FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER seems not to work
Ah yes, this should be trivial.
Let me explain the setup: master /media server lets call it central01 a robot and 10 drives using SSO which provides an ndmp storage unit, central01ndmp.
At remote01 we have another media server, windows, a robot 4 drives. 2 drives are attached to remote01 and a further 2 form another ndmp storage unit, client remote01ndmp say. No SSO. These drives are dedicated.
I run ndmp backups via media server remote01, from client remote01ndmp direct to the drives attached to remote01ndmp
Then I ship my tape to central01 and stick it in my robot. I can happily examine images on media without any intervention. But when i try restore it thinks it needs media server remote01. So I head to FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER = from to in bp.conf
is what I've used: these are the media servers in question.
The doc is conflciting: I've seen docs says the config re-read isnt needed , others say it is, but regardless of what I try the restore always tries to use remote01 media server.I've done -rereadconfig and I've manually stopped and started bprd via the gui.
I've used FORCE_RESTORE....historically with no issues, but no longer.
I havent restarted netbackup in its entirety: its rather inconvenient.
So forum folks, where am I going wrong?
In advance I thank you.
