We are currently not in need of restoring data however I wanted to step thru the process as we have recently redirected our backup jobs away from tape to a data domain array.
I noticed when going to the Job Setup tab > New restore job and selecting a server/share I do not see any backups for certain jobs that I know ran successfully. I contacted Symantec who advised to run a catalog job on each of the B2D's - approx 36 per device. I now see the most recent backup job completed since the catalog job was run but do NOT see previous backup jobs. Upon calling back Symantec support the tech advised I run the command "catrebuild -r" which actually is not the correct command - should be "catrebuildindex -r".
I would like to know when it is advised to run the caterebuildindex -r command and anything to be aware of when doing so.
