group of one or more clients.
These criteria include the following:
Storage unit and media to use
Clients to be backed up
Before you create and run a backup policy, ensure
that you set the value for the following items in the
The Maximum concurrent
jobs field in Storage Unit Settings dialog box.
This value indicates the
number of concurrent backup jobs that can use a storage unit and
directly affects the performance of the backup.
Symantec recommends that you change the value of
this setting based on the following:
Your Enterprise Vault configurations
The policy clients
The policy backup selections
The capability of the storage unit

Symantec recommends that
you change the value based on your Enterprise Vault configuration
and backup selections.
To back up an Enterprise
Vault environment, create at least one Enterprise Vault policy with
the appropriate schedules. A configuration can have a single policy
that includes all clients or many policies, some of which include
only one client.
