Need advice on restore method
Posted on 2008-10-08
We recently had some data corruption that is forcing me to pull backup from tape. I am running into a snag and it is probably just my lack of knowledge that is getting in the way. Backup run like this...
Starting on Friday evening 1700, our full backups of 10 servers kick off to backup-to-disk folders on my backup server. These full backups take the entire weekend to complete. Early Monday morning our Incremental backups begin and continue every morning thru Friday. On Friday we do a full backup to tape of all the data on the backup server including all the backup-to-dick folders from the week. So far after about 5 hours, I have been unable to restore data from a tape to a place recognized by Backup Exec as a valid resource with our over existing data in backup-to-disk folders. I think I may need to create separate devices, media sets and backup-to-disk folder specifically for restore but not really sure if that is the correct way to go.
If this make any since to anyone and you think you might have a solution please help.
