for the creation of the initial Netbackup scripts and schedules. The Sys Admin is responsible for troubleshooting failures, and, if
necessary, will involved me, if he runs into trouble or issues with specific failure points.|| |
At first I misunderstood and thought you meant node-level UNIX backups (of which I've done a countable and finite yet large
number), but on second reading, I think you do your Teradata backups to UNIX.
For what it's worth, where I'm at now, we do backups to mainframe, and where I was before, we didn't do backups, so my experience is both
odd and different from yours. Thanks for the data point--it's interesting.
All the best,
