Note. This document does not describe the x64 paths in the registry, so it's only for 32bits servers. But it is still a good *Netbackup* document

I've just re-read this document - appreciate any (polite) comments and suggestions regarding TSM.

My hope is to speed up backing up of the indices.

Backing up of the VSP's has been done to death, but I've had no such luck with those wonderful indices.

Replace TSM with a superior product? I'd love to but TSM is used for a huge number of other apllications and therefore  considered the one and only backup solution.

Thanks !!

One of the nice new features in EV 10 is that you can close off Index locations like Vault Store partitions.  This gives you a nice advantage of closing them when they start getting too big and keeps your backup times down.

Hi John,

Sorry but that feature is a product of the 64bit Index engine.  Another good reason to get to EV 10!  :)

Cheers,

Cool, thanks Tony. So in this case starting from EV 10, the index location can be backed up separately and does not cause any Archiving job to be stopped during the Index backup ?
