About restoring SQLite backups

The nbsqlite -o restore command for restore initiates the restore operation using -S and -t as required parameters. The parameters -id and -C are optional parameters.

The parameter -id restores the backup using the specified backup image name. The parameter -C lists all the backups that exists on the specified client. When you do not specify the client, it defaults to the NetBackup master server.


Ensure that the SQLite agent and NetBackup are of same version for successful backup and restore operations.

When you initiate a restore, the agent reads the command line arguments and parses the nbsqlite.conf configuration file. The agent then interacts with the NetBackup XBSA interface to retrieve the backup according to the specified parameters.

The NetBackup XBSA interface reads the progress files to receive the SQLite backup files to restore them to the target directory.

The command prompt indicates the successful completion status of the restore. The Activity Monitor also displays the status for the restore job.
