Running unscheduled backups of other remote filesystems

NOTE: Before performing an unscheduled backup, you might need to format the media and establish backup user equivalence.

In the Backup Manager, to run an unscheduled backup of a remote filesystem that is not listed in the Backup Manager main window (a filesystem unknown to the local host):

  1. Select Run Unscheduled from the Backup menu, then select Other Remote Filesystem.

  2. Select the host on which the remote filesystem resides. See ``Selecting another host to manage'' in the Networking Guide.

  3. Select the filesystem to back up.

  4. If necessary, select or enter the correct ``Media Device''.

  5. If necessary, click on the Media Options button to change:

  6. Verify that the name of the directory from which to start the backup is correct.

  7. Click on Start.

  8. When prompted, insert each media volume.

  9. Verify the backup by clicking on Yes at the prompt, inserting the requested backup volume, and clicking on OK. 

    To skip the verification process, click on No.

  10. When the backup is complete, click on OK.
