  • New storage policy for workstation backups
    Posted: 10-21-2010, 4:47 PM

    I want to create a new storage policy just for workstation backups.

    Is it possible to have a storage policy that keeps a set number of good backups. Not based on number of days.

    Because if I say keep the backup for 14 days and the person is offline for 2 weeks. All their backups would be gone.

    We are using the new workstation client from V9 with source dedupe backing up to disk.

     

    thanks,jb

    retention includes cycles as well. cycles represents when a full runs. so a backup retention of 1 c 2 d with a cycle equating to a full running every 14 days would be 28 days worth of retention and the old full only gets removed when the new one comes in...isnt retention fun?

    play with the numbers on the attached sheet to get a better idea

    Awsome, thank you very much.

    I think I can figure this out and create the new storage policy.

    Quick question about storage policies.

    When I create the new policy can it use the same disk pool I have for my existing B2D storage policy?

    That would be fine.

    ok, I started to create the new storage policy and pointed it to the current disk storage pool. but i wants me to create a new dedupe database.

    I'd like to share the dedupe across my current storage policy.

    do I need to create a global dedupe policy to link the two DB's even though they will all be using the same media agent to host the dedupe database?

    each deduped SP would have its own database.
