To start the restore process, a database session needs to be created.

Step 1

Login to the NetBackup GUI and navigate to Backup, Archive and Restore section.


Step 2

Click on the Restore Files tab and select the Source, Destination Client and type of Policy to restore the MaxDB backup files. The Policy Type will be Standard.


Step 3

Under Browse Directory select the MaxDB database backup files to restore.


Step 4

Choose to restore to a different location, and change the target destination to a temporary location on the SAP_MaxDB Server. i.e. C:\MaxDB\Backup


Step 5

Create a database session.

dbmcli -u DBM,DBM -d DEMODB

Step 6

Create a backup template.

The format to follow will be;

backup_template_create <backup_template> to <backup_destination> <backup_content>

Create a template d1 for data backup.

dbmcli on DB1> backup_template_create d1 to FILE C:\MaxDB\Backup\DAT0001 CONTENT DATA

Create a template l1 for log backup.

dbmcli on DB1> backup_template_create l1 to FILE C:\MaxDB\Backup\LOG CONTENT LOG

Create a template md for a data backup using files in parallel.

dbmcli on DB1> backup_template_create md to FILE C:\MaxDB\Backup\DAT0001 NAMED b1 FILE C:\MaxDB\Backup\DAT0002 NAMED b2 CONTENT DATA

Step 7

Copy the recovered files to the location of the backup template.

Check if the backup can be accessed and that data reading will work. A service session is requires as follows;

dbmcli on DB1> db_admin dbmcli on DB1> service_connect dbmcli on DB1> recover_check <backup_template> <backup_type>

Step 8

If the outputs from these commands show a return code of 0, the information was checked successfully.

To start the restore of this data, use the following commands;

dbmcli on DB1> service_release dbmcli on DB1> db_connect dbmcli on DB1> recover_start <backup_template> <backup_type>
