I'm running Netbackup 7.7.3 on Solaris and I need to clone a single backup, as given by a jobid, to new media with a much longer retention. The current backup is on disk and will only stick around for two weeks. So how can I copy/clone/vault the data backed up by a specific job, to new media?
I've got the jobid, got the policy it's associated with, even have the MediaID that it's been written too. I just don't know the process for getting it all copied to new media.
You need to know the backup id you want to duplicate....
You can do it via CLI (bpduplicate commnad) or via JAVA GUI - catalog pane, duplicate ;)
Your best friends are NBU commands reference guide and NBU admin guide I ;) which can be found here
whole documentation and these two in particular:
You duplicate via backupid not jobid, so you will need the backupid.
bpduplicate -dstunit gpk630r2f-19-hcart2-robot-tld-1 -dp NetBackup -backupid gpk630r2f-18_1538943996 -rl 8
dstunit is the destination storage unit (use bpstulist to list available)
dp is the destination volume pool to use (not needed if you duplicate to disk)
-rl is the retention level to use (bpretlevel will list available retention levels)
