Backing up shared disks in a Veritas cluster

Select shared disks for backup by selecting them from the Veritas Cluster Server virtual server.

To back up shared disks

  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 either the Veritas Cluster Server virtual server. The virtual servers allow your backup jobs to access shared data via any node that controls the disk.

  4. Select the drive letters that represent the shared disks.

  5. 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.

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

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