Backup Template name

Hello Experts,

I am using MAXDB and new to database.

I have a query on the backup template name.

Is there any restrictions on the name being used for the media name ? ie., is it correct to use the media name with the whitespaces as

Media name: "Demo Log" instead of "DemoLog" ?

Is there any naming convention for the name to be used ?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Balu,

    having spaces in the media-name is usually no problem, that should work.

    Anyhow I would recommend to avoid this as spaces are not distinguishable frorm any other "whitespace" to the human reader.

    Concerning naming conventions there are only the limitations to specify external backup tools (only before 7.7). By putting a "BACK", "NSR" or "TSM" as the first letters of your backup template name you could specify which external backuptool to be used.

    Starting with MaxDB 7.7 there is a seperate attribute for this.

    Check the documentations for more on this:

    Nevertheless it's always a good idea to choose a name that is intuitve even to any of your co-workers (in case you're not there when the restore needs to be done) ...
