Frequency Schedule in Minutes (Besides using the bpplschedrep command)

I have a need to initiate a backup every 5 minutes (SQL Transaction Logs).  The GUI can go as low as 1 hour.  Besides using the bpplschedrep command, is there any way to modify the GUI to permit this?

You could setup a cron or scheduled task on the master server, or better yet, on the client (you'd need to setup a User schedule in a policy for it).

You must get a TON of data to need to have to run TRX logs every 5 minutes; that's crazy frequent.

Re: Frequency Schedule in Minutes (Besides using the bpplschedrep command)

David,
 
Our DBA's are using a 3rd party utility to backup the SQL Transaction Logs every 10 minutes (yes, we do generate a TON of activity) and we are trying to prove to them the usefulness of using the NetBackup SQL agent to backup and restore the databases.
 
To setup bpplschedrep works fine as long as you do not have to modify the policy (from the GUI perspective, 0 Hours is an invalid value).  However, once a change is made, I just rerun the command script.
 
Thanks again and maybe in NetBackup 6.5, they will allow an interval based on minutes in addition to the other entries.
