Netbackup-How to make full copy have another retention.
I have requirement to enable longer retention on my full backup copy, Not sure did netbackup have this function.
Currently, my client backup will firstly backup into storage unit with following retention.
Full backup 2 week and Incremental backup 1 week.
But due to certain extend, i need to have more longer retention for my full backup and i not able to have more storage space for my storage unit, hence i need to have my Full backup copy to other medium(tape).
Any method i can used to copy over the Full backup copy from storage unit to tape without interrupt any of client operation. And the Full backup copy in storage unit not not purge before data is fully copy into media(for longer retention). I need to ensure there is always latest 2 week of data(full and incr) keep in storage unit for data recovery if required.
By the way, i was come accross SLP option for Netbackup, can i know how it function, can extended rule apply on this function(keep latest 2 week data in primary storage unit, copy only the full backup copy to tape and data in storage unit will not purge/delete unit this copy(from storage unit to tape) is fully completed.
