Missing database files from restore
Please don't laugh but I need to restore some cold database files using Netbackup 3.4
Yes, I have NetBackup 3.4 running on a Master server and a client (both Solaris 2.6).
I'm being told by the DBAs that the *.dbf files they want restoring are in the following locations...
But when I go to the Restore window of the Java GUI I cant see any /oradata/ACTEST folders under /u05 or /u06.
I'm no Solaris expert but the database files must be somwhere but just not on the backup. (I don't have access to the client to check there location but I have been told it is correct.)
I can see the location is specified in the backup policy as ....
There is a shutdown script that runs on the client before the backup is started so the .dbf files are stopped for backup.
And the exclude_list on the client does not contain these folders.
Any ideas what the problem could be?
