Configuring a Subclient for the InterSystems Caché Database Journal Files

When you install the file system Data Agent, the software automatically creates a default backup set.

Create a subclient that includes the drives that contain the InterSystems Caché database journal files.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client > File System > backup_set.
  2. Right-click the backup_set, point to All Tasks, and then click New Subclient.

    The Create New Subclient dialog box is displayed.

  3. On the General tab, specify the following settings:
    1. In the Subclient Name box, type a name.
    2. On the Content tab, click Browse, and then select the volumes that host the InterSystems Caché journal files and then click Add.

      Note: If you use the default settings for a UNIX installation, the journal files are located in the /intersystems/prd* directory.

  4. On the Storage Device tab, in the Storage Policy list, click a storage policy name.
  5. Click Advanced.

    The Advanced Subclient Properties dialog box is displayed.

  6. On the IntelliSnap Operation tab, configure the IntelliSnap properties.
    1. Select the IntelliSnap check box.
    2. Ffrom the Available Snap Engines list, select the engine.
    3. Select the MediaAgent that performs backup copy operations from the Use Proxy list.

      Note: The proxy server operating system must be the same or a higher version than the client.

    4. To use a different proxy computer than the MediaAgent for the backup copy, select the Use Separate Proxy for Backup copy and then select the server from the Proxy list.
    5. To use the source computer when the proxy computer is unreachable, select the Use source if proxy is unreachable check box.
  7. Click OK to close the Subclient Properties dialog box.
