Restoring Enterprise Vault SQL database components
You can use the same procedure to restore the following Enterprise Vault SQL database components:
If you restore a vault store database, Veritas recommends that you also restore the corresponding open partition if it is available.
You can restore an Enterprise Vault SQL database from any of the following systems:
Run the restore from the NetBackup master server.
Run the restore from the system that hosted the Enterprise Vault SQL database and also the policy host for the policy that was used to take the backup of this SQL database.
Run the restore from the system that hosted the Enterprise Vault SQL database and was not the NetBackup policy client for the Enterprise Vault SQL database backup images.
By default, a NetBackup client is not allowed to show the backup images for which a policy client is some other NetBackup client. You may need to add a No Restriction File on the NetBackup master server. That enables the NetBackup client to show and restore the backup images of the Enterprise Vault SQL database that were taken through some other NetBackup client.
See the NetBackup Administrator's Guide, Volume I for more information about the No Restriction File.
