Hi Experts,

I have recent incremental backups on july 5 and july 4 and full backup on july 3. I want july 5 version of VM. How do i select the vmdk file in java BAR console in netbackup. Can i select only july 5 incremental(such that it will automatically select july 3 full backup) or do i have to restore july 3 full backup first continued by july 5 incremental backup.

Thanks in advance.

Just select the incremental and restore it. NetBackup figures out what to do.

Select 'inclusively' the most recent full before 5th July, and then 'shift select' the 5th July... and so a range of dates is selected... and restore... and NetBackup will work out what to do.

I doesn't allow me to select both. It allows me select either full backup(July 3) or incremental backup(July 5).

Apologies - but I don't have a vSphere based test system to hand.

Can anyone else help?
