the Central Admin Server Option (CASO) is installed, do not let the
central administration server delegate the job. It can delegate the
job to a media server that does not have offhost capability. You
must manually select the destination device for the CASO jobs that
use the offhost backup method.
On the navigation bar,
click the arrow next to Backup.
Click New Backup Job.
In the Properties pane,
under Settings, click Advanced
Select the appropriate
options as follows, and then click OK.
Use offhost backup to move backup processing from remote
computer to media server
Select this check box to enable offhost backup. If you are
enabling this for a single job, or as a default for all backup
jobs, then an offhost backup of all volumes will be performed if
all requirements are met.
Automatic - Use hardware if available; otherwise use software.
Select this option to enable VSS to select the best provider for
the selected volume.
Software - Use Veritas Storage Foundation for Windows.
Hardware - Use technology provided by hardware manufacturer:
If you select Software or Hardware as the snapshot
provider, then the following information applies:
The provider must support transportable snaps.
If multiple volumes are selected, then all volumes must be
snappable by the same type of provider.
Software and hardware providers cannot both be used to snap
different volumes in the same job. You must either create another
job, or make sure that the option Process logical volumes for
offhost backup one at a time is selected.
If any of the selected resources do not support offhost
Select one of the following options:
Continue the backup job (offhost backup is not used): Select
this to allow the backup job to complete even if any of the volumes
selected do not support offhost backup, or if an error that is
related to the snapshot or volume import occurs. The backup will
run according to all the other options that have been set for this
Fail the backup job (further selections are not backed up after
failure occurs): Select this to terminate the offhost backup job if
any of the selected volumes do not support offhost backup, or if an
error that is related to the snapshot or volume import occurs.
Process logical volumes for offhost backup one at a time
Enables the backup of multiple volumes in one job, while
creating a snapshot of only one logical volume at a time. To ensure
database integrity, or if a volume contains mount points, multiple
volumes may need to be snapped at one time.
After the logical volume is snapped and backed up, the snapshot
is deleted before the next logical volume is snapped. This option
increases the ability to meet the minimum quiet time needed to
complete a snapshot.
A logical volume can comprise multiple physical volumes. A
single logical volume can encompass all of the volumes on which
