To recover the catalog image file using bprecover -wizard
If the catalog backup resides on a specific disk type, you may have to fix media references in the disaster recovery file.
See About catalog recovery from disk devices in NetBackup 7.0 and 7.1.
To fix the disk media IDs in the disaster recovery file, run the following command:
nbcatsync -sync_dr_file DR_File
Replace DR_File with the full pathname to the disaster recovery file.
Welcome to the NetBackup Catalog Recovery Wizard! Please make sure the devices and media that contain catalog disaster recovery data are available Are you ready to continue?(Y/N)
Please specify the full pathname to the catalog disaster recovery file:
All media resources were located Do you want to recover the entire NetBackup catalog? (Y/N)
Catalog recovery is in progress. Please wait... This portion of the catalog recovery has completed.
C:\Program Files\VERITAS\NetBackup\Logs\user_ops\ Administrator\logs\Recover1123008613.log
If you fixed the disk media IDs in the DR file in step 2, you must fix the disk media ID references in the image headers. The image headers were recovered from the catalog backup.
To fix the disk media IDs in the image headers, run the following command:
nbcatsync -backupid image_id -dryrun
Replace image_id with the ID of the catalog backup. You can find the image ID of the catalog backup by examining the DR file.
You can now recover the NetBackup database if necessary.
NetBackup does not run scheduled backup jobs until NetBackup is stopped and restarted. Before restarting NetBackup, protect the media that contains the backups that were successfully performed after the catalog backup that was used to recover the catalog.
