Backup Exec 10.x directory restore from tape

Level 2


I am not at all familiar with Veritas/Symantec BE. We have picked up a nonbooting Dell server that had a degarded RAID. The client worked with Dell support to force a drive online and now the %sysroot%/system32 folder is empty. There are tapes with a month old backup, but no BE boot disk. I want to try and restore the missing directory from the tape(s).

I have a couple questions to determine if this even makes sense to try.

Can I download a bootable ISO to get me into a Veritas recovery environment? Will I need "catalog" files or otherwise not located on the tapes?

These answers should get us started.

Thanks in advance!

the recovery environment can be used only with the Intelligent disaster recovery disks. Otherwise if you have a full backup of data you can reuild the server and then install backup exec run an inventory and catalog and then run a restore for c: system state first restart the system and then restore other data if any, make sure before you run restore the server name is exactly same as it was.,
