Back up BMR clients

A client is protected after a NetBackup backup policy that is configured for BMR protection backs it up. Backups must occur before a client fails and requires a Bare Metal Restore.

Each protected client must be backed up regularly by at least one policy that performs a full backup. The policy also can perform cumulative incremental or differential incremental backups, but a full backup must occur.

The backup saves the files of the computer on a storage device that NetBackup manages. The backup saves the configuration of the client on the BMR master server.

After a client is backed up by a policy that is configured for BMR protection, the client is registered with BMR as a protected client. It then appears in the Bare Metal Restore Clients view in the NetBackup Administration Console.
