Saveset data is changing

Our customer has a following problem:

He want to backup one directory where several database dumps are located.

The directory is quite big and backup files are generated every day.

The directory name is (for example):  <dir a>, file name is: <filename - date>

The customer want to:

1. backup only the new files.

2. ensure that the backup is ok for a particular date

3. ensure via Networker management interface that the backup for particular

    date is completed. (he can check via NMC interface)

Is there any standard Networker solution for that?

1. Incremental backup is not ok for us because, customer want to

    check which  files which are backed up and it is running fine or not

2. Pre and post script can be working but i think, we have to change the saveset data in every time and this is

    lead complicated scripts

Re: Saveset data is changing

There is no need for special solutions. Here's what i recommend:

  - Specify an incremental automatic backup for this directory as usual.

  - Setup the scheduler to run "savegrp -v -G <groupname>"

        You will see the filenames in the appropriate logs (savegrp.log).

        You may of course also sent email notification to the user.

1) Your explanation for incremental backup is not valid.  Customer can check with nsrinfo which files are backed up for example. Whether it runs fine or not, has nothing to do with backup level.

2) If you use same directory for dump, you don't need to change anything.

And if you create dump with script, you can add save line with -I parameter to file which will contain freshly created dump and do backup as soon as dump has been dumped.  But in essence, you can just create normal backup group and that's it.

Thanks.

Which program uses -l parameter? save -l means: level.

What do you thing?

Re: Saveset data is changing

A level is only valid for automatic backups (initiated by savegrp).

That's not "l" - that's "I" - or capital i.
