A backup administrator needs to perform file system restore operations for two important client systems, client1 and client2. Dedicated resources are available for restore jobs but only one restore job may run at a time. When submitted, the restore jobs will be queued until a restore job that is already running is completed. The restore job for client1 must be performed first and the restore job for client2 must run before any other restore jobs that may be added to the job queue. In the Backup, Archive, and Restore (BAR) GUI, which job priority values would allow for the client1 restore to run first, followed by the client2 restore, and finally any other restore jobs that may be submitted?
client1: 92000; client2: 91000
In addition to the full backup schedule type, which other schedule can be configured as a synthetic backup?
cumulative incremental backup
