About recovering the entire NetBackup catalog
Veritas recommends that you recover the entire catalog. Doing so helps ensure consistency among the various parts of the catalog.
Recovery includes the catalog image files and configuration files that are in the catalog backups that are identified by the disaster recovery file, as follows:
The NetBackup relational database files identified by the DR file are restored. The images and configuration files that are identified by the disaster recovery file are restored.
The NetBackup relational database files identified by the DR file are restored. All catalog backup image files back to the last full catalog backup are automatically included in an incremental catalog backup. Therefore, only catalog images and configuration files that changed since the last full backup are restored. You can then use the Backup, Archive, and Restore user interface to restore all backup images.
You can use either of the following methods to recover the entire catalog:
The Catalog Recovery Wizard in the NetBackup Administration Console.
The text-based wizard launched by the bprecover -wizard command and option.
The relational database transaction log is not applied during full catalog recovery.
The parts of the NetBackup catalog are described in the administrator's guides.
