Hi Pros,

We have a solaris node that have crashed. I need to restore it to another solaris node. How can I do this?
I tried the "set access" command on the TSMserver but I think I do something wrong. I also tried to use "q file fromnode=nodeA" command from nodeB. I got the output: "
No file spaces for node 'nodeB' were found on the server matching
the search criteria

I need a step by step guide how to do this.

Thanks!

easy dirty way
edit your dsm.sys and change node definitions to node a. as long as you recall the password set - or update nodea password password

Also could pass asnodename=nodea via a dsmj -asnodename, or dsmc -asnodename
But to do the above you'll need to grant proxy node target=nodea agent=nodeb

As an alternative to RecoveryOne, you can also use the -virtualnodename option. The advantage of that is that you don't need to grant access to the other node as with the -asnode. And more importantly, if you use passwordaccess=generate, it doesn't generate a new password on machineB if you edit dsm.sys with the other nodename which in turn requires you to re-enter the password when going back to machineA.

For some reason I always forget -virtualnodename.
Good catch Marc!
