Restoring a Linux client with media boot


Restoring a Linux client with media boot


If NetBackup access management is used in your environment, you must provide the appropriate credentials when prompted so that NetBackup can restore the client files.

Use the following procedure for Linux clients.

To restore a Linux client with media boot

  1. Prepare to restore the client using the SRT you created on the bootable media.

    See Preparing a client for restore

  2. Insert the bootable CD or bootable DVD into the CD-ROM drive.

    On some systems, you may have to modify the BIOS settings so that the system boots from the CD-ROM drive. Consult your hardware documentation for details.

  3. Turn off the client, then turn it on.

  4. Enter the required information at the following BMR process prompts:

    • Client name (for a discovery boot, enter the client's name as it appears in the Tasks view from the prepare-to-discover operation)

    • Client IP address

    • Network mask

    • Default gateway

    • NetBackup master server name

    • NetBackup master server IP address

    • NetBackup master server gateway IP address

    • Additional gateway address to reach the NetBackup master server

    The restore begins.
