Modifying a Server Backup Plan

You can modify the following server backup plan properties:

  • The storage pools to use for the primary and auxiliary data copies
  • The data retention period
  • The RPO (recovery point objective) options that the software uses to automatically back up the data
  • IntelliSnap options


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Manage > Plans.

    The Plan page appears.

  2. Click the plan name.

    The plan details page appears.

  3. To modify the RPO options, see Creating a Server Backup Plan for information about the options.

    To disable full backup job, move the Add full backup toggle key to the left.

  4. If the plan is associated with an entity that has IntelliSnap enabled, the Snapshot options section appears on the plan details page:
    • Number of Snap recovery points is set automatically to 8. You can edit that value to change the number of snapshots that are retained.
    • Backup Copy is on by default. To turn the Backup Copy key off, move the toggle key to the left.
    • Backup copy schedule displays the name of the schedule that is created automatically when IntelliSnap is enabled. You can click the schedule to make changes.
  5. To modify the primary or secondary storage pools, in the row for the primary or secondary pool, click the action button action_button, and then click Edit.

    The Edit storage dialog box appears.

    1. In the Name box, type a unique name for the storage, for example Primary.
    2. From the Storage pool list, select the pool to use.
    3. Optional: In the Retention period box, type the number of days that the software retains the data.
    4. Click Save.
  6. Click Save.


The server backup plan uses the modified settings when the next backup operation runs.
