Name convention for Volume pools

Created: 20 Nov 2012 • Updated: 11 Jan 2013 | 3 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.


I am a new user of netbackup.

I have read the netbackup manual for several name conventions for volume pools.

If possible, please share your current name convention for volume pools so I can reference.

Or, give me any advices for this.

I believe sometimes best learning is from best example.

Thanks in advance.

Just found the docu below from Symantec.

About naming conventions for volume pools and groupsHow you name pools and groups can help you (and others) organize and more easily identify media if you have to recover data after a disaster.

Use the conventions as follows:

•For volume pools, try to identify the purpose or data in the pools. For example, Vaulted_Payroll, Vaulted_CustomerDB, 1_month_vault, and 7_year_vault are descriptive volume pool names.

•For Vault catalog backups, use an easily identified name for the catalog volume pool (such as Vault_Catalog_Backups).

•For off-site volume groups, use names that indicate the physical location of the data, such as offsite_volume_group
