Sentinel Data Restoration Problem


Hi all,

I wanna restore data from one sentinel to another sentinel. While
following WebGUI Storage->Configuration->Data Restoration instruction, I
found the event data folder name being the same on the 2 systems and
make me cant copy without overwriting. What should I do to solve this?
Thanks.

Re: Sentinel Data Restoration Problem

Can you explain a little more about why you cannot copy without
overwriting? Are the file names identical or just the directory names?
Could you show us which directories you are seeing matched with their file
contents by copying/pasting the path and s few of the files' names?

Good luck.

Re: Sentinel Data Restoration Problem


Thx ab, my situation is i followed Sentinel 7.0 Web GUI instruction and
accessed to server's /var/opt/novell/sentinel/data/eventdata/events/
directory. In sentinel A, i found the event folder of 10th Jun named
"20130610_6E1CCA35-4BD4-102D-91CD-000C2907C76D". When i copied the event
folder and accessed sentinel B, i found the same folder name
"20130610_6E1CCA35-4BD4-102D-91CD-000C2907C76D" in sentinel B and thus i
couldn't copy 10th Jun data from sentinel A to sentinel B since it will
lead to overwriting sentinel B existing data. I hope my words are clear
to explain the problem. Thanks very much.

Re: Sentinel Data Restoration Problem

I assume these are from one of the built-in retention policies; any custom
retention policies should have unique UUIDs but the ones that come out of
the box appear to all be the same. For all I know the system may not care
much about those, so perhaps just try incrementing the UUID by one or
something and seeing if it works.

Good luck.
