hi,

could you post the out of below command and also expline something more about your requirement.

I wonder why you need 10 schedules..

bppllist <policyname> -L

so created 10 schedules  and assigned  10 different volume pool

I really *don't* like where this one is going! Why do you need to create yourself so much work? Why do you need sooooo many schedules & volume pools?  NetBackup is your friend let it manage your media ... please?

Your requirements are also a little unclear - you say you need 2x 14 days frequency & yet you've created 10 schedules (== 2x 5 days)?

If you really do need 2 lots of 14 day schedules going to a different volume pool for each then you're going to need a lot of schedules in your policy (28 by my reckoning) with a variation on that proposed in David Chapa's excellent article which Marianne kindly got him to reproduce:

https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/articles/n...

 

Imagine the following 28 schedules in a single policy. They have identical backup windows & their frequencies are 7, 14, 21 & 28 days. Bearing in mind your other requirement for more work, administration & potential troubleshooting, each of these schedules *could* have its own volume pool.

Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday
F - 7 F - 7 F - 7 F - 7 F - 7 F - 7 F - 7
F - 14 F - 14 F - 14 F - 14 F - 14 F - 14 F - 14
F - 21 F - 21 F - 21 F - 21 F - 21 F - 21 F - 21
F - 28 F - 28 F - 28 F - 28 F - 28 F - 28 F - 28

 

The figures *may* need a little refining, but the gist is there. Each day the window opens in each of that particular days schedules.

week 1) This week those with 28 day frequency will run - the longest frequency yet to run.

week 2) This week those with a 21 day frequency will run - F-28's ran 7 days ago & this the longest frequency yet to run

week 3) 14 day frequency backups run

week 4) 7 day frequency.

week 5) back to 28 day frequency.

 

Maybe calendar could work better & be easier to manage, not sure, depends on exactly what it is you want to achieve?

our motive is daily full backup on different media with frequency scheduling.
