I want to configure the flash backup policy for linux servers.
In backup selection i need to take local partion of the server.
my question is in the policy attribute why we need to select the option perfrom off-host backup as alternate client. in this scenario how the snap shot creates wither it creates in the same server of local disk and the pushes to media or it creates the snap shot on the media server.
Please check point 7 and 8 in this Technote - https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.000071880
To shift backup I/O to an alternate client, or to a NetBackup media server or third-party copy device (UNIX clients only), select Perform off-host backup.
