Retired Harware and Restore by Query


DP 9.03, single cell

Our IDB has retired hardware listed from older backups but the Restore by Query wizard will only restore to existing harware, so it's not possible. How can this be overcome please?

Older backups are the most likely to require Restore by Query.

Thank you.

  • omnidb -filesearch lets you use the old hostname so that's best possible solution eg: 

    C:\>omnidb -filesearch dim2k12r2n1.dp90.dplab.local / test_client.exe
    ObjType ObjName
    Description PathName
    WinFS dim2k12r2n1.dp90.dplab.local:/C
    "C:" /test_client.exe
