[rear-users] BACKUP=DP questions

Hi again,

Just tested BACKUP=DP on SAN booting, multipathed, partitioned, md-raided layout with dataprotector restore from SAN tape from VLS library – works as charm!
20 minutes between booting into rear and login prompt on recovered system - and no cheating.

Regards

Pavol

Hi,

Thanks. OK, the operation is nice, running restore right now. EXCLUDE options are not recognized, but if filesystem object name from selected dataset does not match recovered filesystem, it is skipped – so its safe.

One minor bug discovered though: sparse files are not treated. Fixed by adding '-sparse' to omnir command in 'restore/DP/default/40_restore_with_dp.sh':
/opt/omni/bin/omnir -filesystem ${host_fs} "${label}" -full -session ${SessionID} -tree ${fs} -into /mnt/local -sparse -device ${Device} -target `hostname` -log >&8

I’ll create github bug for this later today

Great tool!

Regards,

Pavol

cat /usr/share/rear/restore/DP/default/*

to get an idea how it works.

It the restore fails you still get a chance to use the GUI
