Netbackup 7.5.0.3 - restore a file to Solaris from Linux source

Created: 07 Feb 2013 • Updated: 04 Mar 2013 | 7 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello,

I am trying to restore a file to Solaris 10 that was backed up from a Red Hat 5.8  system. The file restores ok but the jobs exits with an error complaining about a security file. What can I do about this?  Eventually the Solaris box will be replaced by Linux, but for now I need this to complete without errors.

See output below.

Thanks.

hi,

11:55:11 (803854.001) (803854.001) INF - TAR RESTORED 1 OF 2 FILES SUCCESSFULLY

it restored only one file out of 2

what is the 2nd file name?

please enable tar log in client /usr/openv/netbckup/logs/tar and keep Verbose 5 .

please attach the log to this post.

The second file is the security file that the Solaris OS doesn't like.

 

.SeCuRiTy.12,

I found this thread earlier, but I was hoping that there was some kind of work-around so we don't get the error in the activity monitor.

Well the only way I know is to restore to same-kind server ;)

i agree with wr.

Adding to wr, restore to the volume of same filesystem type.

Sorry, you'll have to live with it.

To quote myself from the other thread:

Be sure to double check that the permissions on the restored file are acceptable to your legal team!
