Quiescing a backup policy

Before modifying an active backup policy, you must place the policy in a quiesced state. A policy is temporarily disabled when it is placed in a quiesced state.

In the Available Policies table, select the policy, and click Quiesce.
A “Quiesced” policy remains in that state until you open and save the policy again. When you save the policy, all the policy jobs are scheduled again.

Deleting a backup policy

If a backup policy is no longer required, you can delete it from the database.

In the Available Policies table, select the policy that you want to delete, and click Remove.


Restoring data

About restoring data

Restore refers to reconstructing all or part of a system from a backup.

You can perform a restore job for various reasons, such as the following:

The NetVault Backup plug-ins integrate with the native APIs to restore and recover application-specific data from backups. Depending on the application type, these plug-ins provide different methods and options to restore data.

In general, NetVault Backup offers the following restore features:

To restore data, you need to create and submit a restore job. You can create a restore job definition from the Create Restore Job link in the Navigation pane.

A restore job definition includes the following components:

These components are stored in NetVault Backup Sets. For more information about NetVault Backup Sets, see About NetVault Backup Sets.

Each restore job has a Job ID number and a Job Name. The Job ID number is an auto-generated number. The Job Name is a user‑defined string that allows you to easily identify the job when monitoring its progress or viewing the job logs.
