[62:1009] No objects to restore. Session will be aborted!

Hi Guys,

 

So here is my setup:

- Win 2012 R2 CM

- D2D  HP StorageWorks D2D4106fc - G02

- MSL MSL G3 Series 

- DP 9.1

 

Here is how we do our backups:

- Daily inc2 from Monday to Thursday on D2D, Data and Catalog protected 4 weeks

- Inc1 on Friday on D2D , Data and Catalog protected 4 weeks

- In the morning, DP take the sessions of the last 24 hours and copy them to a tape on the MSL , Data and Catalog protected 4 weeks

 

- Full on first friday of the month on the D2D. Once finished, sessions are copied on a tape on the MSL.

- If its first Friday of January, April, July or October, it’s a Quarterly backup. Catalog is protected 52 weeks and data 364 weeks.

- If its first Friday of any other months, it’s a Monthly backup. Catalog is protected 52 weeks and data 52 weeks.

 

Here is the problem:

I am trying to restore this file that was corrupted on January 21st.

The most recent copy that we have of this file is on a Quarterly backup made on first Friday of January.

 

Here is the file I try to restore: http://i.imgur.com/Ly3d3UJ.png

You can see it was backup on January 2nd : http://i.imgur.com/B9A0bNt.png

You can see the backup and modify time: http://i.imgur.com/SbgJZBz.png

Here is the media tab… all in the MSL ready to restore: http://i.imgur.com/XkZ12gh.png

Here is the copies tab http://i.imgur.com/sVIZET8.png

And the properties http://i.imgur.com/TehN6zb.png

 

Here is the result I get… http://i.imgur.com/Xej74qt.png

[62:1009]             No objects to restore. Session will be aborted!

 

I tried with other files from other servers that are backed up on the same tapes…

It’s not the first time I get that error but I usually was able to get around it if there was still a copy on the D2d or something…

 

I need to be able to restore files that we put on tape…

Why does it tell me there is no object to restore when I obviously selected one ?

 

Can you help me ?

  • If the backup was done on Jan 21 or before, with 4 weeks protection, then, the Protection has probably expired, and Daily Maintenance has removed the catalog to save on disk space.  Get teh session ID of the backup you are trying to restore from, and run

     

        omnidb -session [session_id] -detail             Do not include the [   ] marks

     

    This wil tell you if the Objects in thei session are still protected.  If you see Not Protected, then run

     

        omnidb -session [session_id] -media

     

    to see what media was used fo rthissession, it will hae to be exported, re-imported, and have Protection set to Permanent.  If more than one media was used for the Backup, you will need to import in the same order was used for the Backup. You can file this in the file

     

        Program Data -> Omniback -> log -> server -> media.log

     

    Do a search for the session ID

  • Hi Bob_Clark,

     

    Thanks for your answer.

    You are right, the backup was done on the HP D2D storage system on Jan 21st with 4 weeks protection. The protection have expired, the VTL have probably been written over and the catalog is gone.

    The thing is I am not trying to restore from the D2D backup session. The backup session have been copied to physical tape and it’s from those tapes I am trying to restore from. Those tape are protected for 7 years and their catalog for 52 weeks.

     

    Here is the backup session : http://i.imgur.com/bKNzYta.png The data was on the YYYYY.domain.com server. Expired protection and catalog.

    All the object of this session (and many others forming out Quarterly backup) have been copied to tape by a scheduled object copy operation.

    Here is one of the quarterly tape backup : http://i.imgur.com/JN3zzcf.png

    The red rectangle show the YYYYY.domain.com server. You can see it’s protection.

    Here is the object in the session detail command http://i.imgur.com/U00hxum.png and the session media command http://i.imgur.com/MJiD3MD.png

     

    I was hoping someone would find me a workaround the export/import procedure. An import will take over 10 hours and as you saw, there are many tapes involved…

     

    It is not logical… if the catalog of the physical tape is still protected for a year, that I need to import the tape again ?!

    I thought that protecting the physical tape catalogs for 52 weeks would allow me to restore from any tapes within a year without all that manipulation….

    What do I need to change to be able, in the future, to restore from my physical tapes without re-importing them all ?!

     

    Thanks

  • I took a look at some lab cases, and found that this was a known problem in 8.13, and it does not look like the fix was ported to DP 9.0 or 9.01, but that it may have made it into 9.02

     

    I'm going to suggest that you install the patch bundle for DP 9.02, and see if you still have the same problem.  If you do, open a case with the REsponse Center.  They will need to have a copy of your IDB

     

           omnidbutil -writedb [destination directory]            Do not include the [   ] marks

     

    which will create a file name 'dpidb.dat' in the destination directory, and, also, a debug of your Restore, to be sure that thsi is the same symptom the 8.13 fix corrected
