How to backup and restore a clustered client using BMR



For clustered clients, the most effective backup strategy uses multiple policies.

Each node should have its own policy that backs up local file systems. Shared file systems should be backed up by the additional policies that back up the node that currently owns the resources.


To restore a clustered client:

1)Restore each node's local drives using BMR as normal (please review related content for instructions e.g. TECH52394).  The shared drive will be shown as restricted, this is correct, as BMR should not be used to recover shared drive information.

2) Start up the node. The cluster services will be offline initially. Start the cluster services to reattach to the shared resources.

3) Restore the shared drive information with a normal Netbackup restore procedure.
