Adding a PostgreSQL Database Group
A database group is a logical entity that contains the databases that need to be backed up. You can back up specific databases at a particular time or frequency by adding the databases to a user-defined database group for DumpBasedBackupSet.
You cannot create a user-defined database group for FSBasedBackupSet. It can only contain a default database group.
Before You Begin
- If you have not done so, create a server plan.
This plan determines when the software automatically backs up the data files. For more information, see Creating a Server Plan.
- If you have not already done so, add an instance for the PostgreSQL database.
- From the navigation pane, go to Protect > Databases.
The Instances page appears.
- Click an instance
The instance page appears.
- In the Backup sets section, click DumpBasedBackupSet.
The DumpBasedBackupSet page appears.
- Click Add database group.
The Add database group dialog box appears.
- In the Database group name box, type the database group name.
- In the Number of data streams box, type the number of streams that the software uses for backups.
- To include the object list in the backup content for dump-based backups, select the Collect Object List During Backup check box.
- Depending on your choice whether to use a database plan or not, complete one of the following steps:
- If you want to use a database plan, move the Use backup plan slider to the right. Select a database plan.
- If you do not want to use a database plan, move the Use backup plan slider to the right. Select a storage policy and a schedule policy.
- To add the databases that you want to include in the database group, select the check boxes of the databases.
- Click Add.
Note: For Dumpbased backup set, associating a database group to a backup plan will only associate a storage policy, and not a schedule policy.
