Configuring a Subclient for the InterSystems Caché Database Journal Files

When you install the file system agent, the software automatically creates a default backup set.

Under the user-defined backup set, create a subclient that contains the InterSystems Caché database journal files.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client > File System > backup_set.
  2. Right-click the backup set that contains the journal files, point to All Tasks, and then click New Subclient.

    The Create New Subclient dialog box appears.

  3. On the General tab, specify the following settings:
    1. In the Subclient Name box, type a name.
    2. On the Content tab, click Browse, and then select the volumes that host the InterSystems Caché journal files and click Add.

      Note: If you use the default settings for a UNIX installation, the journal files are located in the /intersystems/prd* directory.

  4. On the Storage Device tab, select a storage policy from the Storage Policy list.
  5. Click Advanced.

    The Advanced Subclient Properties dialog box appears.

  6. On the IntelliSnap Operation tab, configure the IntelliSnap properties:
    1. Select the IntelliSnap check box.
    2. From the Available Snap Engines list, select the engine.
    3. From the Use Proxy list, select the MediaAgent that performs backup copy operation.

      Note: The proxy server operating system must be the same or a higher version than the client.

    4. To use a different proxy computer than the MediaAgent for the backup copy operation, select the Use Separate Proxy for Backup copy check box, and then select the server from the Proxy list.
    5. To use the source computer when the proxy computer is unreachable, select the Use source if proxy is unreachable check box.
  7. Click OK.
