Performing restores using the NetBackup for NetWare NonTarget browser

To understand how NetWare entities, such as Resources, TSAs, and files, appear in the Restore window, see How NetWare entities appear in the NonTarget browser.

By default, the Restore window shows the files and folders that where backed up from the time of the last full backup to the most recent backup. If a client has been backed up using more than one policy, the default display starts with last full backup that occurred on the earliest date. For example, if one policy's most recent full backup occurred on February 2 and the second policy's most recent full backup occurred on February 10, the Restore window shows files ranging from February 2. To change the default range, see Using search backups to narrow parameters.

The following steps are for restoring normal backups. For information on restoring data from Backup Exec, see Restoring from Backup Exec images. To restore True Image Backups, see Restoring a true image of a directory.

To restore data using the NetBackup for NetWare NonTarget browser

  • On the NetBackup for NetWare NonTarget Browser, choose Actions > Restore > Restore from Normal Backups.

If files or folders do not display in the Restore window, it can be due to one of the following:

Perform Default Search is not enabled. In this case, start a search manually by clicking Search Backups on the Actions menu. Or to display the files in a backup, click a backup image.

The NetBackup server does not have any backups of files for your NetWare Client. Ensure that the client is connecting to the correct server (see Setting Server configuration options). Also, ensure that you are using the correct client name (see Setting general configuration options). You can also refer to the title bar, which displays the names of the client and the server the client is connected to. If these settings are correct and you believe there are backups available, contact your NetBackup system administrator.

  • Click the selection circle next to the data you want to restore. For example, you can select to restore an entire volume by clicking on the selection circle next to the volume name. If you only want to restore directories or files, you must expand the volume, and then select the specific directories or files you want to restore.
