Mapping volumes

Use the following procedures to map volumes from the protected client to the restore configuration.

To initiate mapping for individual elements

  1. In the Table View or Disk View, right-click the element in the Original Volume Layout window.

  2. Choose the appropriate map option on the shortcut menu (the map options are context-sensitive ).

    The Mapping Wizard starts with one of the following contexts, as appropriate:

    Map

    The Mapping Wizard starts for the selected element (except main element disk groups, disks, volumes, volume groups, and so on).

    Map Volume

    The Volume Mapping Wizard appears.

    Map Volume Group

    The Volume Group Mapping Wizard appears.

    Map Disk

    If the element is a disk in a disk group or a volume group, the disk group or volume group wizard appears. Then the volume mapping wizard for each volume appears (the required properties are set). The Disk Mapping Wizard appears if the element is as follows:

    • A disk that is not in a disk group

    • Not part of a volume group (AIX)

    • None of its volumes span other disks (mirrors, stripes).

    Then all the volumes and the file systems are populated into the target disk. The mapped state are set for both source elements and target elements (disks, volumes, and file systems)

    Map Disk Group

    The Disk Group Mapping Wizard appears.

To unmap an element

  1. In the Table View or Disk View, right-click the element you want to unmap in the New Volume Layout window.

  2. Click the unmap option on the shortcut menu. The unmap options are context-sensitive and include Unmap, Unmap Disk, Unmap Volume, and others.

    The element is unmapped, and the values of used and free space change accordingly.

To change the system volume size on Windows

  1. In the Table View or Disk View, right-click the volume in the New Volume Layout window.

  2. Click Change Size on the shortcut menu.

  3. In the Windows System Volume Size Change dialog box, change the size of the volume.

  4. Change the size of the volume.

To restrict a disk or remove restriction

  1. In the Table View or Disk View, right-click the disk in the New Volume Layout window.

  2. Click either Restrict or Remove Restriction on the shortcut menu to specify the following:

    • Restrict prevents a disk to be used as a target for mapping. Also, it is not formatted, and the volume groups or volumes on it are not created or restored.

    • Remove Restriction removes the restriction so the disk can be used as a target. If the disk is mapped, it is formatted and its volumes and volume groups are created and restored.

To promote a disk to dynamic on Windows

  1. In the Table View or Disk View, right-click the disk in the New Volume Layout window.

  2. Click Promote to Dynamic on the shortcut menu.

To add or remove a Windows system mirror

  1. If the disk is a basic disk, promote it to a dynamic disk

  2. In the Table View or Disk View, right-click the element in the New Volume Layout window.

  3. Click either Add Mirror or Remove Mirror on the shortcut menu.

  4. If you add a mirror, in the Windows Add Mirror to System Volume dialog box, select the disk to use for the mirror.

  5. If you add a mirror, select the disk to use for the mirror.
