Storage Lifecycle Policy dialog box settings
The New Storage Lifecycle Policy dialog box and the Change Storage Lifecycle Policy dialog box contain the following settings.
Table: Storage Lifecycle Policy tab
Storage lifecycle policy name
The Storage lifecycle policy name describes the SLP. The name cannot be modified after the SLP is created.
The Any classification, which is unique to SLPs.defines the level or classification of data that the SLP is allowed to process. The drop-down menu contains all of the defined classifications as well as the
The Any selection indicates to the SLP that it should preserve all images that are submitted, regardless of their data classification. It is available for SLP configuration only and is not available to configure a backup policy.
In an Auto Image Replication configuration where the master server domains run different versions of NetBackup, see the following topic for special considerations:
See About the storage lifecycle policies required for Auto Image Replication.
Theis an optional setting.
One data classification can be assigned to each SLP and applies to all operations in the SLP.
If a data classification is selected (other than Any), the SLP stores only those images from the policies that are set up for that data classification. If no data classification is indicated, the SLP accepts images of any classification or no classification.
The Data classification setting allows the NetBackup administrator to classify data based on relative importance. A classification represents a set of backup requirements. When data must meet different backup requirements, consider assigning different classifications.
For example, email backup data can be assigned to the silver data classification and financial data backup may be assigned to the platinum classification.
A backup policy associates backup data with a data classification. Policy data can be stored only in an SLP with the same data classification.
Once data is backed up in an SLP, the data is managed according to the SLP configuration. The SLP defines what happens to the data from the initial backup until the last copy of the image has expired.
Priority for secondary operations
The Backup and Snapshot operations. Range: 0 (default) to 99999 (highest priority).option is the priority that jobs from secondary operations have in relationship to all other jobs. The priority applies to the jobs that result from all operations except for
For example, you may want to set the Priority for secondary operations for a policy with a gold data classification higher than for a policy with a silver data classification.
The priority of the backup job is set in the backup policy on the Attributes tab.
Use the Add, Change, and Remove buttons to create a list of operations in the SLP. An SLP must contain one or more operations. Multiple operations imply that multiple copies are created.
The list also contains the columns that display information about each operation. Not all columns display by default.
For column descriptions, see the following topic:
Use the arrows to indicate the indentation (or hierarchy) of the source for each copy. One copy can be the source for many other copies.
The Postponed options appear under State of Secondary Operation Processing and refer to the processing of all duplication operations in the SLP.and
The Postponed options apply to duplication operations that create tar-formatted images. For example, those created with bpduplicate. The and Postponed options do not affect the images that are duplicated as a result of OpenStorage optimized duplication, NDMP, or if one or more destination storage units are specified as part of a storage unit group.and
Click this button to see how changes to this SLP can affect the policies that are associated with this SLP. The button generates a report that displays on the Validation Report tab.
This button performs the same validation as the -conflict option performs when used with the nbstl command.
