Arcserve and file trustees

Anyone familiar with Arcserve: I've been testing AS 11.5 SP3 for Linux, installed on SLES 10.2 and backing up NW 6.5 SP7 using arcserve client agents. I saw everything I wanted to see when testing backups and restore, including restoring file trustee rights. However, when I ran a full backup over the weekend, I set the job to record job and session info only, not detailed info. When I did a test restore, the file trustee rights were not restored.

So, I'm looking for some confirmation here. I suspect that if I had recorded detailed info, the restored files would have included trustee info. My question is, is this strictly a database issue? If I were to run a merge job with those tapes with the detailed info option and then restore, would the trustee rights be restored? Or when I backed up the files, did the trustee rights not even make it to tape? If I need to run a trustbar on each volume and back that up, I will, but I'm hoping that the rights are on tape and I would just have to run a merge job if I need to get trustees back. Thanks for any info.

If you get no response here, I think you'll have to take it up with CA.

No. Whatever your issue is, it is not normal at all, and should not (and
pretty cetainly) has nothing to do with te amount of job detail you
*log*. This is totally unrelated to the backup itself.

How did you actually do your restore? Was this a restore to the same
server or to a different server and did you restore all the data or just
isolated directories or files? Is it possible that your restored directory
didn't actually have any trustees on the source but that the rights flowed
down from a directory higher up the file system?
