Recovery of Backups made to HPE Storeonce Catalyst store if Data Protector Cell Manager is lost?

Jump to solution

Hi,

We are considering making backups to the HPE Storeonce Catalyst store instead of to a tape library.

In the event of our Data Protector Cell Manager becoming corrupt is there a way to rebuild our backup database to access our backups on the Catalyst stores.

With tapes we just scan the tapes to re-import them into the new cell manager.

Otherwise we lose all our backups to the Catalyst store?

Kind regards

Andrew

Hello @A.W.R 

And to aport to @Koen Verbelen comments, the commands needed to create the slot is this:

omnimm -add_slots StoreOnceDevice SlotNumber
Example: omnimm -add_slots SO_America 3ef4dbc2_55e0786b_04f5_0001

To check the existent slots run this: omnib2dinfo -list_objects -b2ddevice StoreOnceDevice

Hi Andrew,

Yes, that is possible. Just like with tapes, the objects on StoreOnce store can be imported into the IDB again also. The only difference is that the slots need to be created on the Data Protector side first before you can import. However, the slot name on the DP device is just the object name on the StoreOnce store. So, not complicated and definitely possible!

Hello @A.W.R, Hello @Victor_F_DP,

For DR having omnidownload export of the B2D Library and B2D Gateways available is useful for quickly reconfiguring the device. Then use https://marketplace.microfocus.com/itom/content/omnib2dsync to update the repository quickly with the most recent information from StoreOnce.

If the IDB backup is stored in the StoreOnce only scan and import the relevant slots. Having a recent copy of media.log helps, look for latest OmniDB entry in the file. Then perform an IDB Restore.

Regards,
Sebastian Koehler
