Table: Enterprise Vault restore options

Item

Description

Terminate the database connections automatically when restoring selected databases. (Do not terminate database connections for Vault Store database.)

Takes the shared Enterprise Vault Directory, Monitoring, Auditing, FSA Reporting, and Fingerprint databases offline so Backup Exec can replace them during a restore job.

Note:

If you don't use this option, you must stop the Directory and Admin services on all Enterprise Vault servers before you restore the previously mentioned databases. In addition, you must also stop the Accelerator Manager server on all of the Compliance Accelerator servers and the Discovery servers. Only after you stop the Accelerator Manager can you restore the Customer, Configuration, and Custodian databases.

This option causes the Enterprise Vault Admin and Directory services on all related Enterprise Vault servers to terminate the connection to the Directory database that you restore.

It also terminates connections to the following:

  • Monitoring database

  • Audit, Fingerprint, and FSA Reporting databases (Enterprise Vault 8.x only)

  • Configuration, Customer, and Custodian databases

When the restore job completes, you must manually restart the Enterprise Vault Admin and Directory services on your Enterprise Vault server. After you restart the services, the services reconnect to the restored databases and Enterprise Vault begins archival operations again.

Note:

This option causes the Enterprise Vault Admin and Directory services on all Enterprise Vault servers to terminate their connections to the Directory database that you restore. It also terminates the connections to the Enterprise Vault Accelerator Manager database.

Leave the database ready to use; additional transaction logs or differential backups cannot be restored

Rolls back all uncompleted transactions when you restore the last database, differential, or log backup. After the recovery operation, the database is ready for use. If you do not select this option, the database is left in an intermediate state and is not usable.

If you select this option, you cannot continue to restore backups. You must restart the restore operation from the beginning.

Leave the database nonoperational; additional transaction logs or differential backups can be restored

Creates and maintains a standby database.

By using this option, you can continue restoring other backups sets for non-operational databases.

See your SQL documentation for information on standby databases.

Note:

Symantec recommends that you select all required backup sets when you run a single restore job for a vault store database. All required backup sets can include Full, Differential, and Incremental backup sets. The vault store database should also be restored in a ready-to-use state after the restore job completes.
