    • Select Keep backup only option, to retain only the backup. The snapshot expires immediately after the backup. Specify retention period for the backup using the Keep backup for drop-down. Select Full from the Backup type drop-down.

      Note:

      As NetBackup supports granular restore only from the snapshot, if you select Keep Backup Only the granular recovery options do not work.

  6. Continue creating the schedule in the Start window tab, as described in the Managing protection plans section of the NetBackup Web UI Administrator's Guide.
Availability of granular recovery for different backup options

Availability of the granular recovery for files or folders option, depends on the different backup options that you select for the workload.

  • When you select the Keep snapshot along with backup option, granular recovery is available.

  • When you select the Keep snapshot only option, granular recovery is available.

  • When you select the Keep backup only option, granular recovery is not available.

Note the following:

  • NetBackup performs indexing during the actual backup job, but you can perform the recovery of individual files or folders only from the snapshot copy.

  • For indexing in a backup job, the CloudPoint server and the protected asset do not need to be within the same region. The CloudPoint server can be anywhere within or outside the cloud.

  • If the VM is not in connected state, then the VM backup continues and the backup job is marked as partially successful. In this case, you cannot restore individual files or folders as the indexing is not available when the VM is not connected.
