Changing the MSDP shadow catalog path
You can change the location of the catalog shadow copies. It is recommended that you store the copies on a different volume than both the storage_path and the database_path. (If you configured a separate path for the deduplication database, the paths are different.)
You can change the shadow catalog path during initial MSDP configuration only. If you change it after MSDP backups exist, data loss may occur.
To change the MSDP catalog shadow path
- Open the following file in a text editor:
- Find the CatalogShadowPath parameter and change the value to the wanted path.
The volume must be mounted and available.
- After your changes, save the file.
- Create the
.catalog_shadow_identityfile in the catalog shadow path that you have specified in step 1.
There is a period (.) in front of the file name that denotes a hidden file.
- Restart the NetBackup Deduplication Manager (spad).
- Create the shadow catalog directories by invoking the following command on the MSDP storage server:
UNIX: /usr/openv/pdde/pdcr/bin/cacontrol --catalog backup all
Windows: install_path\Veritas\pdde\cacontrol --catalog backup all
- If an MSDP catalog backup policy exists, update the policy with the new shadow catalog directories. To do so, invoke the following command on the MSDP storage server:
UNIX: /usr/openv/pdde/pdcr/bin/drcontrol --update_policy --policy policy_name
Windows: install_path\Veritas\pdde\drcontrol --update_policy --policy policy_name
