Lotus Domino restore options


Lotus Domino restore options

You can set specific Lotus Domino-related restore options when you create a restore job.

See Selecting restore options for Lotus Domino databases.

The Lotus Domino restore options are described in the following table:

Table: Lotus Domino restore options



Seconds to wait for the database to go offline

Specifies the number of seconds for the restore process to wait for a database that is in use. When a Lotus database is restored it must first be taken offline. This will ensure that the database is not being accessed, closed, or deleted while the restore operation is being processed. If the database is still in use and cannot be taken offline after the specified wait time, the restore will fail.

Retain original IDs

Restores the original database IDs.

Assign new database ID

Assigns new IDs to the database.

Assign new database ID and replica ID

Assigns new IDs to the database. A replica ID is used to synchronize two or more databases that are being replicated in the Lotus Domino environment. You can assign a new replica ID during a restore to prevent other databases under replication from overwriting the restored database files.

Point in time restore

Specifies the date and time to restore the database. The option is only available for logged databases when the archive logging style is set. Backup Exec will restore the Lotus Domino database you selected in the Restore selections dialog box and then automatically restore the necessary transaction logs required to bring the databases up to the date and time specified.

If a point in time is not specified, the databases will be restored up to the last committed transactions in the log file.

This option may require additional time since the archived transaction logs are also restored.
