About recovering the master server disk for UNIX and Linux
Two procedures explain how to recover data if the system disk fails on a UNIX or Linux NetBackup master server, as follows:
The root file system is intact. The operating system, NetBackup software and some (if not all) other files are assumed to be lost.
The root file system is lost along with everything else on the disk. This situation requires a total recovery. This recovery reloads the operating system to an alternate boot disk and starts from this disk during recovery. You then can recover the root partition without risking a crash that is caused by overwriting the files that the operating system uses during the restore.
See Recovering the master server when the root partition is lost.
For NetBackup master and media servers, the directory locations of the NetBackup catalog become an integral part of NetBackup catalog backups. Any recovery of the NetBackup catalog requires identical directory paths or locations be created during the NetBackup software reinstallation. Disk partitioning, symbolic links, and NetBackup catalog relocation utilities may be needed.
NetBackup Bare Metal Restore (BMR) protects client systems by backing them up with a policy configured for BMR protection. Information is available that describes BMR backup and recovery procedures.
