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

  1. 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.

  2. If you have not already done so, add an instance for the PostgreSQL database.


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Protect > Databases.

    The Instances page appears.

  2. Click an instance

    The instance page appears.

  3. In the Backup sets section, click DumpBasedBackupSet.

    The DumpBasedBackupSet page appears.

  4. Click Add database group.

    The Add database group dialog box appears.

  5. In the Database group name box, type the database group name.

  6. In the Number of data streams box, type the number of streams that the software uses for backups.

  7. To include the object list in the backup content for dump-based backups, select the Collect Object List During Backup check box.

  8. From the Plan list, select a server plan.

  9. To add the databases that you want to include in the database group, select the check boxes of the databases.

  10. 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.
