what will "bpplschedrep" hit?

NBU 7.6.0.3

i have a requirement to backup SQL transaction logs every 15 minutes. problem is, in the backup policies "Frequency" the lowest that can be selected is an hour.

so i found this links:

https://vox.veritas.com/t5/NetBackup/Any-good-read-Explanation-on-NBU-schedulers-frequency-based/m-p...

https://vox.veritas.com/t5/NetBackup/Frequency-Schedule-in-Minutes-Besides-using-the-bpplschedrep/m-...

but they are rather old. so i'm wondering if the solution provided still holds today? specially using "bpplschedrep" will it affect only the current policy or ALL my policy?

Still valid.

You provide the policy & schedule to the command & the -freq option (with duration in seconds)

You may still need to take care that this does not change if you subsequently modify the schedule again via the GUI?

hi,

seems that's cumbersome to maintain.

i have an idea. if i know the CLI command to trigger a backup policy, can i create a cronjob instead?

Now can *I* say "seems that's cumbersome to maintain" ? Smiley Tongue

I suppose whatever you find easier to maintain - personally I would prefer all my jobs to be run centrally, with no outside controlled schedule (e.g. cron), but that *is* a personal preferrence.

Once you've run bpplschedrep to get it to the correct number of seconds then that's it, unless you amend the schedule in the future via the GUI & you would, potentially, have to run the command again ......

 IDEALLY the granularity should be there in the first place.
