Netbackup Catalog Archiving
We currently have a Netbackup catalog that is approximately 1.2tb in size. I think a lot of the catalog space is used by NDMP backups and some of our infinite backups required for legal purposes.
We have never performed any catalog archiving.
We have an AIX master server, and are running Netbackup 22.214.171.124. Due to some ongoing projects, we will be unable to upgrade to Netbackup 7.5 or 7.6 until at least July.
I would like to peform some catalog archiving before we upgrade, and would like some feedback from others. Any best practices, suggestions, or things to avoid would be greatly appreciated!
I have the Symantec documents, but would like to know what kinds of things you personally would suggest or that has helped you either determine what to archive, how to organize it, and other recommendations. Also, if you have any suggestions on better ways to perform backups to reduce catalog space, please let me know.
Thanks for sharring!
