Has anyone had any luck using save set recover to recover data that was
backed up using a symbolic name, e.g. 'save -N name' from the client?
The local path on the client is /device/dir1/0001, and it's NFS mounted
to other clients as /archive/dir1/0001
On the client, I ran:
save -s server -b pool -N /archive/dir1/0001 /device/dir1/0001
and this works. Using nwrecover or browsable recover (CLI) recovers the
data just fine, and nsrinfo even reports all the data, too, beginning
with the /device/dir1/0001 path name, so that all works nicely, but ...
recover -s ssid -d /alternate_path
recover -s ssid /device/dir1/0001 -d /alternate_path
recover -s ssid
recovers 0 files. It mounts the tape, moves forward the correct number
of records, says it's going to recover the amount that I would expect
but then ends up recovering nothing. I can write to /device/dir1/0001 on
the local client.
Any ideas how to make this work? I'd really like to be able to customize
the name that NetWorker puts in the media database, but, of course, I
don't care if it recovers the data using the actual path name. However,
it doesn't look like it works with save set recover.
I even tried using the '-S' option on the save to force it not to index
anything. Again, save set recover will not work if I've used -N with the
I finally gave up and just ran:
save -s server -b pool -L /archive/dir1/0001
Save set recover is happy with that. Ditto for browsable recover.
