Hi All,

We are using NBU 7.7 to backup Sybase databases. 

Now we are doing restore tests of Sybase databases. We can restore database with same database name with the following LOAD command.

load database mydb from "sybackup::SYBASE.mydb.D.0.14693.07-08-2015.09:29:37 -SERV saturn"

go 

But we want to restore the database with different name. source db name is mydb and destination db name must be testdb. So what is the LOAD command for this operation?

Regards

I recommend to test it "off NetBackup" first, so from a simple native disk dump.

If it succeeds, the Restore via NetBackup should succeed, too.

There should be some prereq on Sybase side as I remember, like similar db segment structure etc.

Did you read the section about re-directed restore in the admin manual ?

Hi Nicolai

Yes, I read the guide. But  it is only talking about redirected restore to different client, not different database. I need to restore "mydb" database to "testdb" database.

So I think we need to do something with the LOAD command.

Regards.

Probably best to look for the answer in Sybase documentation or user forum.
It will be a Sybase parameter, not NBU.

Yes, I know this is a Sybase issue. But I am just wondering, if someone did this type of Sybase database restore?

Sybase questions is rare in this forum. I am afraid your question will remain unanswered.

If you dig up a answer elsewhere - please post it.

I presume it's not as simple as:

 

load database testdb from "sybackup::SYBASE.mydb.D.0.14693.07-08-2015.09:29:37 -SERV saturn"

go
