Restoring Solaris SAN-attached volumes if they are left unmapped

The following information applies only to Solaris clients.

After a Solaris system is recovered using the dissimilar disk restore feature, you may need to perform the following procedure for SAN-attached volumes that were left unmapped (marked not to restore).

To restore Solaris SAN-attached volumes if they are left unmapped

  1. Determine the differences between the current and previous vfstab files:

    % diff /etc/vfstab /etc/vfstab.old.bmr.dmr
  2. Review the differences.

  3. Copy the entries about the SAN devices from the /etc/vfstab.old.bmr.dmr file. Add them to the /etc/vfstab file or uncomment the corresponding lines that are commented out when vfstab was merged.

  4. Mount the file systems that are on the SAN.

  5. Manually restore the SAN file systems using the NetBackup Backup, Archive, and Restore interface.
