You can schedule third-party applications to back up the Teradata Viewpoint backup files. See the vendor-specific documentation for instructions on how to install the client and configure and run backup jobs. Teradata Viewpoint supports the following third-party applications for backup:
- Symantec NetBackup
- IBM Tivoli Storage Manager
- Quest NetVault
The third-party application client software must be installed on the server where the Teradata Viewpoint backup files reside:
- From the Teradata Viewpoint portal page, click and click Backup on the page to check the configured backup location.
Install the backup applications client software in the following location, depending on which location is selected in Backup:
- Local: Viewpoint server
- Network: Networked file server
- Check the Backup portlet for the time of day that the last successful backup completed.
Schedule the third-party backup jobs after the Teradata Viewpoint database backup is completed.
This makes sure you get the latest backed up data set and avoid resource contention.
