Recovering the NetBackup catalog from a nonprimary copy of a catalog backup
By default, catalog backup can have multiple copies, and the catalog is recovered from the primary backup copy. The primary copy is the first or the original copy. However, you can recover from a copy other than the primary.
You must be logged on to the master server on which you want to recover the catalog. You cannot change server while running the NetBackup Administration Console on a different host and then run the wizard.
You must have root (administrative) privileges to perform these procedures.
To recover the catalog from a non-primary copy
- If the copy of the catalog backup is on a medium other than tape, do the following:
Make sure that the disk that contains the backup is mounted against the correct mount path (as displayed in the disaster recovery file).
For a catalog backup file in a disk pool, do the following:
Create the disk storage server for the storage by using the Storage Server Configuration Wizard.
Create the disk pool for the storage by using the Disk Pool Configuration Wizard.
Run the following command to synchronize the disaster recovery file to the new disk pool.
nbcatsync -sync_dr_file disaster_recovery_file
- Run the following NetBackup command to recover the catalog:
bprecover - wizard - copy N
N is the number of the copy from which you want to recover.
