NetVault Backup Plug-in for Domino 4.4 - User Guide

Configuring default settings

The plug-in lets you set default options for backup and restore jobs. You can override these options on a per-job basis.

1
In the Navigation Pane, click Create Backup Job, and click Create New next to the Selections list.
3
From the Actions list, select Configure.
NOTE: If you are running a Windows OS, the appropriate information is displayed in the Configure dialog box by default — except the Lotus Domino User Domain name, which you must enter, if necessary. Quest strongly recommends that you review the default values for these parameters to ensure their accuracy.
Lotus Domino Installation Directory: Enter the full path to the Domino installation directory. On Windows, this path is displayed by default.
Lotus Domino Data Directory: Enter the full path to the directory where the Domino Databases are stored. On Windows, this path is displayed by default.
Lotus Domino Username: The Plug‑in for Domino requires a host login account — OS user account — to access the data on the Domino Server for backups. Depending on the OS in use, the following preconfigured user account is displayed in this field:
Windows: On Windows, “Administrator” is displayed by default.
Linux and UNIX: On Linux and UNIX, “notes” is displayed by default if the default user name was not changed during Domino installation and Domino Server is running from this account. Otherwise, the Plug‑in for Domino does not preconfigure a default user. If the box is blank, configure a valid user account for the plug-in’s use.
Lotus Domino User Domain (Windows)/User Group (Linux/UNIX): Depending on the OS, provide the User Domain or User Group:
Windows: If the NetVault Backup Server and the Domino Server belong to different Windows Domains, enter the Windows Domain for the Domino Server. This parameter is optional.
Linux or UNIX: Enter the user group to which the configured user belongs. If the Domino Server is running from this account, the preconfigured user group is notes.
Tmp Directory for Recovery: Enter the path to a temporary directory on the Plug‑in for Domino host. The plug-in uses this directory to store data temporarily when relocating a database as part of the restore operation. When the entire database is restored, the data is moved to the data directory on the target server and the temporary directory is emptied.
Location of file notes.ini: Enter the full path to the Domino Server configuration file, “notes.ini.”
Name of *.ini file: Enter the filename of the initialization file. The default name of the initialization file on Windows, Linux, and UNIX is “notes.ini.”
Location of file server.id: Enter the path to the Domino Server’s ID file, “server.id.
Location of file cert.id: Enter the path to the Domino Domain Certifier ID file, “cert.id.
Location of file mail.box: Enter the path to the Domino Outbox Mail Router file, “mail.box.
Location of User’s Mail: Enter the path to the directory where the user email data is stored.
Location of file log.nsf: Enter the path to the Domino Log Database, “log.nsf.
Location of file names.nsf: Enter the path to the Domino Domain directory, “names.nsf.
Logs Directory: Enter the path to the directory where the log files are stored.
Logs ControlFile: Enter the name of the file acting as the logs control file.
Lotus DAOS Directory: Available with Domino 8.5, Domino Attachment and Object Service (DAOS) consolidates storage of attachments in a separate DAOS repository. DASO also reduces disk space usage by allowing single-instance storage for attachments present in multiple mails.
IMPORTANT: In a standard database, you only have to back up the “.nsf” file because the attachments are stored inside this file. With DAOS enabled, the “.nsf” file only contains a reference to the attachment. In this environment, also back up the files in the DAOS repository.
Ignore Circular Log Warnings in Full Backups: As described in Setting up Transactional logging on the Domino Server, Quest strongly recommends that you enable Archive logging. If you must use Circular logging and you do not want NetVault Backup to generate Circular logging warnings during Full Backups, select this option.
Incomplete backup of ALL items selected: The plug-in lets you specify what action a backup job should take if it is unable to back up all the selected items. Consider the following example:
Complete with Warnings — Saveset Retained: The job returns a status of “Backup Completed with warnings” and a backup saveset is created that includes the items that were successfully backed up.
Complete without Warnings — Saveset Retained: The job completes and returns a status of “Backup Completed.” The errors are logged in the NetVault Backup binary logs and ignored on the Job Status page. A backup saveset is created that includes the items that were backed up.
Fail — Saveset Retained: The job returns a status of “Backup Failed.” However, a backup saveset is generated that includes the items that were successfully backed up.
Fail — No Saveset Retained: The job returns a status of “Backup Failed” and no saveset of backed-up objects is kept. That is, even if some of the objects were successfully backed up, the saveset is discarded.

Backing up data

Available backup types

The Plug‑in for Domino offers the following backup types:

Full Backup: This type backs up the full contents of the selected items. Full Backups usually take longer to complete and consume more backup media. A Full Backup serves as the base for future Incremental Backups. A Full Backup of the DAOS repository includes all the existing attachments in the repository.
Incremental Backup: This type backs up the new and changed data written to the Transaction Logs. To use this method, Transactional Logging must be enabled on the Domino Server. For more information, see Setting up Transactional logging on the Domino Server. For a nonlogged database, the Incremental Backup backs up the full contents of the database. When a backup job includes both logged and nonlogged databases, the saveset contains the Transaction Logs for the logged databases and the full contents of the nonlogged database.

Performing Full Backups

The Full Backup procedure includes the steps outlined in the following topics:
