About troubleshooting SharePoint restore operations
NetBackup does not prevent you from restoring placeholders.
NetBackup lets you restore any object that can hold a document, even it does not contain a document.
The following issues also exist for SharePoint:
For a SharePoint survey list, after a restore the "Time Created" value reflects the value at the time of the granular restore. This behavior is by design.
If you restore a deleted report, the report ID is incremented upon restore. If you want to maintain the original report ID value, restore the entire report container.
NetBackup does not start a GRT restore job from a UNIX NetBackup master server. Initiate the restore job from the SharePoint client under which the backup is cataloged.
If you use a SQL local RBS provider and want to take a SharePoint data backup, then you must create a file system policy for file-level backups of SharePoint databases on the SQL server.
You can use this backup for database level restores (full and differential)
When you restore a web application a new application pool is created for each restore. The original application also remains and can be deleted.
