To run a vault session automatically at a specific day and time, use a Vault policy. A Vault policy is a NetBackup policy that is configured to run Vault jobs; a Vault policy does not back up client systems. The policy includes the schedule for when the Vault session should run (day or date and time window) and the command to run a Vault profile.
How you schedule your sessions depends on how you conduct operations as follows:
A Vault policy can run a profile that ejects media that contains original images created during a backup job. If you create multiple original backup images concurrently, you can assign one or more of the original images to an off-site volume pool. A separate Vault policy can run a Vault job that ejects the media on which those images are stored.
A Vault policy can run a profile that selects images, duplicates those images, and ejects the media on which those images are stored. That policy can perform both operations daily or at some other interval that meets your requirements. If your vault vendor arrives daily to pick up media or you remove the off-site media from your robot immediately, you may need only one policy for that vault.
One Vault policy can run a profile that duplicates images, and another policy can run a profile that ejects media. For example, if you create backup media daily and transfer it off site weekly, you can use one policy to create the backups daily and another policy to eject media weekly. If your vault vendor transfers your media weekly, you may prefer to eject media on the day the vault vendor arrives.
