Data Protector 6.2 is available since weeks with a lot of improved stuff and new features; unfortunately the scheduler (omnitrig) was not improved. To allow backups like: Make a backup on last sunday of month or Make a backup on first sunday of month, I found some usefull stuff at HP… Thanks to some Data Protector guys from US; the hack will work until 2032; of course until this date the new scheduler is implemented within Data Protector. In the example a full backup on every last sunday of the month will be done. In this example a full backup on every first saturday of the month will be done. The schedules can be modifed to allow incremental backups or to change retention periods. To change the retention period you could i.e. add -full -protection -weeks 8. The two examples can be downloaded below.
Data Protector 8.10 has been released. The new version delivers some new features, my favorites are the new advanced scheduler and the file-system backup, which can be resumed. For customers with a valid support contract, the new version can be downloaded here: http://support.openview.hp.com. With Data Protector 8.1 new licenses are required, for updates from previous versions the “InstantOn” license was added to allow sufficient time to migrate the current licenses using: http://webware.hp.com. Announcement: Starting 01. April 2014 Data Protector 6.2X is no longer sold, on 31. December 2014 DP 6.2X becomes end-of-support; so migrate to the latest version of Data Protector.
