Notes of consolidate


Summary

Notes Consolidate There are three.

1) From a computer that is doing an incremental backup, please run the consolidate processing.
If you run from other computer, inconsistencies will occur in the management information of the incremental backup.
The incremental backup after the consolidate is made as reconcile.
* In AIP version 3.5.7.1193 ( SP5 ) , is supported to run from the other computer.

 

More information

Server A: AIP installation, server for the backup making.
Server B: AIP installation, Server to use only in consolidate.

Step1) Create an image ( base + increment ) to the save destination of "Server A".
1_00001.aiv
1_00001_i00001.aii
1_00001_i00002.aii

Step2) Consolidate two of the increment of the Step1 from "Server B".
1_00001.aiv
1_00001_i00001.aii

Step3) When the increment backup of "Server A" to work, incremental by reconcile is created.
1_00001.aiv
1_00001_i00001.aii
1_00001_i00002.aii

Step4) If not consolidate from another computer, the next incremental will be incremental backups.
1_00001.aiv
1_00001_i00001.aii
1_00001_i00002.aii
1_00001_i00003.aii

* If you are not using the reconcile,Step3) base backup image is created, Step4) incremental backup will be created.

Image file name, is held in the registry of the backup target environment.
Workaround is to do the consolidate from "Server A".

2) In replication of configuration, Enable the "Only replicate new image files to this target".
Upon binding only replication destination of the backup image, the image name is shifted in the image location and replication destination,
Image set of replication destination becomes a problem.

Ex.)
Server A: AIP installation, backup creation target server, image destination.
Server B: Server where there is replication destination folder.

Step1) Create an image ( base + increment ) to the save destination of "Server A".
Image destination:
1_00001.aiv
1_00001_i00001.aii
1_00001_i00002.aii

Replication destination:
1_00001.aiv
1_00001_i00001.aii
1_00001_i00002.aii

Step2) Use the Consolidate from the "Server A", replication destination to Consolidate the two increment of Step1).
Image destination:
1_00001.aiv
1_00001_i00001.aii
1_00001_i00002.aii

Replication destination:
1_00001.aiv
1_00001_i00001.aii

Step3) When the "Server A" incremental backup, is performed, it is as follows.
Image destination:
1_00001.aiv
1_00001_i00001.aii
1_00001_i00002.aii
1_00001_i00003.aii

Replication destination:
1_00001.aiv
1_00001_i00001.aii
1_00001_i00003.aii

Since the replication destination image set name is shifted, incremental image after image set coupled with replication destination can not be used.
In "Server A", before incremental backup of Step3), the binding to both of image storage destination and replication destination.

3) The consolidate of the image, need base and incremental images are in the same folder.
