Unable to redirect the restore of LUNs on a NetApp Filer.
NDMP Log Message: RESTORE: LUN files can only be restore to qtree root directories.
NDMP Log Message: RESTORE: can't mark as LUN: : Undefined error: 0
2) Install Service Pack 2 for Backup Exec 12.5, via LiveUpdate or using the link at the bottom of this document.
3) Use regedit to locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Symantec\Backup Exec for Windows\Backup Exec\NDMP
6) Set the PreserveTree value in the registry back to 1 - this is a recommendation against restoring other types of NDMP data where restoring the tree may be important
The intention is that in a future version of Backup Exec, the ability to control whether or not a full path will be restored during NDMP jobs will be available in the Backup Exec Console. With both scenarios, the LUN is recreated in an offline state so that it can be mapped to an unused LUN ID, please refer to NetApp's own documentation for more information on mapping LUNs.
If a LUN has been created in a Qtree folder in a volume and not in the volume root on a NetApp Filer, then any attempt to redirect the restore to another volume will restore the data, but not recreate the LUN correctly on the filer. The Job Log for the restore will show that it completed successfully, however if you expand the NDMP Log section in the Job log it will show.
