Recovering storage data after a factory reset
If you performed a factory reset and want to keep the existing storage data, use the following procedure to recover the appliance.
If you have a multi-node appliance, you only need to use this procedure if you performed a factory reset on both nodes. If you only reset one of the nodes, add that node back to the appliance. See Adding a node.
To recover the appliance
- Make sure that no new storage has been attached to the appliance that was not added to the appliance before the factory reset.
- Log in to the Flex Appliance Shell and run the following command:
If you have a multi-node appliance, select one of the nodes to run the recovery from.
Do not run the system appliance-recover command from both nodes.
- Follow the prompts to recover the appliance.
- If you have a Veritas 5150 Appliance, add the applications that you have instances of and the add-ons that are installed on them to the repository before you start the instances. See Adding files to the repository.
- If your appliance was previously configured for Call Home and email alerts, you must reconfigure the Call Home settings with the set alerts commands. See Configuring Call Home settings.
- If you have a multi-node appliance, add the node that you did not recover back to the recovered appliance.See Adding a node.
