What is differnce between open and dup folders created under each SLP?

Created: 01 Feb 2013 | 3 comments

I have created SLP's in NetBackup, but I observed that one under one SLP dup folder is created and in other SLP open folder is created. Can some one please explain when will DUP or OPEN folders created under SLP's?

Path: /usr/openv/netbackup/db/class_internal/<SLP_name>/schedule/

NetBackup version is 7.1.0.4

hi ,

as per my understanding , Open will have the window for SLP how much time it should be active in each day.

, if you could post what you are seeing in DUP, we could probably come to an idea about that..

I am not seeing any difference between those files.

but days file is the one which says about the SLP should be active in each day,

0 is sunday and 6 is saturday.

2nd row 0 is start of the day, and 86400 is end of the day, so it says SLP is active 24hours a day and 7 days a week.

0 0 86400
1 0 86400
2 0 86400
3 0 86400
4 0 86400
5 0 86400
6 0 86400

 

And even SLP function also not changing, for the Open schedule and dup schedule.  

so it might be the two names or approaches for the same function.(  i guess)
