Backing up local disks in a Veritas cluster

Select local disks for backup from the physical node to which they are attached.


If the computer on which you are running a backup using the Advanced Open File Option is in an environment with the Central Admin Server Option and the Veritas Cluster Server installed, and if failover occurs to a VCS node, you must manually clean up the snapshots before restarting the backup on the failover node. Refer to the VSFW documentation for details.

To back up local disks in a Veritas cluster

  1. On the navigation bar, click the arrow next to Backup.

  2. Click New Backup Job.

  3. On the backup selection pane, expand the domain that contains the nodes, and then select the local disks on each node.

    See Selecting data to back up .

  4. If you created a device pool for the cluster, select it as the default destination device so that jobs can restart on the failover node if failover occurs.

  5. Configure the remainder of the settings for the backup job.

  6. Run the backup job now or schedule it to run later.
