Backing up data

The NetWare Client provides three ways of backing up data on your NetWare server:

Scheduled, or server-directed backups created at the NetBackup master server.

User-directed backups created at the NetWare server using the character-based menu-driven interface that runs on the NetWare file server console.

User-directed backups created at the Windows workstation running the NetBackup for NetWare NonTarget Browser.

The steps for creating a scheduled backup job at the NetBackup master server differ slightly depending on whether you selected to install the Target or NonTarget method.

With all three methods, the backup is controlled by the NetBackup master server and the data is copied to a storage device connected to the NetBackup media server, which can also be the master server.

Note: Scheduled full, incremental, and true image backups can only be performed by the NetBackup master server.
