Netbackup client not being backuped because of exceeding backup window

Posted in Netbackup with tags , on June 25, 2011 by uniekdevries

When you add a Netbackup client to a Netbackup policy be aware of the fact thas this not always means the server will be backuped. The reason for that is that the backupwindow might have been closed before all the clients have been backuped. The policy does not keep a record what clients didn’t get backuped during the last backupsession.
When the backupwindow reopens, the policy begins to backup client A instead of the client where he left of. Therefore make sure that the backup window matches the the total number of clients in the policy.
