Re: Netbackup for IA64 / OpenVMS 8.3

Sorry Cass - wasn't up on reading forums.
That is exactly our "plan" if we lose a system disk. Create a new system install, install IP stack, Install netbackup, get it to recover. All of our netbackup tapes and netbackup servers are remote - usually same site - but not always.

That option also is why I always try to have a shadow copy of the disk so that if one disk dies I have a chance to get it replaced before the other one dies.

On systems that I don't have shadow license I actually create a backup image to a local disk as an emergency recovery.
