How to backup a single saveset at a specific level

Jump to solution

Hi,

we are running NetWorker 9.1.1.7. Last weekend one of the full backups failed. Yet we do not want to rerun the complete Job or even just the failed / incomplete savesets. But we are interested to backup some savesets at level full.

Any idea, how to do that?

hschulte,

        If you want the full backup of certain savesets only why dont you just add a client instance with the required savesets defined and add them to an adhoc workflow to take a full backup.

Usually you just have to restart a workflow. However, the restart interval will most likely have timed out.

The easiest way to do that is to run a full client backup form the command line:

  nsrworkflow -p <policy> -w <workflow> -c <client> -A "'backup' -l full"

Ok, but this will start the complete client rather than a single saveset.

Correct. You cannot define a specific save set from the command line.

However, if you restart a failed workflow, it will only backup the save set which have not finished successfully.

But to make this happen the restart interval must not have passed.

Depends what you exactly mean under save set here (drive, folder, whatever).... I would perhaps try slightly different approach here and use save command from client and exploit -t option (see manual for save command).
