Performing consistency checks

You can perform consistency checks of the SQL Server database(s) before NetBackup begins a backup operation. These checks are performed for both server-directed and user-directed backups.

To perform consistency checks

  1. Open the NetBackup Administration Console.

  2. Expand NetBackup Management > Host Properties > Clients.

  3. In the right pane, right-click on the client and select Properties.

  4. In the left pane, expand Windows Client and click SharePoint.

  5. From the Consistency check before backup list, choose which check NetBackup should perform before backups.

    See About NetBackup for SharePoint Server consistency check options. for descriptions of these options.

    If you choose to perform a consistency check, you can select Continue with backup if consistency check fails. NetBackup then continues to perform the backup if the consistency check fails.

  6. Click OK to save your changes.
