Disaster Recovery Backup Options (General)

Use this dialog box to select the options for Disaster Recovery (DR) Backup.

Full

Establishes the backup type as a Full backup.

Use this option to backup the entire CommServe database and the Windows registry entries created by the software.

Differential

Establishes the backup type as a Differential backup.

Use this option to backup data that has changed since the last full backup. This backup is smaller in size and takes less time to complete and can be used if there are limitations in disk space or network bandwidth.

Note: To restore data from this backup, the last full backup must be accessible.

Enable database(s) backup compression

Select this option to compress the database backup file (*.dmp). Selecting this option will only compress the backup file; it will not compress the database.

Compression saves disk space and transmission bandwidth for export and backup locations.

Note: Do not select this option for Microsoft SQL Server Express Editions which is installed with the  CommvaultExpress Editions. For example, the Edge Express solution.

Select additional databases to backup

Select the additional database(s) to be included in the DR backup operations. The databases selected will be protected in addition to the CommServe database.

If the additional databases are not included in the DR backup, then during a CommServe failure, these databases are not available for recovery. We recommend that you do not exclude any database from the backup job.

  • HistoryDB

    Specifies whether the history database is included in the DR backup. By default, the database is included in the DR backup.

    Clear this option to exclude the history database from the DR backup.

  • WFEngine

    Specifies whether the workflow engine database is included in the DR backup. By default, the database is included in the DR backup.

    Clear this option to exclude the workflow engine database from the DR backup.

  • CVCloud

    Specifies whether the Metrics Reporting Server database is included in the DR backup. If Metrics Reporting Server is installed on the CommServe host, by default, the database is included in the DR backup.

    Clear this option to exclude the database from the DR backup.
