Restoring an Enterprise Vault file system component
You can use the same procedure to restore an Enterprise Vault file system component such as an index location, an open partition, a closed partition, or a ready partition. When you restore an index location, you restore the index folders that reside in the hierarchy of that location. When you restore an open partition, you restore the selected physical store for the Enterprise Vault archives. An open partition can be an NTFS directory or an NAS device share and only one open partition can exist in a vault store. In addition, a vault store can contain one or more closed partitions that you can select to restore.
Use any of the following methods to restore Enterprise Vault file system data:
Run the restore from the NetBackup master server.
Run the restore from the system that hosted the Enterprise Vault file system data and also the NetBackup policy client for the Enterprise Vault file system data backup images.
Run the restore from the system that hosted the Enterprise Vault file system data. However, this system was not the NetBackup policy client for the Enterprise Vault file system data backup images.
By default, a NetBackup client is not allowed to show the backup images where the policy client for those images is some other NetBackup client. In this case, you may have to add a No Restriction File on the NetBackup master server. That allows this NetBackup client to show and restore the backup images of Enterprise Vault file system data that were taken through another NetBackup client.
See the NetBackup Administrator's Guide, Volume I for more information about the No Restriction File.
