Configuring an additional bp.conf file

The administrator can add options to the NetBackup bp.conf file on the NetBackup master server. The administrator can create an additional bp.conf file in the home directory of the Informix user's account used for the backup or restore.

Before you use NetBackup for Informix, you can create a bp.conf file in the home directory of the Informix user's account used for the backup on the NetBackup client. The path to this directory can be equal to the value of the $INFORMIXDIR variable.

For example, if the home directory is /informix, the path is as follows:

/informix/bp.conf

After you create a bp.conf file in the Informix home directory, add the following options to the file and replace the italicized text with information that pertains to the client:

BPBACKUP_POLICY=informix_policy
BPBACKUP_SCHED=informix_sched
SERVER=server_name
CLIENT_READ_TIMEOUT=1800

The variables are as follows:

informix policy

The name of the Informix-ON-Bar policy that was configured in the backup policy.

See About configuring a backup policy for an Informix database

informix_sched

The schedule name for the informix_policy. By default, it is Default-Application-Backup.

server_name

The name of the NetBackup master server.

NetBackup uses the bp.conf file in the Informix user's home directory only for backups and restores initiated by this Informix user.
