How to run bprestore from the command line to restore information to an alternate path and/or client

Solution



Overview:
Provide detailed instructions on how to initiate a restore via the command line to an alternate client and/or location using the bprestore command.


LOCATION:
for Window : \Veritas\Netbackup\bin
for Unix:  /usr/openv/netbackup/bin
the command can be initiated from the client (destination) or from the master server

SYNTAX:

For same client:
>bprestore -B -L <progress log> -R <RenameFileList> -f <RestoreFileList>

For different client:
>bprestore -B -L <progress log> -C <sourceClient> -D <destinationClient> -R <RenameFileList> -f <RestoreFileList>

OPTIONS:
<progress log> = location of the restore progress log including filename
<RenameFileList> = full path of a text file with rename instruction
<RestoreFileList> = list of file to be restored

*Content of the rename file (one entry for each file or directory to be renamed, ensure each line to end with a return):

Line 1: change [originalfile] to [newfile] (return)
Line 2:  empty line

EXAMPLES:
To restore all files under D:\Projects to the same client at E:\Restorefiles\

Step1: create the rename file,, named "rename.txt", located: c:\temp\rename.txt, put the following entry in the file:
----------------------------------------------------------
change /D/Projects to /E/Restorefiles/
Note: make sure to hit return above to start a new empty line here
----------------------------------------------------------
Step2: create the restore filelist, named "filelist.txt", located c:\temp\filelist.txt, put the following entry in the file:
-----------------------------------------------------------
/D/Projects
-----------------------------------------------------------
Step3: run the restore command from the client:
>bprestore  -L  /C/temp/restore.log  -R  /C/rename.txt -f /C/filelist.txt
