Restore by Jobs

The Restore By Jobs feature provides the facility to select a specific backup job to be restored. This method of restoring data is considerably faster as it reads continuously on the tape and retrieves the data and does not depend on the indexing subsystem to get the seek offsets on the media.

This feature can be used in different scenarios such as the following:

  • To restore point-in-time data associated with a specific backup job, such as full, incremental, differential, etc.
  • To restore CommServe DR data for the disaster recovery or for creating a hot-site purposes.
  • To restore multiplexed data from the same client.
Consider the following when restoring by jobs:
  • Run a restore by jobs whenever you want to restore the entire contents of the job.
  • Avoid modifying the contents of any associated subclients since this may result in the retrieval of older data.
  • Avoid running restores by jobs for jobs associated with the default subclient. If you do this, the entire contents of the computer will be restored. As such, this may cause problems (e.g., the computer might run out of space) or produce undesirable results (e.g., you might end up restoring operating system files or directories that you really do not want to restore).
  • If you backed up the data after selecting the Use Traditional Backup for Logs check box, then try to restore it by selecting the job type as Log Incremental (and not Snap Backup).

Use the following steps to restore data by jobs:

  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click the level whose data you want to browse, click View and then click Backup History.
  2. From the Backup History Filter window, select the filter options, if any, that you want to apply and click OK.
  3. From the Backup Job History window, right-click the backup job that need to be restored and select Browse and Restore.
  4. Click View Content.
  5. From the Browse window, select the required content to be restored and click Recover All Selected.
  6. Select the desired restore options and click OK.

List Media

Use List Media to predict media required for the following operations:
  • To restore data associated with a specific backup set, subclient or instance
  • To restore the index required to browse data associated with a specific backup set or subclient
  • To restore a specific file (or specific files and folders)
  • To restore data associated with a specific job
The list media operation can be performed for instances, backup sets, and subclients. The following sections describe each of these methods.

Listing Media for a Backup Set or Instance

  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click the instance for which you wish to list media, click All Tasks and then click Browse and Restore.
  2. From the Browse and Restore Options dialog box, if required, select one of the following options:
    • Click Latest Backup to list media associated with the most recent data protection cycle.
    • Click Time Range to list media associated with data protection operations up to the specified date and time range.
  3. Click List Media.
  4. The appropriate media is listed in the Media dialog box.

Listing Media from Backup History

  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click the instance for which you wish to list media, point to View and then click Backup History.
  2. Select the required options on the Backup History Filter dialog box and click OK.
  3. Right-click the desired job for which you want to list the media, and then click View Media.
  4. The appropriate media is listed in the Media Used by Job ID dialog box.

Manage 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:

Restarting Jobs

Jobs that fail to complete successfully are automatically restarted based on the job restartability configuration set in the Control Panel. Keep in mind that changes made to this configuration will affect all jobs in the entire CommCell.

To Configure the job restartability for a specific job, you can modify the retry settings for the job. This will override the setting in the Control Panel. It is also possible to override the default CommServe configuration for individual jobs by configuring retry settings when initiating the job. This configuration, however, will apply only to the specific job.

Restore jobs for this Agent are resumed from the point-of-failure.

Configure Job Restartability at the CommServe Level

  1. From the CommCell Console toolbar, click Control Panel.
  2. Under the System section, click Job Management.
  3. Click Job Restarts tab and select a Job Type.
    • Select Restartable to make the job restartable.
    • You can change the value for Max Restarts to change the maximum number of times the Job Manager will try to restart a job.
    • You can change the value for Restart Interval (Mins) to change the time interval between attempts for the Job Manager to restart the job.
  4. Click OK.

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. Once completed, the job status will change to Killed and it will be removed from the Job Controller window after five minutes.

Resubmitting Jobs

If a restore job fails to complete successfully, you can resubmit the job without the need to reconfigure the original job's restore options using the Resubmit Job feature. When a job is resubmitted, all the original options, restore destinations, and other settings configured for the job remain in tact.

Resubmit a Restore Job

  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click a client computer whose data recovery history you want to view, click View, then click to view a job history.
  2. From the Job History Filter dialog box, select Restore.
    • If you want to view more advanced options for restores, from the Job History Filter, select Restore, then click Advanced.
    • From the Data Recovery History Advanced Filter select the destination client computer of the restores you would like to view, then click OK.
  3. The system displays the results of the options you selected in the Data Recovery Job History window.
  4. Right-click on any job, and select Resubmit.
  5. Select the job options.
  6. Click OK.

Additional Restore Options

Several additional options are available to further refine your restore operations. The following table describes these options, as well as the steps to implement them.

Be sure to read the overview material referenced for each feature prior to using them.

Option Description Related Topics
Startup Options

The Job Manager will use the startup priority setting when allocating the required resources. This is useful if you have jobs that are very important and must complete, or jobs that can be moved to a lower priority.

  1. From the CommCell Browser, click Client Computers | <agent> | <instance name>. The default and other subclients (if available) are displayed on the right-hand windowpane.
  2. From the CommCell Browser, right-click the instance that contains the data you want to restore. Click All Tasks and then click Browse Backup Data.

Refer to Job Priority and Priority Precedence.
Copy Precedence

When you select Restore from copy precedence option, the system recovers or retrieves data from the selected storage policy copy (Synchronous Copy or Selective Copy). If data does not exist in the specified copy, the data recovery or retrieve operation fails even if the data exists in another copy of the same storage policy.

When cleared, (or by default) the system recovers or retrieves data from the storage policy copy with the lowest copy precedence. If the data was pruned from the primary copy, the system automatically recovers or retrieves 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 recovered or retrieved, and no further copies are checked.

  1. From the CommCell Browser, click Client Computers | <agent> | <instance name>. The default and other subclients (if available) are displayed on the right-hand windowpane.
  2. From the CommCell Browser, right-click the instance that contains the data you want to restore. Click All Tasks and then click Browse Backup Data.

  8. Click OK.
Refer to Recovering Data From Copies.
Data Path Options

Data Recovery operations use a specific data path (Library, MediaAgent, Drive Pool, and Drive) to perform the restore operations as configured in the CommCell. By default, the system automatically identifies the data path for the restore operations. You can change the data path at the restore level by selecting a specific MediaAgent, library, drive pool or drive in the Advanced Restore Options dialog.

The following are some of the important situations where you may need to change the data path:

  • To free heavily loaded resources such as MediaAgents and libraries.
  • A library suffers severe hardware damage and you need to move its media to a different library in order to access data secured by data protection operations.
  • A drive pool within a library is being used much more frequently than another, and a storage policy copy from the more active drive pool can be assigned to the less active one.
  1. From the CommCell Browser, click Client Computers | <agent> | <instance name>. The default and other subclients (if available) are displayed on the right-hand windowpane.
