Managing IBM i File System Backup Sets

When you create a new IBM i file system client, a default backup set is created automatically with 7 pre-defined subclients, which manage 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.

Procedure

  1. From the navigation pane, click Administrators > Servers > server > File System. 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.

Result

The software creates the backup set.

What to Do Next

Create subclients for the data that you want to protect.
