Netbackup NDMP For NetApp Incremental and full backups
I have an issue for a system that I inherited where incremental NDMP backups are running as full backups everyday.
the backup is configured to send the command "BASE_DATE=0" so that incremental backups are enabled.
I can see a list of the backup times and level in the file /etc/dumpdates.
I'm trying to figure out what I should be doing to run a full backup one time on sunday and an incremental everyday for 6 days.
so here is my understanding, a full backup with BASE_DATE=0 will perform a full dump and set this variable to enable incremental backups which are then controlled via either the /etc/dumpdates or the value of the DUMP_DATE.
but then what? what is the best way of controlling this via either modifying /etc/dumpdates.or controlling the variables?
