Legal Hold Issue

Created: 12 Sep 2012 | 2 comments

Does anyone have a script to change every schedule, in every policy, to have a retention of inifinity?

No - And I don't think anyone has one ready. Instead of changing the schedules to infinity change the retention level to infinity. In that way the weekly backup is not stored for 3 month anymore but to infinity. 

In Netbackup a retention has a retention level of 0 - 24 (see bpretlevel). 

To change the retention level go to :

GUI -> Host Properties -> Master Servers -> Properties -> Retention Periods.

Remember to save the current layout until legal holds ends.

Assumption is the mother of all mess ups.

if you are on 7.5 why not to use Search feature to apply legal hold on item which requires hold... Let that data be spreaded amongst multiple media , NBU search would take care of it, it would ensure media won't get expired, or would allow to do so by means of bpexpdate (accidentialy.intentionaly)
