Here's the situation. We need to restore up to 26 DLT tapes containing 400GB data each, then search every document and file (including looking inside Word/Excel) for particular Keywords. We have 3 servers and 3 tape drives available for this process, which must be done ASAP. We were thinking of having the servers do restores, moving the data off to 3 workstations, then searching the files so the restores can run uninterrupted on the servers.

Has anyone done something like this before? Open to ideas/input. Thanks.

No, that's not acceptable. We need to locate all documents containing the 'keywords' between Date X and Date Y, which means those 26 tapes.

I was just asking !

I haven't done anything like what you're doing, but if I had to, I would do the same way you're doing . . .

I'd place all 3 servers Restoring to Workstations, that, are less loaded than the servers, and perform the search from there.

Best Regards !

This can be closed/deleted. We restored and searched each tape individually. The search tool we used is called CoolFind.
