Performing a Backup of the InterSystems Caché Database

Perform an IntelliSnap backup on the subclient that you configured to back up the InterSystems Caché database data.

The pre-process script that you configured for the subclient freezes the Caché database before the software takes the snapshot.

The post-process script that you configured for the subclient thaws the Caché database after the backup completes.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client> File System.
  2. Right-click the subclient and click Backup.
  3. Select the backup type and job initiation:
    1. In the Backup Type section, select Full.
    2. In the Job Initiation section, select Schedule.

      Note: Configure a schedule to run nightly. For information on how to configure a backup schedule, see Schedule Backups.

  4. Optional: Create an inline copy. An inline copy is a backup copy that the Commvault software creates during the backup operation.
    1. Click Advanced.

      The Advanced Backup Options dialog box is displayed.

    2. On the Data tab, select the Backup Copy options.
      • Select the Create Backup Copy immediately check box.
      • Select Start Backup Copy job based on Storage Policy Rules.
    3. Click OK to close the Advanced Backup Options dialog box.
  5. Click OK to close the Backup Options dialog box.

You can manage the snapshots (for example, mount a snapshot) that the Commvault backup creates. For information on how to manage UNIX snapshots, see IntelliSnap Array Management.
