Recover of Catalog to a different server/Netbackup instance
Software: Netbackup 6.0MP4
Server: Linux OS
I currently have Netbackup performing nightly backups on an Oracle 10g instance.
In trying to make my disaster recover more robust (read: incase my server room burns down) I have set up a dupilcate system in another building under a different subnet. In trying to make sure that I have all that I need to bring our systems back in an emergency, I have set another instance of Netbackup.
I was hoping to to restore my catalog backups from my production Netback onto this DR Netbackup instance but I am not understanding how this is performed.
Ultimately I was hoping to get the catalog(s) restored so I could restore the Hot backups of my Oracle instance to this DR system.
Has anyone attempted this before and would be willing to give me some pointers.
My experience with Netbackup is limited to installation and configuring backups. I do not have any experience (yet) with restoring catalogs or hot backups.
The pervious admin here warned me that hot restores are tricky (there was an accident were data was restored to the production server and not the intended test server)
Thank you for your time,
