Title:  How to create CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup policies uses the CA ARCserve D2D?

Description:
The process of creating CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup policies uses the CA ARCserve D2D interface for configuring backup settings, with a few distinctions. You can create policies based on similar backup needs, for example, by installed application or by schedule.
Solution:
The steps required for creating a simple CA ARCserve D2D backup job policy:
1.    From the Navigation Panel, click Policies. 
2.    Click New. The New Policy dialog opens. 
3.    Enter a Policy Name that appropriately describes the policy. 
4.    On the Backup Settings tab, click Protection Settings and specify the following information: 
·       Backup Destination--Specify the local volume or remote shared folder where you want to save your backup sessions.
·       CA ARCserve D2D VM Backup Proxy--Specify the Hostname or IP address of the server where CA ARCserve D2D has bee installed. If CA

ARCserve D2D is not already installed, you can use CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager to deploy it. Provide the appropriate credentials for this server. The Port number defaults to 8014. If you changed this default during CA ARCserve D2D installation, specify the correct port number.
·       Recovery Points--Enter the number of backup images to retain. The default value is 31. When the limit you specify is exceeded, the software merges the oldest incremental child backup into the parent backup to create a new baseline image. Lower this value if your backup destination does not have sufficient free space.
·       Compression--Select a compression level. The default value is Standard. You can specify no compression or Maximum compression.
·       Encryption--Specify an encryption level. The default value is no encryption. If you specify an encryption level, you provide an encryption password that is used to restore encrypted data.
·       Throttle Backup--Enter the rate at which backups are written to disk. Lower this rate to reduce CPU or network load but note that doing so increases backup times. This option is disabled by default.
5.    Click Schedule and complete the following information: 
·       Start date and time--Specify the date and time you want to begin your backup jobs.
·       Incremental Backup--Define a repeat schedule for your incremental backup jobs. The default value is to repeat Incremental Backups once a day.
·       Full Backup--Define a repeat schedule for your full backup jobs. By default, this value is set to never repeat.
·       Verify Backup--Define a repeat schedule for verify backup jobs. By default, this value is set to never repeat.
6.    Click Advanced and enable the following options if you want to truncate application log files: 
·       SQL Server--Specify a daily, weekly, or monthly truncation schedule.
·       Exchange Server--Specify a daily, weekly, or monthly truncation schedule.
7.    Click Pre/Post Backup Settings and specify any desired pre- or post-backup commands. If needed, provide the proper credentials: 
·       Run a command before backup is started--Enter the script command to run before starting the backup job.
·       On exit code--Enable this option if you want to trigger the script command on a specific exit code.
·       Run Job--If selected, the software continues running the job if the specified exit code is returned.
·       Fail Job--If selected, the software aborts the backup job if the specified exit code is returned.
·       Run a command after snapshot is taken--Enter the script command to run after the snapshot is taken.
·       Run a command after backup is over--Enter the script command to run after backup completes.
8.    (Optional) Click the Preferences tab. Configure any desired email alerts, as needed. If you enable these options, click Email Settings to configure your email server. Provide the Service type, Mail Server and Port. If authentication is required, enable that option and provide credentials. 
·       Type the Subject that appears in the email, for example, CA ARCserve Host-Based VM Backup Alert.
·       Type a From value, for example, CA ARCserve Host-Based VM Backup.
·       Enter email addresses for all Recipients, separated by a semi-colon (;). 

You may enable Proxy Settings, if needed. Provide the Proxy Server name and Port and the required credentials.
