Advanced Restore - Image Level iDataAgent

  • This product is deprecated for AIX and Linux. New installations of the Image Level Agent are no longer supported in V10, but the agent will continue to function normally. Upgrade to the latest service pack in V10 is supported. You cannot use your installed version of the Image Level Agent to perform backups in the next version of SnapProtect.
  • This functionality is now available using Block-Level Backup. We recommend that you begin backing up data by using the block-level backup method instead of using the Image Level Agent as soon as you are able to. No new license is required for Block-Level Backup. For instructions on transitioning to block-level backups, see Transitioning from Image Level Agent to Block-Level Backups.

See Deprecated Features, Products, and Platforms for comprehensive information on deprecated products.

Restoring Files (File Level Restore)

File Level Restores are possible only when metadata is collected during image level backups. This can be done by deselecting the Skip Metafile Creation check box in the Media tab of Advanced Backup Options dialog box. By default, this option is not selected. In addition, you need to select the File Level Browse option in the Browse Options dialog box for File Level Restores. By default, this option is selected.

It is recommended that file-level restores from disk or volume-level backups be performed only with small files. For example, restoring a 2GB file from a disk-level backup is not recommended.

The Client and the MediaAgent must be running the same operating system when performing file level restores.

Restoring to a UNC Path and NFS-Mounted File System

For File Level Restores, besides restoring data to a client computer’s local drive, you can also restore data to a UNC path (Windows) or an NFS-Mounted File System (Unix).

Follow the steps given below to restore data to a UNC path (Windows) or NFS-mounted file system (Unix).

  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client>.
  2. Right-click <Image Level>, and then click All Tasks | Browse and Restore.
  3. Click View Content.
  4. In the Client Browse tab, select the data to be restored and click Recover All Selected.
  1. In the Destination Client list, click the client computer that hosts the mounted file system.
  2. Clear the Restore to same folder check box.
  3. In the Specify Destination Path, enter the network share or click Browse.
  4. In the Browsing for destination folder on <client> dialog box, select the destination folder and click OK.

    For example: /cont1/Log_Files

  5. Click OK.

Restoring from an Auxiliary Backup Copy

To perform file level restores, the operating systems of the client and the MediaAgent computers should be the same. Follow the steps given below to restore files and folders:

  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client>.
  2. Right-click <Image Level>, and then click All Tasks | Browse and Restore.
  3. In the Restore Options dialog box, click Advanced Options tab.
  4. Select the MediaAgent from the Use MediaAgent list, on which the primary copy of data is backed up.
  5. Click View Content.
  6. In the Client Browse tab, select the data that you want to restore and click Recover All Selected.
  7. Clear the Restore to same folder check box.
  8. In the Destination Client list, select the client with the same operating system as the MediaAgent.

  7. In the Client Browse tab, select the data that you want to restore and click Recover All Selected.
  8. In the Destination Client list, select the client with the same operating system as the MediaAgent.
  9. Click OK.

Restoring Volumes (Volume Level Restore)

For Volume Level restores, the destination volume must be at least as large as the volume from which the data was backed up. This is true regardless of the amount of data that is actually restored. For example, if you back up a 10 GB volume that contains 100 MB of data, you can only restore that data to a volume that is 10 GB or larger. The restore operation will fail if the destination volume is smaller than the source volume. We recommend that you restore data to a volume that is at least 1 MB larger than the source volume. Also, ensure that the sector size on the destination disk and the source disk match.

You must select the Volume Level Browse option in the Browse Options dialog box before starting the restore. By default, this option is not selected.

  • Do not run Volume Level restore if the destination volume contains OS files.
  • You must present the volumes of a clustered shared disk as local disks to perform restores.
  • Make sure that the destination volume is not busy as it must be unmounted to perform restores.

Performing an Out-of-Place Restore

You can restore volume level data to the following locations:

  • Different volume on the same computer from which the data was backed up
  • Different computer

Keep in mind that the destination computer must reside in the same CommCell as the client whose volume was backed up.

If no destination volume is specified, the system attempts to restore to a volume on the destination client with the same name as the one being restored. If no such volume exists, the restore operation fails.

Restoring to a Different Location on the Same Client

File Level

If the Image Level backup contains metadata information, you can perform a File Level restore operation on the Image Level Backup. By default, files are restored to the same folder. However, while restoring the files related to system state, it is recommended to perform an Out-of-Place restore. This will ensure that the existing files are not overwritten.

You can restore the file level data to the following locations:

  • Different folder on the same computer from which the data was backed up

Managing Restore Jobs

Once you initiate the restore operation, a restore job is generated in the Job Controller. Jobs can be managed in a number of ways. The following sections provide information on the different job management options available:

Controlling Jobs

The following controls are available for running jobs in the Job Controller window:

Suspend

Temporarily stops a job. A suspended job is not terminated; it can be restarted at a later time.

Resume

Resumes a job and returns the status to Waiting, Pending, Queued, or Running. The status depends on the availability of resources, the state of the Operation Windows, or the Activity Control setting.

Kill

Terminates a job.

Suspending a Job

  1. From the Job Controller of the CommCell Console, right-click the job and select Suspend.
  2. The job status may change to Suspend Pending for a few moments while the operation completes. The job status then changes to Suspended.

Resuming a Job

  1. From the Job Controller of the CommCell Console, right-click the job and select Resume.
  2. As the Job Manager attempts to restart the job, the job status changes to Waiting, Pending, or Running.

Killing a Job

  1. From the Job Controller of the CommCell Console, right-click the job and select Kill.
  2. Click Yes when the confirmation prompt appears if you are sure you want to kill the job. The job status may change to Kill Pending for a few moments while the operation completes.

Startup Options The Startup Options are used by the Job Manager to set priority for resource allocation. This is useful to give higher priority to certain jobs. You can set the priority as follows:
  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client>.
  2. Right-click  Image Level, point to All Tasks and then click Browse Backup Data.
  3. In the Browse Options dialog box, click OK.
  4. In the  Client Browse tab, select the data to be restored and click Recover all Selected.

Copy Precedence By default, the system retrieves data from the storage policy copy with the lowest copy precedence. If the data was pruned from the primary copy, the system automatically retrieves data from the other copies of the storage policy in the lowest copy precedence to highest copy precedence order. Once the data is found, it is  retrieved, and no further copies are checked.

You can retrieve data from a specific storage policy copy (Synchronous Copy or Selective Copy). If data does not exist in the specified copy, the data retrieve operation fails even if the data exists in another copy of the same storage policy. Follow the steps given below to retrieve the data from a specific storage policy copy:

  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client>.
  2. Right-click Image Level, point to All Tasks and then click Browse Backup Data.
