Backup exec 20.6
I'm searching for files to restore from backup sets with Search:
Restore > Files, folders, or volumes >
Files and folders located through Search
I select the backup time range, path, and file or folder name.
No matter what I select, it goes through the motions of searching, but still says Found 0 matches.
In Configurations and Settings > Backup exec settings > Catalog,
"Use storage-based catalogs" is checked.
The backup sets are on a hard drive accessed over the network.
I cataloged all the backup sets, still does not find anything.
The catalogs are in C:\Program Files\Veritas\Backup Exec\Catalogs\ (server name)
How do I search for files to restore???
Did u try to perform catalog against the backup storage?
I think the backup didnt expire right?
If above cannot help, please try to uncheck this setting and perform catalog again. It will perform full catalog.
Have a look at the following articles:
The Backup Exec Search Wizard does only support specific types of data (veritas.com)
How to search a file from backup sets using the "Search" option (veritas.com)
Unable to search a folder name using "file or folder name" field (veritas.com)
Try not to specify all possible criteria but only one as per above examples and see if that brings something back.
If I have access to all existing B2D backup files, can I delete what's in the Catalog folder and inventory / catalog everything again without any loss of data or ability to do a future restore? We switched to a new server last year and that may have something to do with this, so I'd like to start over and catalog everything again from scratch.
I recataloged the F: drive without deleting the existing catalogs. Unchecked "Use storage-based catalogs".
Still not finding anything. I'm not getting an error message, just not finding anything.
Yes, I know how to search with wildcards - since RSTS/E on a PDP 11/34
