Recovery Mode

Configuration Steps

1-Touch recovery

  1. On the affected client, create a device alias for the network interface that you want to use for booting.


    On Solaris Sparc clients, type the following command at the boot prompt.

    nvalias device_aliasdevice_path

    • The device_path can be found in the network_interfaces file that is created at the time of 1-Touch backup.
    • The network_interfaces file will be available under the JumpStart directory after the 1-Touch recovery restore.

      For example, if the JumpStart files are installed in the /jumpstart directory, the network_interfaces file will be under the /jumpstart/files/client/commvault/iDatAgent/systemrecovery directory.

  2. Use the newly created device_alias in the boot net command sequence.


    boot net1

    where net1 is the newly created device alias.
