Druva provides several options for backups that you can schedule, such as Full backup, Differential backup, Transaction Log backup, and SQL Tail-Log Backup.

You can also run on-demand backups manually from the following pages:

  • Resource Details

  • All SQL Resources

  • Backup Set Details

The backup types available will depend on the page you are on.

Manual backup from the Backup Set Summary page

You can initiate an on-demand manual backup for any backup set from the backup set summary page.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to the SQL Backup Sets page.

  2. Select one or more backup sets, and click the Backup Now button.

This action will initiate a differential backup for all the backup sets selected. If this is the first backup, a full backup will be initiated instead.Backup-Set-Summary-page.jpg

Manual backup from the Resource Details page

The All SQL Resources Page provides a broad overview of all your SQL resources. When you view the details of a resource, you can also see the configured backup sets for that resource, along with an option to initiate a backup on demand. z

Procedure

  1. Navigate to the All SQL Resources Page to view all the resources.

  2. Click a resource name to view its details. 

You will see the resource details, along with configured backup sets.

  1. Select one or more backup sets, and click the Backup Now button.

Manual backup from the Backup Set Details page

With recent updates, the Backup Set Details Page offers the most flexibility and control over your backup processes. You can manually initiate both Full and Log backups directly from this page.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to the Backup Set Details Page.

  2. Locate the Backup Now button on the top-right of the page. You will see a drop-down next to this button.
