Problem

Steps to be taken for a Sybase alternative client restore.

Note: For a Sybase alternate client restore to work, the user ID (UID) of the restoring Sybase backup server must be the same as the UID of the Sybase backup server from the source host. This is a NetBackup design consideration for security purposes and is not a defect.

Solution

Ensure that the VERITAS NetBackup (tm) server is configured to allow the redirected restore; Consult the NetBackup Server Administrator Guide.
 
Specify either of the following
( If you specify both, NetBackup considers them in the order listed)
Specify client name on the Sybase  LOAD command with the -CLIENT option or specify client name on the destination client to equal the client name of the source client (where the database was originally backed up)  with the CLIENT_NAME option in the $SYBASE/bp.conf. .


For example, the following command specifies "saturn" as the client to browse:
load database mydb from "sybackup::SYB!!.mydb.D.0.24312.17-12-1999.14:05:25 -SERV master-server -CLIENT saturn
 
NOTE : the -CLIENT option is only for the Sybase load (restore) command, and is not used for the Sybase dump command (backup), . Therefore, the alternate client name must be configured in a bp.conf file. This should be configured in the bp.conf in the home directory of the user that is the owner of the Sybase backup server for this database.
 
Determine the name of the database on the source client (the client from which the database was backed up). Using NetBackup for Sybase, check that the name of the database on the destination client (the client receiving the database restore) is the same as the name of the database on the source client.
 
For a successful alternate client restore, the destination client must have a database with the same name as the database backed up from the source client.
