Consider performing this recovery procedure only in the following scenarios:
The wizard restores whatever catalog images and configuration files are in the backup set identified by the disaster recovery file. If the disaster recovery file is from a full backup, all catalog images and configuration files are restored.
For an incremental backup, the wizard restores only catalog images and configuration the files that were changed since the previous backup. However, all catalog backup image files back to the last full catalog backup are automatically included in an incremental catalog backup. This operation allows for the complete restoration of all backup images by the Backup, Archive, and Restore user interface.
For a catalog that was backed up using the online method of NetBackup catalog image and configuration files, recovery in either of the following ways:
During a manual recovery, the wizard recovers only NetBackup policy files, NetBackup backup image files, and other NetBackup configuration files. It does not recover the NBDB (includes EMM) or BMR databases.
If the backup from which you recover is an incremental catalog backup and no catalog backup images exist in the catalog, the following occurs: only the NetBackup policy, backup image, and configuration files that are backed up in that incremental backup are restored. However, all of the catalog backup images up to the last full catalog backup are restored. So you can restore the rest of the policy, images, and configuration files from the Backup, Archive and Restore interface. If catalog backup images already exist, all files that were included in the related set of catalog backups are restored. The NBDB (includes EMM) and BMR (if applicable) databases must then be recovered by running the following:
bprecover -r -nbdb
Table: Files you recover when you recover catalog image files is a list of the files that you recover in a manual recovery (an asterisk indicates multiple files within that folder).
