Creating Auxiliary Copy, Backup Copy, or Content Indexing Schedule Policies

You can create the following types of schedule policies:

  • Auxiliary Copy Schedule Policy

    A scheduling template for auxiliary copy operations to be performed on specific storage policies or storage policy copies within a CommCell. This type of policy is useful when there are many storage policies within the CommCell that require the same schedules for auxiliary copy operations. If you associate a schedule policy with a storage policy, all copies including any future copies will use the same auxiliary copy schedule.

  • Backup Copy for Snap Backups Schedule Policy

    A scheduling template for backup copy operations (snap-to-tape backup) to be performed on specific storage policies within a CommCell. This type of policy is useful when there are many storage policies within the CommCell that require the same schedules for backup copy operations. If you associate a schedule policy with a storage policy, all copies including any future copies will use the same backup copy schedule.

  • Content Indexing Schedule Policy

    A scheduling template for indexing operations to be performed on specific storage policies within a CommCell. This type of policy is useful when there are many storage policies within the CommCell that require the same schedules for content indexing operations.
