Hi,

I have a few questions about Ignite running on HP-UX 11.23 server and a Client HP-UX running 11.11.

I make backups of the client HP-UX system on a daily basis and want to restore from a certain backup, I am using the Ignite server to start the ignite restore but cant see how to select which backup to use?

Thanks
Julian

Do not put Ignite-UX with “backup” and “restore” in one
sentence. Ignite-UX is not considered for data backup, but rather for system
recovery!



That out of the way:  My HP-UX is very rusty and I've never used Ignite but from scanning the doc in the link above, I'm thinking that you need to create a Software Depot with your different images.  You should then be able to select which image you want to use to rebuild the machine.

Hopefully another Expert will be along soon that has more direct experience with Ignite.
