I am recently working on an environment need to back up a 10TB SQL server by Networker and Data Domain. By utilizing DDBoost ans saveset “MSSQL:”, the backup job could be done in 13 hours for the daily full backup. This is not the worst result to backup a SQL server in 10TB, but we still can optimize it with some settings in Networker.
Recently I got a task to run a command or script to delete files in a given folder after a success backup. In general, there are two major ways, one way is to use PowerShell script and include Networker backup command, and the other way is to use EMC Networker customized backup command. I chose to use the second way because it is more closely integrated with Networker and easier to manage and monitor.
I follow the steps as below:
- Step 1: In the client host, create a file save001.bat under c:\Program Files\EMC NetWorker\nsr\bin.
- Step 2: Use txt editor to edit the Save001.bat with the script listed in the following post.
- Step 3: Login to NMC, in the Backup Command attribute of the Client resource, type the name of the backup script, save001.bat in our case.
