  • Advise for only Monthly backup
    Posted: 03-24-2020, 1:10 AM



    We are running Commvault V11 SP18.6. I have a requirement to take backup of certain Windows VM only once in a Month full backup and keep only 2 last full backup as retention. No daily incremental or weekly backup. Just monthly once. 


    I am bit confused to configure the cycle for this case. Can someone advice how the retention days and cycle configuration will help to take above. 


    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Guru

    What I understand is that you only want to have a monthly backup and retain it for 2 months 
    The endorsement of the first of January (1st Full) 
    The endorsement of February 1 (2nd Full) 
    When running the March 1 backup, requires the January 1 backup to be purged 
    If the answer to the previous example is YES, 
    your retention must be 1 cycle 60 days 

    If the example does not correspond to your need, it would be useful to help us specify your request with similar examples.

    Hi Mauricio,


    Yes, your understanding is correct and thanks for the advise. I confused the Cycle without incremental backup. Let me configure as you recommended. 

    Thanks for your quick advise.
