Backing Up Data on the RDS container using NetVault Backup

You must back up data on the RDS container (available on the DR Series systems) using NetVault Backup. Before you can back up data using the RDS protocol, you must create an RDS container on the DR Series system and then add that container as an RDA device on NetVault Backup. For more information see, Adding RDS Devices in NVBU.

To back up data on the RDS container:

3.
In the Selections list, select an existing Backup Selection Set, or click Create New, and select the items that you want to back up. The selection tree is plug-in specific. For more information about selecting data for backups, see the relevant NetVault Backup plug-in user's guide.
4.
In the Plugin Options list, select an existing Backup Options Set, or click Create New, and configure the options that you want to use. These options are plug-in specific. For more information about these options, see the relevant NetVault Backup plug-in user's guide.
5.
In the Schedule list, select an existing Schedule Set, or click Create New, and configure the schedule type and schedule method. For more information about these options, see the NetVault Backup Administrator's Guide. To run the job as soon as it is submitted, use the "Immediate" set.
6.
In the Target Storage list, select an existing Target Set, or click Create New, and configure the target device and media options for the job.
To use a particular DR Series System, select the Specify Device option, and in the list of devices, clear the check marks for the devices that you do not want to use.
For more information about these options, see the NetVault Backup Administrator's Guide..
7.
In the Advanced Options list, select an existing Backup Advanced Options Set, or click Create New, and configure the options that you want to use.
For more information about these options, see the NetVault Backup Administrator's Guide.

The backup job may take a few minutes to complete depending on the amount of data that is backed up. You can view the progress of the backup job by using the Job Management section of NetVault Backup. For more information about using NetVault Backup, see the NetVault Backup Administrator's Guide.

Replicating Data to a RDS Container using NetVault Backup

By using NetVault Backup with the DR Series system, you can run optimized replication jobs. You can replicate data in backup RDS containers on one DR Series system to a target RDS container that is on a different DR Series system. Both the source and target RDS containers must be added to the NetVault Backup server as RDA devices. You can complete optimized replication (or optimized duplication) of backups that you complete using NetVault Backup.

To replicate the data available on the backup RDS container to a target RDS container:

1.
In the NetVault Backup Console, click Backup.
The NetVault Backup window is displayed.
2.
From the Server Location list, select the relevant NetVault Backup server.
3.
In Job Title, enter a relevant job title.
4.
In the Selections tab, select Data Copy and then Backups or Backup Sets, and navigate to the backup job that you want to replicate.
5.
Select the Backup Options tab, under Data Copy Options select the relevant options.
NOTE: Under Copy Type, by default, options are set for Copy and Optimized replication for the DR Series systems.
6.
Select the Schedule tab, under Schedule Options select one of the following:
Immediate — To start the backup operation as soon as you save the current backup job.
Once — To run the backup only once at a scheduled time and date.
Repeating — To run the backup at a scheduled time and date on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
Triggered — To run the backup if the system encounters a pre-specified Trigger name.
7.
Under Job Options select the relevant options.
8.
Select the Source tab, under Device Options select, Specify Device.
10.
Select the Target tab, under Device Options select, Specify Device.
12.
Under Media Options and General Options, select the relevant option.
13.
Select the Advanced Options tab and select the relevant options.
NOTE: For more information on NetVault Backup, see the NetVault Backup Administrator’s Guide.

Restoring data from a DR Series system by using NetVault Backup

The following steps describe how to use NetVault Backup to restore data from a RDS container on a DR Series system.

To restore data from a DR Series system using NetVault Backup:

3.
On the Create Selection Set page, select the items that you want to restore.
4.
Click Edit Plugin Options, and configure the options that you want to use and then click Next.
5.
On the Create Restore Job page, specify a name for the job. Assign a descriptive name that allows you to easily identify the job for monitoring its progress.

Alternatively, click Choose. In the Choose the Target Client dialog box, select the client, and click OK.
7.
In the Schedule list, select an existing Schedule Set, or click Create New, and configure the schedule type and schedule method. To run the job as soon as it is submitted, use the "Immediate" set.
For more information about these options, see the NetVault Backup Administrator's Guide.
8.
In the Source Options list, select an existing Source Set, or click Create New, and configure the source device options. To use a particular DR Series System, select the Specify Device option, and in the list of devices, clear the check marks for the devices that you do not want to use.
For more information about these options, see the NetVault Backup Administrator's Guide.
9.
Click Submit to submit the job for scheduling.
NOTE: For more information about using NetVault Backup, see the NetVault Backup Administrator’s Guide.

Supported DR Series system CLI commands for RDS

NOTE: The --files in the rda --show --file_history command represents replicated files that were processed via the DMA optimized duplication operation. This command displays only up to the last 10 such files. The --name in the rda --show --name command represents the RDA container name. For more information about RDA-related DR Series system CLI commands, see the DR Series System Command Line Reference Guide.
