crcontrol command details

Hello All.

We have a backup solution based on two W2008R2 servers running NetBackup 7.0.1 with MSDP feature.

We have a critical mistake in build (wrong drive used for MSDP DB) and we are looking the way to sort it out. Symantec support denied us.

 

crcontrol command has three keys that could help us to backup this DB, reconfigure CR and restore DB to correct drive. But there is no info in --help about those keys (PSB). Checked deduplication/NetBackup commands manuals - no luck.

Could somebody provide a manual which describes those keys?

Thank you in advance.

 

D:\Program Files\Veritas\pdde>Crcontrol.exe --help
This is Crcontrol.exe, Version 6.6.0.47282

Thank you for reply.

We tested it and it works but we think that link is not a best idea because we have poor disk performance and we would like to eliminate any impact to disk.

We are going to do the following:

Log on to master & media. Run cmd.exe as Administrator. Browse to D:\Program files\Veritas\Netbackup\bin on both servers
Run bpdown -v -f on media first. Ensure that all proccess are stopped
Run the same command on master
On media run xcopy F:\backup\Databases E:\Database /E /I /H /K /O /X
Rename F:\backup\Databases to F:\backup\Databases_bak on media
Modify F:\Backup\etc\puredisk\contentrouter.cfg on media. Change "Path=F:\Backup\databases" row to "Path=E:\database" 
Modify F:\Backup\etc\puredisk\spa.cfg on media. Change "Path=F:\Backup\databases" row to "Path=E:\database" 
Modify PostgreSQL-8.3 service. Run regedit.exe on media. Browse to  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\postgresql-8.3.
Amend ImagePath key to "D:\Program Files\Veritas\pdde\pddb\bin\pg_ctl.exe" runservice -N postgresql-8.3 -D "E:\database\pddb\data" -w
Run bpup -v -f on master. 
Run bpup -v -f on media. 

 I will post an update here once implemented.

Thank you.

Not sure there is a manual

Not sure there is a manual with the options your looking for.
 
Windows also has a way to do symbolic links. Maybe try doing it that way?
