Stub Recovery Options

Mass Stub Recall

You can recall multiple stubs available within a directory and also the stubs available in a parent-child directory structure by using the Macintosh Finder. For more information on configuring the Macintosh Finder Plug-In, see Finder Plug-In - Configuration.

Recalling Archived CIFS or SMB Share Data

You can recall archived CIFS or SMB shares from a Macintosh client computer.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the Macintosh client computer using your user account.
  2. In Finder, navigate to the folder with CIFS or SMB file share stubs in it.
  3. Double-click the stub.

    The recovered stub opens directly in its associated application.

Notes:

  • In Finder, when you select the CIFS or SMB file shares, a message is displayed indicating that preview is unavailable for the remote file system irrespective of whether data is archived or not.
  • There is no visual distinction between a regular file and a stub.

Restore by Jobs

The Restore By Jobs feature provides the facility to select a specific backup job to be restored. This method of restoring data is considerably faster as it reads continuously on the tape and retrieves the data and does not depend on the indexing subsystem to get the seek offsets on the media.

You can select a specific archive job for a restore. This method of restoring data is faster and useful in the following scenarios:

  • To restore point-in-time data associated with a specific backup job

Consider the following when restoring by jobs:

  • Run a restore by jobs whenever you want to restore the entire contents of the job.
  • Avoid running restores by jobs for jobs associated with the default subclient. If you do this, the entire contents of the machine will be restored. As such, this may cause problems (e.g., the machine might run out of space) or produce undesirable results (e.g., you might end up restoring operating system files or directories that you really do not want to restore).
  • Avoid modifying the contents of any associated subclients since this may result in the retrieval of older data.

Once you initiate the restore operation, a restore job is generated in the Job Controller. Jobs can be managed in a number of ways. The following sections provide information on the different job management options available:

Restart Jobs

Jobs that fail to complete successfully are automatically restarted based on the job restartability configuration set in the Control Panel. This configuration can be changed at any time; however, changes to this configuration will affect all jobs run in the entire CommCell.

It is also possible to override the default CommServe configuration for individual jobs by configuring retry settings when initiating the job. This configuration, however, will apply only to the specific job.

Restore jobs for this Agent are re-started from the beginning.

Configure Job Restartability at the CommServe level

  1. In the CommCell Console, click the Control Panel icon, then double-click Job Management.
  2. In the Job Restarts tab of the Job Management dialog box, select a job type from the Job Type list, and then select the Restartable check box.
  3. To change the maximum number of times the Job Manager will try to restart a job, select a number in the Max Restarts box.
  4. To change the time interval between attempts by the Job Manager to restart the job, select a number of minutes in the Restart Interval (Mins) box.
  5. Click OK to save your changes.

Configure Job Restartability for an Individual Job

  1. From the Restore Options dialog box, click Advanced, then select the Job Retry tab and specify the following as desired:
    • Total Running Time - The maximum elapsed time, in hours and minutes, from the time that the job is created.
    • Number of Retries - The number of times that Job Manager will attempt to restart the job.
    • Kill Running Jobs When Total Running Time Expires - Option to kill the job when the specified Total Running Time has elapsed, even if its state is "Running".
  2. Click OK.

Resubmit Jobs

If a restore job fails to complete successfully, you can resubmit the job without the need to reconfigure the original job's restore options using the Resubmit Job feature. When a job is resubmitted, all the original options, restore destinations, and other settings configured for the job remain in tact.

Resubmit a Restore Job

  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click a client computer whose data recovery history you want to view, click View, then click to view a job history.
  2. From the Job History Filter dialog box, select Restore.
    • If you want to view more advanced options for restores, from the Job History Filter, select Restore, then click Advanced.

  3. The system displays the results of the options you selected in the Data Recovery Job History window.
  4. Right-click on any job, and select Resubmit.
  5. Select the job options.
  6. Click OK.

Control Jobs

The following controls are available for running jobs in the Job Controller window:

Suspend Temporarily stops a job. A suspended job is not terminated; it can be restarted at a later time. Only preemptible jobs can be suspended.
Resume Resumes a job and returns the status to Waiting, Pending, Queued, or Running depending on the availability of resources or the state of the operation windows and activity control settings.

Restore jobs for this Agent are resumed from the beginning.

Kill Terminates a job.

These controls can be applied to:

  • All jobs in the Job Controller.
  • All selected jobs in the Job Controller providing you have the correct security associations at the proper level for each job selected.
  • All data protection operations running for a particular client or client/agent.
  • All data protection operations running for a particular MediaAgent.

Control a Job

  1. From the Job Controller of the CommCell Console, right-click the job and select Kill, Suspend, or Resume as desired.
    • When killing a job:

      Click Yes when the confirmation prompt appears if you are sure you want to kill the job. The job status may change to Kill Pending for a few moments while the operation completes. Once completed, the job status will change to Killed and it will be removed from the Job Controller window after five minutes.

    • When suspending a job:

      The job status may change to Suspend Pending for a few moments while the operation completes. The job status then changes to Suspended.

    • When resuming a job:

      As the Job Manager attempts to restart the job, the job status changes to Waiting, Pending, or Running.

Accessing Data from Web Console

The Web Console is a web-based application that allows end-users to manage their data. End-users can easily access their data using the Web Console from any remote computer that runs a Java-enabled web browser.
