NetBackup 7.5 full Catalog Recovery
First time performing full Catalog Recovery on Windows Netbackup 7.5 got into an odd issue. Built a new Windows 2003 x64 server in the lab with same SP as in production and installed NetBAckup 22.214.171.124 as in production, difference is in the tape hardware, single T10k, versus a silo in production.
Made a full Catalog backup with a DR file. Load the tape into the drive, added the tape to the CatalogBackup volume pool and successfully completed the Full Catalog Recovery from the Admin console GUI.
As a result – can see all the policies and looks like all the images were restored to …\NetBackup\db\images folder, but nothing else has been restored – NO storage devices, NO media, NO media servers …
So, the question is – what is changed in 7.5 – Do I have to perform any additional steps to recover EMM and NBDB to get the the same configuration as at the production site.
Anybody with NetBackup 7.5 Catalog Recovery ?
