netbackup retry attempt

When Netbackup retries a backup, it is creating a new job.   I was of the impression that a retry would just activate the ATTEMPT counter, and use the same job.   This is inflating our SLA in that we are being charged for each time the backup retries because they are seperatre jobs   Is there a way to make NBU retry the backup within the same job ?

what are the values in Master

what are the values in Master server --> Host properties--> Global attributes

for Job retry delay & Schedule Backup attempts

also value set for "Move backup job from incompleate to Done state" from  Master server --> Host properties--> clean up

these 2 settings should describe the reason behind the behaiver you are seeing..

 

ex:- schedule backup attempts are set to 3 tries in 12 hours and clean is set to 3 hours

every 3 hours previous incompleate job will move to done state and as per the retry setting new job will start.

if you would like to keep the single job for all attempts you may need to chage the cleanup time equal to retry attemtps...
