NetVault Backup Plug-in for Domino 4.4 - User Guide

Selecting data for a backup

You must use sets — Backup Selection Set, Backup Options Set, Schedule Set, Target Set, and Advanced Options Set — to create a backup job.

Backup Selection Sets are essential for Incremental Backups. Create the Backup Selection Set during a Full Backup, and use it for Incremental Backups. The backup job reports an error if you do not use a Selection Set for the Incremental Backup. For more information, see the Quest NetVault Backup Administrator’s Guide.

Directory Link: A Directory Link is used to access a specific directory that contains Domino Database files.
Database Link: A Database Link is used to access a specific database.
Multiple server databases and template files can share a display name, for example, two template files could be named Template_1. When navigating the selection tree to include items for a backup, ensure that the applicable item is selected. This process can be completed by checking the server database and template-file structure on the Domino Server.
TIP: To use an existing set, click Create Backup Job, and select the set from the Selections list.

Setting backup options

The next step involves creating the Backup Options Set or selecting an existing one.

TIP: To use an existing set, in the Plugin Options list, select the set that you want to use.
1
Next to the Plugin Options list, click Create New.
Backup Type: Select the Full Backup option. For details, see Available backup types.
Number of Retries: Enter or select the number of times that the plug-in should try to back up a database or file that is in use by a different process.
Plug‑in for Domino cannot back up a database if it is locked by a different process. This issue also applies to the database-compact process. The Number of Retries parameter determines the number of times the Plug‑in for Domino tries to back up a database or Domino file when the initial attempt fails. By default, the Plug‑in for Domino only makes one attempt. This feature applies to a specific file or database; it does not apply to the overall backup job.
Server Data: If you want to include and exclude specific directories, enter the applicable information — use full path names — in these fields. When completing these fields, use the following guidelines:
In the Backup Inclusion List — Directories field, verify that the specified directories are subdirectories of entries listed in the Backup Exclusion List — Directories field; otherwise, the directory is ignored. For example, you can exclude c:\domino_data\site1 and include c:\domino_data\site1\marketing.
A file or database selected for backup is ignored if it is contained in a directory that is specified in the Backup Exclusion List — Directories field. The file or database must reside in a subdirectory, and that subdirectory must be listed in the Backup Inclusion List — Directories field.
Incomplete backup of ALL items selected: To override what action the plug-in should take if an individual job fails to back up all applicable items, select one of the following:
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.
3
Click Save to save the set.
4
In the Create New Set dialog box, specify a name for the set, and click Save.

Finalizing and submitting the job

1
Use the Schedule, Target Storage, and Advanced Options lists to configure any additional required options.
2
Click Save or Save & Submit, whichever is applicable.
TIP: To run a job that you have already created and saved, select Manage Job Definitions in the Navigation pane, select the applicable job, and click Run Now.
You can monitor progress on the Job Status page and view the logs on the View Logs page. For more information, see the Quest NetVault Backup Administrator’s Guide.

Performing Incremental Backups

IMPORTANT: If the Database Instance Identification (DB-IID) of any selected database changes after the initial Full Backup, perform a Full Backup before running any Incremental Backups. Otherwise, the data might not be recoverable.

If you create a mailbox after performing a Full Backup, it is not backed up as part of an Incremental Backup until a different Full Backup is performed that includes the new mailbox.
2
In Job Name, specify a name for the job.
3
In the Selections list, select the Backup Selections Set that was used to perform the Full Backup.
