Recover Data - OnePass for Celerra

Recall Stubs

Follow the steps given below to recover stubs:

  1. Make sure that the client computer has UNC access to the stubs on file server or has a mapped network drive to the share.
  2. If you are using a separate computer with Web Console and Web Server installed on it for recalls, make sure that the recall computer is in the same domain as that of the Celerra file server.
  3. Navigate to the folder with stubs in it.
  4. Double-click the stub.

    It may take a few minutes for the recovered file to appear once you double-click the stub. On Windows 2012 R2 computers, the size of the stub appears as 0 KB of disk space. However, you can recall the file successfully.

Important Consideration

Verify if the tape is exported before attempting a recall job. To verify the tape, add the nRETRY_RECALL_CHECK_ISTAPEEXPORTED_BEFORE_RECALL additional setting on the MediaAgent computer as shown in the following table.

For instructions on adding the additional settings from the CommCell Console, see Add or Modify an Additional Setting.
