How to Restore/View Old Files
Posted on 2011-10-03
We have some really old DLT tapes with data that was backed up with a different version of BE, and of course our BE server has changed a few times since then.
My question is: How can I do a redirection restore with these tapes if we are missing tapes out of the set ?
Everytime I try to do this, I start to inventory/catalogue the tapes, and I will eventually get an error that certain media mounted, but not found - it expected one media & didnt get it - and the restore job fails every time. I have 200 tapes and I cant restore a single one - which tells me Im doing something wrong.
Surely its possible to recover stuff if youre missing tapes in a set - what happens if a company has a real disaster and needs to salvage what is left ?
FYI - I know very little about BE - so be kind ;) As Always - Thx
