Creating a profile

Once you have determined the number of profiles that you need to accomodate your vault operations, you are ready to create your first profile using the New Profile dialog box.

To create a profile

  1. Select a vault in the NetBackup Administration Console. From the Actions menu, choose New > New Profile.

  2. In the New Profile dialog box, in the Name field, type a name for the profile. Symantec recommends that you use descriptive names. Profile names are case sensitive.

  3. Select the steps you want this profile to perform.

    You must select at least one step. However, you can change the selections when you configure the profile. Because you must always configure the choose backups step, it is not displayed on this dialog box.

  4. Click OK.

    The New Profile: profile name dialog box appears indicating that you are ready to configure the profile.
