BAR - how do i change the destination to my client; instead of the Master server

Hi all,

referring to the screenshot attached, how do i point the the location of restoration to my client host; namely SQL?

 I have changed the source and destination clients for restore to my client (namely SQL) under specify netbackup machine and policy type; but when I clicked browse after selecting the 2nd radio butto: Restore everything to a different location; the location always pointed back to the Master server.

Is there a way to have the file / folder location points to the default client? because we need to restore the files back to a specific folders; without pointing to these folder, it is impossible to have the restoration done to the correct destination

I tried the restoration; even if the destination pop-up windows pointed to the master; however the file requested for restoration still being copied to the client sql; 

All my Master, Media and Client are installed with Netbackup 7.0

 

thanks

yl

As sql obviously has a client installed on it I would suggest that you use the source and destination client as sql when selecting the options in the BAR GUI.

You then just type in the location on that server where you want to restore the files to (D:\restore\123454 or similar)

Alternatively open the BAR GUI on the sql server itself when you will be able to browse to the local file system and select where to restore the data to

If you use a UNC path with another server as the client then the NetBackup Client service on that server would need to be set to use an account with full rights to that UNC path

Hope this helps

This is unfortunately a known problem with BAR GUI.

You should know where files should go and simply type in the destination.

Hi Marianne

thanks for the reply; tried typing the UNC (\\sql\restore) but getting the error below; wondering if we need to attach any windows permission (such as backup operator) to the folder?

Can you change the BAR property and policy info? so you can change your destination.

Hi all,

the issue has been resolved; you just have to type c:\<name of the destination file> as even though the GUI interface points back to the Master server; but in actual facts, it redirect the restoration to client as set in specify netbackup machine and policy type
