Restoring from Tape
Having a tough time figuring this one out. Two days ago we had 3 hard drives fail on our SAN, a dell tech came out to switch the drives for us and unplugged the wrong one which basically wiped out the SAN because it had no good drives to mirror too. I am doing restores from tape but i do not see some of the servers in the selection list for restore options that i used to have. Wondering if i am just using the wrong view option or do i need tapes from previous months?
For instance i am missing an FTP Server and 1SQL server as restore To options. I know they were being backed up to tape but i can not get those to show up in the selection list as restore options.
i do notice that 3-4 tapes in our autoloader show bad label.
Our monthly tapes go offsite, and we have daily and weekly schedules that get over written as needed.
Any guidance on what i might be overlooking would be of great help since the disaster we just had wiped out 12 vm's :)
let me know what other info you may need
