Journal based backup advice

#1
Hi,

I want to configure Journal based backup for a Windows client that has a lot of files to backup.

I read the following in the IBM FAQs:
Because of this and the stated limitation of journal backup, it is recommended that periodic full incremental backups be done along with more frequent journal backups.

So I planned to have a normal client schedule to run on weekdays which would use the journal service and a second incremental client schedule to run on a weekend with the -nojournal option.

A TSM consultant in our service partner told me that I would need to use two different TSM client nodes for this single Windows server - one for the journal backups and a second one for the weekend incremental backups.

Is this correct? Has anyone else configured Journal based backups with two different client nodes for a single Windows server?

I was planning to use just one TSM client node associated with both schedules for backing up this single Windows server.

Thanks in advance

No. You were on the right track to have a schedule that runs Sunday to Friday, and a 2nd one for the same node with the option -nojournal on Saturday.

The weekly regular incremental will resync the journal database and handle anything that may have been missed by the journal during the week.
