Spectrum Protect policy objects manage how data is stored, where client data is stored, the number of maintained versions, and the length of time those versions are stored.

Spectrum Protect allows a variety of configurations using Spectrum Protect policy objects, but regardless of the configuration, Teradata DSE for Spectrum Protect requires a backup copy group policy object. The backup copy group policy object can be pre-existing or newly-created, but only Spectrum Protect backup object types are supported.

The following table lists Spectrum Protect policy object fields that control the removal of inactive objects from storage. Objects become inactive when a backup is performed with the same name as an object that is already stored on the server.

Field Description Default
Versions Data Deleted (VERDELETED) Number of inactive versions, if active versions do not exist. 1
Versions Data Exist (VEREXISTS) Number of inactive versions, if active versions exist. 1
Retain Extra Versions (RETEXTRA) Number of days to keep the last inactive versions, if active versions do not exist. 30
Retain Only Version (RETONLY) Number of days to keep the last inactive versions, if active versions do not exist.
