Restore of DFSR Data - SLOW
We backup DFS on our windows 2008 r2 server using the following method.
- It is possible to select individual DFSR folders (and files) for backup by using the following syntax:
- Shadow Copy Components:\User Data\Distributed File System Replication\DfsrReplicatedFolders\
Multiple streams (via NEW_STREAM) are supported for DFSR folders.
When I went to restore a single file yesterday, it took over 2 hours and 4 tapes to restore.
Since it sees DFS as "System State" and my entire System State is over 4TB (because of the DFS), I am assuming this is with it took 4 tapes and 2 hours.
My guess is that it had to "See" the entire system state, so that it could restore the 1 file.
Can anyone confirm or deny this? A Symantec KB link prehaps?
This is NetBackup 7.1
