Performing a Backup of the InterSystems Caché Journal Files

Perform a backup on the subclient that you configured to back up the InterSystems Caché journal files.

Best Practice: Perform this backup more that one time per day. The frequency depends on your Recovery Point Objectives.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client> File System.
  2. Right-click the journal file 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. 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.
