Creating a User-Defined Subclient to Backup Specific Databases

If you want to back up groups of specific databases, you can do so by creating a user-defined subclient containing any number of databases that exist within the instance. This is useful if you want to back up a subset of databases at certain times or with a particular frequency.

If you want to divide your backups into smaller groups, you can do so by creating user-defined subclients using the following steps:

  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client> | Sybase iDataAgent.
  2. Right-click the <Instance>, point to All Tasks, and then click New Subclient.

  3. In the Subclient Name box, type the subclient name.
  4. Click the Content tab.
  5. Click Configure.
  6. Click Discover to discover the Sybase databases.
  7. Click the Subclient Name column adjacent to the existing databases, and then select the desired subclient from the drop-down list.

    Repeat this step to assign the available databases to the user-defined subclient.

  8. Click OK.

  9. Click the Storage Device tab.
  10. In the Storage Policy box, select the storage policy.
  11. Click OK.
