Restoring a legacy encrypted backup created on another client
If a server allows redirected restores, you (the user) must be authorized to perform such restores.
Refer to the NetBackup Administrator's Guide, Volume I for details on redirected restores.
- Obtain the pass phrase that was used on the other client when the encrypted backup was made. Without that pass phrase, you cannot restore the files.
Note if the pass phrase is the same on both clients, skip to step 4.
- To preserve your own (current) key file, move or rename it.
- Use the bpkeyfile command to create a key file that matches the other client's. When the bpkeyutil process prompts you for the pass phrase, specify the other client's pass phrase.
bpkeyfile -change_key_file_pass_phrase key_file_path
The key_file_path is the path for a new key file on your client. This key file matches the other client's.
After you enter the command, bpkeyfile prompts you for the client's pass phrase (obtained in step 1).
For more information on the bpkeyfile command, refer to the NetBackup Commands Reference Guide.
- Restore the files to the other client.
After you restore the encrypted files from the client, rename or delete the key file that you created in step 3.
Next, you move or rename the original key file to its original location or name. If you do not re-establish your key file to its original location and name, you may not be able to restore your own encrypted backups.
