Managing OpenVMS File System Backup Sets

When you create a new file system client, a default backup set is created automatically, which manages backup and restore operations for the client.

You can create additional backup sets to provide a separate administration point for a specific group of subclients.


  1. You can add a backup set from the server details page or the agent details page.

    • Server details: From the navigation pane, click Servers > server, in the Actions column for the agent, click the action button action_button, and then click Add backup set.

    • Agent details: From the navigation pane, click Servers > server > agent. Then, in the upper-right of the page, click Add backup set.

      The Create New Backup Set dialog box appears.

  2. In the Backup Set Name box, type the backup set name.

  3. From the Plan list, select the plan that the software uses to protect the data.

  4. To make the backup set the default, select the Make this the default backupset check box.

  5. Click OK.


The software creates the backup set.
