Performing a NetBackup for DB2 point-in-time rollback restore from a SnapVault backup (UNIX)
When you select a point-in-time rollback restore from a SnapVault backup, NetBackup restores the entire subvolume (qtree) to a new subvolume (qtree) on the primary host. The restore does not overwrite the existing subvolume. File verification is not performed.
The format of the new subvolume name is as follows:
For example: subvol1_restore.2005.05.19.10h49m04s
To perform a NetBackup for DB2 point-in-time rollback restore from a SnapVault backup (UNIX)
- Unmount the original subvolume, which is the subvolume that the restore process did not overwrite.
- Rename the original subvolume.
- Rename the new subvolume with the name of the original.
- Mount the new subvolume on the client. Use the ALTER DATABASE RENAME DATAFILE command to point to the restored data file on the newly created subvolume.
