Copy Alternate Cycle Jobs to Two Different Selective Copies

If you want to copy alternate cycle jobs (that is one odd and one even) to different copies, configure two selective copies as follows.

Procedure

  • Configure the first selective copy with First Full Backup.
    1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Policies | Storage Policy | storage policy.
    2. Right-click the selective copy, and then click the Properties.
    3. Click the Selective Copy tab, from the Automatically select Full Backups at frequency list, select Advanced, and then click Advanced.
    4. In the Advanced dialog box, select Every <x> Cycles, specify the value as 2, and then click OK.
    5. Select First Full Backup, and then click OK.
  • Configure the second selective copy with Last Full Backup.
    1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Policies | Storage Policy | storage policy.
    2. Right-click the selective copy, and then click the Properties.
    3. Click the Selective Copy tab, from the Automatically select Full Backups at frequency list, select Advanced, and then click Advanced.
    4. In the Advanced dialog box, select Every <x> Cycles, specify the value as 2, and then click OK.
    5. Select Last Full Backup, and then click OK.

This allows you to copy the alternate cycles jobs to two different selective copies by implementing the mod logic explained in the How does the job selection work with advanced cycle-based criteria?.
