start multiple restore jobs from a policy

I have to start multiple restore jobs from same policy. This will include multiple folders which are in different medias.

Can any one guide me to accomplish this.

Netbackup Version = 8.1.2

Media used = LTO6

Dell TL2000

Let me know if you need any information.

Thanks in advance

Open multiple window panes, and do all your selections and get to the point of finally requesting each restore... and only when all selections are ready, then finally hit "go" for all concurrent restores... and NetBackup will automatically work out for you which are multi-plex restores, and NetBackup will automatically concurrently multi-plex restore any jobs that it can - as long as you request all of the concurrent restores together within a short enough time window, the default of which is, I think, 180 seconds (i.e. three minutes).

Agree with @sdo - multiple windows should work!

Preview the media needed and ensure it is all on site or on disk!

One thing - if you are doing multiple restores that MIGHT use the same images - you might need to combine them, otherwise they will fight for th source images.

You CAN update the bp.conf on your master to extend the timeout, it impact EVERY restore though!

I was wrong, the default for the multiplex restore delay is 30 seconds:

updating the value of multiplex restore delay via the GUI - the max will be 600.

You can manually set it within the bp.conf, I have one I use 1800.

Re: start multiple restore jobs from a policy

whats 30 minutes between friends?

I found that with a TON of files, after the timeout, the restore starts, whether it has completed determining what to restore. After having a restore complete successfully but NOT restoring several directories, that was the response from veritas. 

Also, found out how important to check the output of the restore.

15:26:41 (2613001.001) INF - TAR EXITING WITH STATUS = 0
15:26:41 (2613001.001) INF - TAR RESTORED 451 OF 452 FILES SUCCESSFULLY
15:26:41 (2613001.001) INF - TAR KEPT 1 EXISTING FILES
15:26:41 (2613001.001) INF - TAR PARTIALLY RESTORED 0 FILES

15:26:41 (2613001.001) Status of restore from copy 1 of image created Wed Oct 30 18:02:49 2019 = the requested operation was successfully completed

Re: start multiple restore jobs from a policy

Sorru guys, I was really got busy in my work that I forgot to update this thread.

Also one thing I forgot to mention, that the data which I am trying to restore, was not backup using multiplexing, it does backup using traditional method, serially not parallel . So I am afraid it will not be restoring using multiplexing resotre.

Is there any way in which I can execute multiple restore from the same policy?

 

Thanks in Advance Smiley Happy
