Help Restoring Catalog to BE 2010 R3

Created: 04 Feb 2014 • Updated: 05 Feb 2014 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I have lost the drive where my BE catalog resided.  I have been taking BE backups of the BE Catalog, so I do have a backup of the catalog from last week.

What steps should I follow to get the catalog restored to the new location?

A rapid response would be greatly appreciated.

Could you be more specifc as to the steps I need to follow to get my catalog restored from tape?  I do understand how to change the location of the catalog, but I have no catalog on disk at the moment because I lost the drive it was on.  If I change the path, will I then be able to restore the catalog using BackupExec?

1) inventory and catalog the tape that contains the catalog backup.

2) restore the catalogs to another directory

3) stop all the BE services

4) copy the catalogs to the Catalog directory under the BE installation directory.

5) start all the BE services and you should have all your catalogs back.

Thank you PKH, that is exactly what I was looking for.
