Windows 2003 cluster update (how to test a clustered backup setup)
I ran the backups for the cluster setup (backups ran however not sure if it works)
Policy 1 >>>pagicianqa_clstr_physical Backup seems to have completed successfully
In the client selection I put the following full physical node names the backup selection for these are c:\ and system state.
pagicianq1.my.company.com >>>completed successfully
pagicianq2.my.company.com >>>completed successfully
I also have a third client >>> pagicianqa_cluster (not sure why I put that) I think that’s what I put as the client name when I was creating the policy. This is getting a netbackup code of (48) client hostname could not be found, which is correct since there is no client with that name so I guess I can delete that client name.
Feel free to ask questions, as I am not sure if this is correct or not.
Policy 2 clstr_pagicianq1 (which backups up the shared drives) >>> H:\ Q:\
UPDATE >>I just found out that the C:\ and D:\ drives are the physical drives so I removed them from backup policy 2 (the one that backups up the shared rescources). I also removed the I: drive the T: drive, E: drive, F: drive and the G:drive (per admin instructions)
So the backup selections for the shared/resources are the H:\ Q:\
I will add the D:\ to the policy 1>>pagicianqa_clstr_physical and remove it from policy 2>> clstr_pagicianq1. Is this going to be an issue now that I didn’t originally have this in place?
Fyi – both these policies/backups started at midnight could that be an issue? Also how do we test this cluster setup to see if it works/worked!
Thanks in advance!
