Media Recovery - Disk Media
In a disaster recovery situation, you can recover the data on disk media's using one of the following ways:
Moving Mount Paths
If the data is inaccessible from a mount path, copy the CV_MAGNETIC folder on the disk volumes to a different location and modify the mount path’s data path to the new location.
When you modify the mount path, make sure the following:
- The folder or file structure within the CV_MAGNETIC folder must be maintained in the new location.
- The file system (NTFS, EXT3, etc.) in the new disk volume should be the same.
For instructions, see Modifying the Mount Path.
Re-establishing Data Paths for Shared Disk Folders
After recovering a MediaAgent with a new name, add the new MediaAgent’s data path to the shared disk device.
For instructions, see Sharing Mount Paths.
Note: If the disk media is not available, you can migrate the data from a secondary copy to a local mount path in the MediaAgent. For instructions, see Migrating a Disk Library - Using a Local Mount Path.
