NetVault Plug-in for Microsoft 365 13.1 - User Guide

Adding patterns to use for exclusion and inclusion

From the backup selection tree, you can create and store patterns of mailboxes, mailbox folders, users, sites, and teams that you want to include and exclude for all selected user mailboxes that you back up. When you specify patterns to exclude or include, or both, the plug-in stores them with a Backup Selection Set. When you submit a backup job, you can select the set with the stored patterns. The plug-in then populates the backup list with mailboxes whose folder names meet the specified inclusion and exclusion patterns. There is no limit to the number of patterns that you can specify. Be aware that the plug-in gives priority to exclusions.

In the Navigation Pane, click Create Backup Job, and click next to the Selections list.
Click Plug‑in for Microsoft 365, and select View Inclusion/Exclusion from the context menu.
The plug-in adds two subnodes, Include Patterns and Exclude Patterns, to the Microsoft 365 node.
Click Exclude Patterns, and then select one of the following options:
In the Enter exclude pattern dialog box, type the pattern to exclude, and click OK.
Click Include Patterns, and then select one of the following options:
In the Enter include pattern dialog box, type the pattern to include, and click OK.
When you are finished, click Save, enter a name in the Create New Set dialog box, and click Save.

Performing backups

A backup using the plug-in includes the steps outlined in the following topics:

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 Full and 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 Administrator’s Guide.

In the Navigation pane, click Create Backup Job.
You can also start the wizard from the Guided Configuration link. In the Navigation pane, click Guided Configuration. On the NetVault Configuration Wizard page, click Create backup jobs.
In Job Name, specify a name for the job.
Next to the Selections list, click .
In the list of plug-ins, open Plug‑in for Microsoft 365, open the tenant node, and complete the applicable following actions:
If you are creating a backup job for Azure AD, select the AzureAD node for users, groups, or service principals.
Click Save, enter a name in the Create New Set dialog box, and click Save.

Setting backup options

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

As of release 13.1, granular restore is available for all aspects of Microsoft 365.

TIP: To use an existing set, in the Plugin Options list, select the set that you want to use.
Next to the Plugin Options list, click .
NOTE: To prevent a pop-up from appearing and causing the WebUI to be unresponsive, before creating the new plug-in set, click Edit and save the existing default plug-in options, and then click the + icon.
In the Backup Type section, select the applicable option:
Full Backup: To perform a complete backup of the selected mailbox — including its folders, messages, mailbox settings, and rules — or the selected OneDrive or Teams node, select this option.
Incremental Backup: To back up all data changed in the selected mailbox, OneDrive, or Teams node since the last occurrence of a Full or Incremental Backup, select this option.
In the Additional Options section, if you want to use parallel streams to increase the speed of backup jobs, optionally select Enable multi-streaming and then indicate the number of streams.
If you are setting up a backup job for Outlook, in the Outlook Options section, select the applicable options:
Enable Restartable backup: If you want to be able to pause a backup and have it resume from the point at which it was stopped, select this option.
Exclude attachments in backup: If you want to exclude attachments and inline images from messages, select this option.
Exclude Calendar backup: If you want to exclude calendars, select this option.
In Set Name, specify a name for the set, and click Save.
