Backing Up a PostgreSQL Database

You can perform a full backup operation or an incremental backup operation of a PostgreSQL database.

Before You Begin

For FSBasedBackupSet, verify that the archive directory is properly configured, and that archiving is working.


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Protect > Databases > DB Instances.

    The Instances page appears.

  2. Beside Instances, from the View list, select PostgreSQL.
  3. Click an instance.

    The instance page appears.

  4. In the Backup sets section, click a backup set.

    The backup set page appears.

  5. In the Database groups section, click the database group that you want to back up.

    The database group page appears.

  6. In the Backup section, click Back up now.

    The Select backup level dialog box appears.

  7. Click OK.

Note: To associate a schedule to a subclient of a Dumpbased backup set, first set the plan to none and save the changes. Then, associate the subclient to a storage policy and a schedule policy. Associating a subclient to a backup plan will only associate a storage policy, and not a schedule policy.
