We are testing setting up of db backups to tape using netbackup on Linux. We want to set up a regular rolling 4 day backup schedule where the backups would automatically qualify for deletions after 4 days. We also want the ability to retain certain backups from past (within the past 3 days) or certain future backups to be retained indefinitely, if needed. The latter type backups will be deleted via rman when not needed. Indefinitely in practice can be 6 to 7 months.

We want to be able control this from rman than netbackup policy. Is the only way to achieve it is a setting of forever in veritas policy? With this we would delete the redundant backups using rman, while retaining the 'special' backups. Different ideas?
