Since 7.6: if the server is part of active group(with furture scheduled) backup then, bootstrap is backed up ONLY when group backup is done. Index is also backed up when backing up with server initiated. When backup is fu ll, index backup level=full; incr= 9; leveln=leveln GUI: NMC CLI: savegrp Server initiated backup process: 1.

SSID + Clone id: identify the backup Tape: Working of networker with tape 1. Labelling: first 32-bits header with EOF together repeated 1 time. then a sec ond EOF is done after the 2nd header. This info is added to mmdb6> resdb 2 EOF's are repeated as file marks to help CFI Networker has its unique header, and hence the tape used by other utilities cann ot be read with networker. Utility can be used to read and determine if this is the condition: t_reader Works well with unix Client resource attributs: File inactivity threshold: default [0]to check for files that are not changed fo r long time(usefull when multiple full backup). Error related: termination reque st was send to job x as requested;Reason given was 'inactive' " File inactivity alert threshold : default [0] checks how many files should trigg er this type of alert Scheduled backups: whether the client can do scheduled backup Check point restart: 7.6 SP1 or later Before 7.6 : Failed backup would need to restart the particular save set(eg: if C was complete and D was when it crashed= C is recoverable, but D backup save se t needs to be completetly restarted). Using CPR: backup starts to the save set, when backup fails depending on granura lity( Files or Dirs) the required data doesnt need to be backed up again and is recoverable.

Pools may have optional criteri a to restrict certian types of backup only to a particular pool. 1. Specify the clients[first creating 'label template resource'--- volumes would be named accordingly. if none is specied a label template is created automatica lly with same name.001-999 2. Specify particular save sets ex: index: bootstrap would make sure bootstrap and index backup from all clients go to particular poo l 3. level: particular levels that should go to this media. Browse and retention policies on media policy on pool has larger policy then the clinet Clinet associates with Groups depending on different save sets, client can be cr eated as a different instance and assocaite with groups. server compares save set chars to the set of arrs of each pool, first checking G roup, then Clinet, save set, then level If no space is available in pool, it would check for new media or recycle in poo l. if not, depeding on 'recycle to other media pools' and 'recycle from other media pols' it would check for recyclable/expired tapes in other pools if not- need to have AMM(auto media mgmt)- to automatically lable newly availabl e device. then change to 'waiting for media' NOTE: if backup is being done to a particular pool(on different SN) then need to ensure that the media pool has one volume on the local N/w Server Clone Pools/Cloning: 1. Index are not saved 2. goes only to clone changes 3. Retention policies are applied to clinet or media pool for cloning Backup Trouleshooting: Check alerts in monitoring if config changes are necessary- backup the res try to test with new group

Start all services. MMRECOV needs ALL S ERVICES STARTED Ensure a bootstrap id is noted(present in events/daemon.raw/scanner -B)(mminfo B); bootstrap device needs to be local # mmrecov Provide the device name, SSID Now recover would overwrite mm and create res.R, rename it to res Start services, Inventory nsrjb -I Incase the bootstrap is not latest, mark volumes as scan needed. Then once done, scan and populate the entries( delete from index and mm , load w ithout mount, scanner -i) This would popolute all entries for volume post the boostrap CFI: If you choose not to recover a client s index, you must use nsrck to create a n empty CFI prior to the next backup of the client: nsrck client_name To recovery CFIs nsrck -L7 Firewall: Service Ports(Default) : 7937-9936 if v <= 7.5 : 7937 and 7938 mandate if v => 7.6 : 7937 mandate Note that nsrexecd on every type of NetWorker host will always try to listen on ports 7937 and 7938.
