  • Requirements for raw backup and restore is documented in Admin Guide 1 under the topic
    UNIX raw partitions.

    Save a copy of the partition table before a raw partition backup is performed.
    Retain the copy for reference. To restore the raw partition, make sure that a device
    file exists. Also, the partition where the table is restored must be large enough or
    the results of the restore are unpredictable.

     

    And even more info under this topic:

    Consider the following items when creating UNIX raw partition backups.

    Please read through this section and let us know if all requirements were followed.

    • Ensure that the client's server list contains entries for the master server and any media servers that can be used during a backup or restore.

    • Examine the status or the progress log on the client for messages on why the restore failed. Also, check the All Log Entries report on the server.

    • Check ownership and permission on directories where files are restored.

    • Correct the problems that you find and retry the restore.

    • If you tried to restore files from a FlashBackup backup after a NetBackup patch was installed, the patch may not have been installed properly. Follow the installation instructions in the patch readme file and make sure the libsfr.so file is copied as instructed.
