Creating a scheduled backup for NonTarget method

Scheduled backups, which are launched from the NetBackup master server through the creation of a backup policy, do not require the creation of targets if you plan on using the NonTarget method. However, you must use the Allow Scheduled Access option (see Allowing scheduled access).

To set up scheduled backups using the NonTarget method

  • From the NetBackup master server's administration console, create a new policy, following the steps described in the NetBackup Administrator's Guide, Volume I. Use the following settings:

On the Attributes tab, for Policy type, select NetWare.

On the Clients tab, enter the name of the NetWare server for the Client name, and then select Novell as the Hardware, and NetWare as the Operating System.

On the Selections tab, for Backup Selections enter a single forward slash (/). Using just a forward slash (/) backs up all resources configured in Allow Scheduled Access (see Allowing scheduled access). There should be nothing else in the Backup Selections list (path name).
