  1. A Few Quick Q's Re New Backup Job

    hello,

    thanks in advance for your patience if these Q's seem silly .

    all i want to do is basically modify the current backup job to not include
    some directories and a certain file type... after searching these
    discussions, i discovered that i can't simply modify the existing job - i
    need to submit a new one.

    i was going to submit the new backup job using the windows client... but
    beforehand, i checked to see if the Options in the windows client matched
    the Options in the Netware Client... as i immediately saw a descrepancy, i
    didn't look at all the options, but under Options-->Backup, "Quick Check
    After Backup" was checked in the Netware Client, but not in the windows
    client.

    1. why don't they match? should i be concerned?

    2. since they don't match, i should use the Netware Client to configure and
    submit the new backup job, right?

    3. i want to somehow retain the existing job for possible use later- how can
    i do that? maybe just place it on Hold in the Netware Job Manager? is
    there a better way?

    3a. if i simply place it on Hold, what happens when i restart the Netware
    server? will the job previously placed on Hold remain on Hold, or will it
    want to start up normally? (typically, BE starts automatically, and all i
    have to do is log in through BE in to enable the backup job).

    thanks!

    relevant specs.:
    Netware 5.00g (unsure what SP level...)
    BackupExec 8.5 for Netware
    BE Client running on Win2K SP4 workstation

    oh - i forgot to ask:

    is there any way to create a backup selection set in the windows client, and
    then use it in the Netware Client?

    can i simply copy the .BKS file stored on the client workstation to the
    Netware server, and if so, what directory do i put it in?

    thanks again!

  3. Re: A Few Quick Q's Re New Backup Job

    ooh, my head hurts!

    i just noticed something else: when i look at the current existing job
    details in both the Win and Netware Clients, it does not appear that a Quick
    Check is done ("Quick Check" is not checked in the dialog box in the Win
    Client, and the message box in the Netware Client does not list that a Quick
    Check will be done).

    please understand that i am not particularly concerned about "Quick Check" -
    i'm only using that as an example since i noticed the descrepancy described
    in my original post...

    i just want to make sure that the new backup job is EXACTLY the same as the
    existing one, with the exception of the excludes that i will set up.

    thanks again for your patience!
