How to create basic backup policy from Backup Exec System Recovery 2010 Management Solution and apply to the client Servers.


Solution



To create a basic backup policy follow the steps listed below: 

      On the Backup Exec System Recovery 2010 Management Solution Manage Tasks tab, expand the Backup Policies list in the left pane.  In the left pane, select the type of recovery point that you want the backup policy to create. 

  

 

 Recovery Point Set:

 

Schedule a base recovery point with additional recovery points that contain only incremental changes that were made to the computer since the previous recovery point.

 

Incremental recovery points are created faster than the base recovery point. They also use less storage space than an independent recovery point.

(Note: You can only have one recovery point set defined for each drive. The Recovery Point Set option is not available if you have already assigned a selected drive to an existing backup and specified Recovery Point Set as the recovery point type. This option is also unavailable if you select an unmounted drive that cannot be part of a recovery point set.)

 

1.     In the middle pane, click Create on the toolbar.

2.     In the Name text field, type a descriptive name for the new backup policy.

3.     In the Drives field, click the hyperlink.

4.     Do one of the following, and then click Apply :

a.     Click All drives on selected computers to protect all drives, including those that are hidden or unmounted, that exist on the client computers.

b.     If you are defining a backup policy that back up certain drives letters on the selected client computer, click By Drive, and then select the drive letters that you want.

c.     Click Apply

5.     Select the backup destination in the Destinations: drop down, complete the other options and click Save Changes

 

 

 Independent Recovery Point

 

             Creates a complete, independent copy of the drives that you select. This backup type typically requires more storage space, especially if you run the backup

 

1.     In the middle pane, click Create on the toolbar.

2.     In the Name text field, type a descriptive name for the new backup policy.

3.     In the Drives field, click the hyperlink.

4.     Do one of the following, and then click Apply:

               a.     Click All drives on selected computers to protect all drives, including those that are hidden or unmounted, that exist on the client computers.

               b.     If you are defining a backup policy that backs up certain drive letters on the selected client computers, click By Drive Letter, and then select the drive letters that you want.

               c.     Click  Apply.

5.     Select the backup destination in the Destinations: drop down, complete the other options and click Save Changes.
