how to program backups in a group efficiently and effectively with emc networker 8.2.4

Regards, Sres: I have several Oracle backups configured with Emc Networker and there is one of them that I have doubts about getting it programmed: Full Backup: Day [Friday to Saturday] Time: 18:30 Backup Archives: Day [Sunday to Thursday] Time [00/04/08/12/16/20 / 24:00] Day [Friday] Time [00:00 / 04:00 / 08:00 / 12:00 / 16:00] Day [Saturday] Time [08:00 / 12:00 / 16:00 / 20: 00 / 24:00] Setting up the groups for the full backups and archives go well with the exception of this: Day [Friday] Time [00:00 / 04:00 / 08:00 / 12:00 / 16:00] Well I do not find in the properties of the advanced group any option that restricts until 4:00 pm as the last backup archive. You could assist me in how to give an efficient and effective solution for the programming of the respective one. I send the antiquity thanks for the assistance. WILURA

Such is a bit more complicated. A 'daily' group (interval 24hrs) will start every day at the same time. You need to setup an appropriate schedule which you then select for either the client or the group. For a weekly schedule, define the level (full) for the days you want to run + (skip). For a group with an interval less than 24hrs you cannot define an 'active period' - it will run whenever the interval has been scheduled. If you want to do such, you must run the savegrp command from a script which will be triggered by a cron job/task scheduler.

Sorry - I forgot to advise the NW solution for your problem in case you might not have realized already: - Create the appropriate groups for a daily/24hr schedule, starting at the appropriate times, like 08:00, 12:00, 12:00 etc May I suggest that you use self describing names as you will have multiple groups starting at the same time. - Define the appropriate schedule (for the client or for the group) - Make you client a member of the appropriate groups.
