CommServe Disaster Recovery Tool: Postrecovery Options

The following table lists the post recovery options that can be set from the CommServe Disaster Recovery tool:

Postrecovery Options Description
Select DB to Perform Operations Runs postrecovery operations on all applicable databases or on specific databases (such as the CommServe or WFEngine DB).
Mark All Tapes as Exported Marks all tapes as exported within all libraries of the CommServe database. To rediscover the media, reset these libraries after their libraries and drives are configured.

Use only if you are importing all removable media into new libraries.

Set new e-mail server Sets a new e-mail server for the new CommServe. Use this option if you want to prevent the old CommServe's e-mail server from receiving new alerts, reports, or other forms of notification. You can select a new e-mail server or put a null entry (which results in no e-mail server).

If you do not want to use an e-mail server, enter Null in the field.

Change all user e-mail address to Sets a new e-mail address for all CommServe users for the new CommServe. Use this option if you want to prevent users of the old CommServe from receiving alerts, reports, or other forms of notification.

This option changes the SMTP domain part of the e-mail address. 

Disable MediaAgent Disables all the MediaAgents in the CommServe system.

Prevents jobs from accessing MediaAgents. Individual MediaAgents can be re-enabled from the CommCell Console.

Reset index cache timestamps Resets the index cache timestamps in the database to '0'. This setting enables the CommServe Disaster Recovery Tool to check the index cache label (ICL) file. If the file exists, the timestamp is updated with the time when the check happened, and if it does not exist, an ICL file is automatically created. This operation may take some time to complete.
Update Windows Version for CommServe Automatically writes the Windows host information from the local registry to the CommServe database to prevent conflicts with automatic updates and scheduling.
Disable scheduler Disables all scheduled tasks in the CommServe database. You can re-enable scheduled tasks from the CommServe Properties window.
Disable Update Caches Prevents the update cache hosts from distributing automatic updates to their associated clients. If configured for automatic updates, clients receive their updates from the CommServe Update Cache.
Reset Update Information for CommServe Update and service pack information in the CommServe database is synchronized with packages locally installed after restoring the database and restarting.

Resets the status of the baseline.

Reset CommServe Cache Information Synchronizes the CommServe Cache location and the database content with the locally installed cache.

Important: Clearing this option can render the cache non-operational.

Seal Dedup Stores Closes all active Deduplication databases (DDB), and the Deduplication of data on all DDBs is self-contained.

Use only if all current active DDBs are unrecoverable or if the restore is performed using a DR Backup older than five days.

Execute Setup Scripts Use only if you restored the database using SQL Server Management Studio.

Resets all database permission.

Important: Clearing this option cause connectivity to fail in the new CommServe.

Disable All Activity Disables all CommCell level activity.

Activities can be re-enabled from the CommCell Console.

Suspend Running Jobs Suspends all jobs currently running on the CommCell.

Jobs can be resumed or killed from the CommCell Console.
