10 digit directory

This issue has been solved. See solution.

'AccountingToTape' is probably the policy name, right?

To find the Policy Type, navigate to the images folder as per TN

Find the client name for which images were imported (PLEASE NOTE correct spelling of client name). Open 10-digit sub-directory (if there's more than one, open the newest one).

Here you will find image files with their header files. Header files have no extention, in this format: <policy-name>_<10-digit-number>_<sched-type>

e.g FileSystemBackups_1285351605_FULL

Open this file with Notepad.

Look for CLIENT_TYPE in this file (about line number 9)

In my header file, the line looks like this:


This CLIENT_TYPE is actually the Policy Type. A few examples of Policy Type numbers:

0 = Standard
4 = Oracle
6 = Informix-On-BAR
7 = Sybase
10 = NetWare
13 = MS-Windows
14 = OS/2
15 = MS-SQL-Server
16 = MS-Exchange-Server
19 = NDMP

Once you have found the policy type in the header file, try to browse again. Use the two TN posted bySuryakiran21 as guidelines to specify search criteria in BAR GUI.

What is the use of this 10 digit data or sub  directory?

 I mean to ask how this is created.

This is created when a backup is run, it splits the backups by time into these folders - it makes it easier to load ( browse) if there are 1000s of backups over different times by putting them in these "folders/directories".

The 10 digit sub dir is the first 4 digits of the ctime, followed by six zeros.


From my test server

root@womble womble $ pwd
root@womble womble $ ls -al
total 10
drwxr-xr-x   3 root     root         512 May  8 11:56 .
drwxr-xr-x   4 root     root         512 May  2 20:45 ..
drwxr-xr-x   4 root     root        2560 May 19 17:01 1368000000
The 1368000000 dir will contain all backup catalog info for backups that have a ctime starting 1368
This dir is automaticlly created when a backup runs in the time period for the dir.  For example:
1369000000 = Sun May 19 22:46:40 2013
So, as soon as a backup runs on or after this time, the dir 1369000000 will be created, providing it is before
1370000000 = Fri May 31 12:33:20 2013
If it is after this second time, then no 1369000000 dir would be created.
The time interval between dirs, s can be seen is 1 million seconds.  It is used to simply sub-divide the catalog information and make thing more manageable.

1370000000 should a collect images between some times.
