Restoring data by setting job properties

If you are familiar with Backup Exec, you can restore data by selecting the options you want to use in the restore job.

To restore data by setting job properties

  1. On the navigation bar, click the arrow next to Restore.

  2. Click New Restore Job.

  3. Select the data that you want to restore.

    To protect remote resources, you must install the Backup Exec Remote Agent for Windows Systems on the remote computer.

  4. To change or test the logon credentials for the selected resources, on the Properties pane, under Source, click Resource Credentials.

    See Changing and testing resource credentials for restore jobs.

  5. On the Properties pane, under Source, click Device.

    See Device options for restore jobs.

  6. On the Properties pane, under Settings, click General.

    See General options for restore jobs.

  7. Select any of the following additional configuration options for the restore job:

    To redirect this job to another system other than the one from which the data was backed up

    On the Properties pane, under Destination, do any of the following:

    • Click File Redirection to redirect file sets.

    • Click Microsoft SQL Redirection to redirect SQL Server sets to another SQL server.

    • Click Microsoft Exchange Redirection to redirect Exchange sets to another Exchange server.

    • Click Microsoft SharePoint Redirection to redirect SharePoint Server sets to another SharePoint server.

    • Click Oracle Redirection to redirect an Oracle instance to another Oracle server or to an alternate path on an alternate server or the original server.

    • Click DB2 Redirection to redirect DB2 instances or containers.

    • Click Enterprise Vault Redirection to redirect the Enterprise Vault or to redirect directory and monitoring databases.

    See Redirecting a restore job.

    To set advanced options for the restore job

    On the Properties pane, under Settings, click Advanced.

    See Advanced options for restore jobs.

    To specify a local network to be used for this restore job

    On the Properties pane, click Network and Security, and then enter the network information.

    See Specifying the restore network.

    To set commands to run before or after the job

    On the Properties pane, under Settings, click Pre/Post Commands.

    See Running pre and post commands for restore jobs.

    To restore other platform types or database agents, such as SQL, Exchange, or NetWare

    On the Properties pane, under Settings, select the platform type.

    Refer to the chapter or appendix for that item for instructions on completing the options.

    To have Backup Exec notify recipients when this job completes

    On the Properties pane, under Settings, click Notification, and then select each recipient to be notified when the job completes.

    See Assigning notification recipients for completed jobs.

    Depending on how the default settings for your software are configured, some of the options may or may not already be selected. You can override the default options by selecting or clearing items in these dialog boxes.

  8. If you want to run the job now, click Run Now. Otherwise, on the Properties pane, under Frequency, click Schedule to set the scheduling options you want to use.

    See Scheduling jobs.

  9. To monitor the job while it is processing, click Job Monitor, and ensure Show active jobs is selected under Current Job View Filters. You can review results of the restore job in the job's log.

    Depending on your file system environment, byte counts for restored data may not match the byte count recorded when the data was backed up. This is normal and does not mean that files were excluded in the restore job.

    See Troubleshooting restore issues.

  10. If you are restoring System State, restart your system before you restore more data.
