You can have more than one bpstart or bpend .bat file.

bpstart examples:

NetBackup will only run 1 of them.  It will run the one that best fits with
bpstart_notify.bat being the "catch all" if nothing else applies.

If you have two different scripts, one for fulls and one for incr, then all
you have to do is setup one class with two schedules.  put the two scripts in
the proper location (netbackup\bin) and rename them appropriately

Just remember, if you ever change your class or schedule name these won't run
again until you go back and change their names as well... !!!

I think that you have to create two class, one foe each schedule, because the
batch file (??.bch) are not the same.

Or maybe you can use the incredible "at" command from your Nt server! ;)

How can I set up scheduled full and differential backups of a MSSQL 7 db on
our (unix) netbackup master server?

The idea is to perform a full backup once a week, and to have diffs running
once a day for the rest of the week.

I've got batch files on the client, one set up for full and one for a diff,
that I can run manually fine, but how do I automate this?

Do I have to use bpstart_notify to change the contents of the class batch
file referenced by the netbackup server, depending upon what day of the week
it is?
