Creating an On-Demand Backup Set

You can create an On Demand backup set so that you can back up content defined in a directive file each time you perform a backup operation.

Note: After an On Demand backup set is created, it cannot be changed into a traditional backup set.

Before You Begin

Create a directive file. For information, see Creating a Directive File.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, go to Client Computers > client.
  2. Right-click NDMP, and then select All Tasks > New On Demand Backup Set.

    The Create New Backup Set dialog box appears.

  3. In the New Backup Set Name box, type a name (up to 32 characters).
  4. Click OK.
