How frecover works, Internally at Operating system level.

In place of the expected file, I got another file with different name but with equal size and timestamp of 'restore-date' (The expected timestamp is 'backup-date'). The new name is not related to backup data (I am thinking it could be a temporary name used by frecover during restore).

My view is: The frecover has done the complete copy of contents, but it has missed out few post-data restore steps like naming the restored file with actual name and changing the timestamp as per the tape contents.

Details of the file from Index log:
96 1 /oracle/QT5/sapdata5/btabd_58
2139095040 1 /oracle/QT5/sapdata5/btabd_58/btabd.data58

Kindly help on this.

Shalom,

frecover, which has BTW been deprecated simply puts files back. It preserves permissions.

It only works with file systems and raw logical volumes the OS can see.

It is not a system backup tool.

Ignite is designed to back up a bootable configuration.

fbackup by default preserves file date/time stamps.

What command did you use to frecover? The sam interface also preserves this information by default.
