Configuring a schedule for daily file level backup in HP Data Protector

0

Assuming you want to backup your files from Monday to Friday as incremental backup at 20:00 hours and a full backup on Saturday at 14:00 hours and the first full backup of the month will be the monthly backup for the past month here´s how you can configure it w/o changing anything after this adjustment.

Create a file level backup job for all your systems as you want to but leave the schedule unconfigured. Name them e.g. Daily, Weekly, Monthly and Yearly so that you´ll be able to distinguish your different jobs.

There´s an easy way to achive this by creating one job and copy this job afterwards.

The config files for the Schedules are in following folders:

from Windows 2008 on:
%ProgramData%\OmniBack\Config\server\Schedules or %ProgramData%\OmniBack\Config\server\Barschedules

Previous Windows systems:
Data_Protector_home\Config\server\Schedules or Data_Protector_home\Config\server\Barschedules

Linux:
etc/opt/omni/server/schedules or /etc/opt/omni/server/barschedules

Failure with HP DataProtector 7.0.1 Agent for MaxDB using 3.x Linux Kernel

0

After updating to DP 7.00.100 we´ve tried to use the determined kernel version (3.xx) for our SLES 11 servers. The disk agent works fine but as we tried to backup our MaxDB database the backup aborted and we weren´t able to backup the database. After changing the used kernel inside the cell_info file to a previous used (2.5xxx) and working entry we were able to backup the database.

Session hangs in DataProtector

0

In some cases your backup job may hang in HP DataProtector.

Here are some steps to solve this issue:

1. Make sure no backup sessions are running

2. Start task manager

3. Sort processes by name

4. Kill bsm.exe

Now close and re-open your DataProtector GUI. There shouldn´t be any sessions in the monitor view.

If there still is a running backup job in your “Internal database -> Sessions” view open a command prompt and enter the following command:

omnidbutil -clear

and hit enter.

After this the session should be displayed as aborted or failed.

0
