Retain script settings when recreating backup catalogs

Recommended Posts

Because of grooming problems, I end up rebuilding backup set catalogs regularly. Unfortunately, rebuilding the catalog removes the backup set from any scripts it is participating in... in our case, with a D2D2T strategy, this is a real pain in the neck, as I have to:


1. Add the backup set back to the main backup script, and fix the schedule so it is used.

2. Add the backup set to the snapshot transfer scripts we use for offsite tapes

3. Add the backup set to the weekly grooming script


It's easy to forget / fumble this, since the catalog file rebuild takes so long. Of course, it would be better if grooming weren't so buggy, but since that's apparently hard to fix, it would be nice if the process of rebuilding a catalog were easier in the mean time.
