Pushing, from master, a restore to a Recovery Storage Group on clustered MS Exchange 2007 works fine.
But, client cluster member node pulling restore down fails with status 37 "operation requested by an invalid server", but I do have altnames entries allowing both cluster member nodes to browse and select for restore catalog entries for the database backups taken via the clustered instance of MS Exchange.
We've tried to follow:
Do "database agents" need additional "server=" entries in bp.conf on the master of medias, and/or do the media servers need to be registered "server=" on the client instead of just "media_server=" ? Any advice? Thanks.
Did you figured out what was wrong?
I had the same problem. I added node names and cluster name to netbackup server list in "Backup, Archive and Restore" GUI.Then I created 3 files in .../netbackup/db/altnames/ (Linux) allowing restores from different clients:
File 1 name: <node1_name> containing:
File 2 name: <node2_name> containing:
File 3 name: <cluster_name> containing:
After all I was able to list backups in BAR GUI, but I was not able to initiate restore. Restore job failed at the very begining. I need to resolve that one remaining issue.
That is pretty inconvenient in my opinion. Is there any workaround?
(i.e. adding cluster node names to the media or master server list)
