Problems with restore from make_tape_recovery

I have for test purpose of disaster tried to restore a HPUX 11.00 system with booting from the Ignite tape.

Result is that the system is without a functional NIS NFS and MAIL (and maybe many more) and for example files like /var/yp /var/mail is missing

Command used for backup:
make_tape_recovery -a tapedrive

during backup some warnings messages was issued that not all of the files in vg00 was backed up.

How do I avoid building the system up from scratch?
Should I have used the: -l inc_entire=vg00 parameter ?

Re: Problems with restore from make_tape_recovery

I would recommend using the GUI version of ignite. That way you get a visual display of which filesystems in vg00 are selected and which are not. You can then manually select any that you want to back up.

Re: Problems with restore from make_tape_recovery

Last thing is right.
Default is to tar on tape only the minimum to have a system running, if u want to backup all vg00 you must explicity indicate it.
You can use option:
-A to backup ALL vg00
-x inc_entire=vg00 same as before
-x inc_entire=/dev/dsk/c2t5d0 all on specified disk

Hope it helps

Re: Problems with restore from make_tape_recovery

u went wrong somewhere!!!!!!!!!


make_tape_recovery -I -x inc_entire=vg00

creates the recovery archive with full backup of vg00. I is for interactive restore.

You are probably using the options with make_recovery. both have different command options. Hope this helps

with best regards

Re: Problems with restore from make_tape_recovery

hi,

default make_tape_recovery does backup of: /dev/vg00/lvol1 /stand /dev/vg00/lvol3 / /dev/vg00/lvol7 /usr

if you desire backup entire vg00, use the
make_tape_recovery -x inc_entire=vg01
or
make_tape_recovery -A

if you want also backup another vg try:

make_tape_recovery -a /dev/rmt/0mn -A -v -x inc_entire=vg01

hope this will helps you
