policy throttling

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Is there a way in Netbackup 7.5.0.5 to policy throttling?

I have to duplicate some info backup up on a NAS that is offsite.

I need to duplicate the data to tape for a couple of reason and I am trying to figure out the best way to so this.

I was thinking if I could policy throttling this backup so durning the day it has low bandwith, and then at night I can give it 75% of the line so we are not taking over the network.  

The plant this NSA is at runs 3 shifts but at night most everyone there is a line worker so WAN speed isn't a issue.  

Master/Media is a Windows 2008 running netbackup 7.5.0.5.  

Any thoughs or help would be great.

Thanks

You can limit the IP bandwidth a client used but I am afraid it isn't variable. But here what I could dig up:

Documentation: Is there a way to throttle or limit VERITAS NetBackup (tm) so it will not use all available bandwidth on the network?

Bandwidth properties

A old connect thread about bandwidth limiting:

Assumption is the mother of all mess ups.
