Recovering System Data and Commvault Libraries from a DR Backup

After you install the basic operating system, recover the system data, IBM libraries, and Commvault libraries from the DVD images.

Before You Begin

Make sure that you load the DVD image that has the 1-Touch Disaster Recovery backup on the optical drive.

The IBM i File System Agent must be able to access the optical drive.

Procedure

After you install the basis operating system, the AS/400 Main Menu dialog box appears.

  1. Clear the system messages.
    1. On the command line, type the following command, and then press Enter.

      CHGMSGQ MSGQ(QSYSOPR) DLVRY(*BREAK) SEV(70)

    2. On the command line, type the following command, and then press Enter.

      ENDSBS SBS(*ALL) OPTION(*IMMED)

    3. After the message appears that states the system is in a restricted state, press Enter.
  2. Verify that the DVD image is loaded in the optical drive. On the command line, type the following command, substituting OPTXX with the optical device name.

    RSTLIB SAVLIB(CVLIB CVLIBOBJ) DEV(OPTXX)

  3. Restore the CVLIB. On the command line, type the following command, substituting OPTXX with the optical device name.

    Note: These libraries are not a part of the first DVD image, so you must load the required DVD image to restore these libraries.

    RSTLIB SAVLIB(CVLIB CVLIBOBJ) DEV(OPTXX)

  4. Load the first DVD image again in the optical device.
  5. Restore the system backup data. On the command line, type the following command, substituting OPTXX with the optical device name.

    CVLIB/CVSYSRST DEV(OPTXX) VOL(*MOUNTED)

    Example

    Restore the system backup data from the optical drive that is named OPT01.

    CVLIB/CVSYSRST DEV(OPT01) VOL(*MOUNTED)

  6. On the command line, type Yes, and then at the next dialog box prompt, press Enter.
  7. On the command line, type OK, and then for the next dialog boxes, press Enter.

    The restore process appears in the status bar.

  8. After the restore completes, the following dialog box appears. Type OK, and then for the next dialog boxes, press Enter.

    Type reply (if required), press Enter.
    Restore is completed from Optical device. You can proceed with Network configuration and start the TCP servers to restore the remaining data from
    Commvault backup
    Reply . . . OK

  9. Configure the TCP/IP configuration from the command line. For instructions, see the IBM documentation.
  10. Perform the initial program load (IPL). On the command line, type the following command:

    Note: During the restore, you may see an inquiry message that states, "Load next volume on optical device OPTXX. (C G)". When you see this message, load the next volume to the optical device, and then type G to continue the restore.

    PWRDWNSYS OPTION(*IMMED) RESTART(*YES)

Result

The following operation system, and system data are restored from the optical images:

  • User profiles
  • Private Authorities
  • Configuration objects
  • *IBM libraries (system libraries)
  • System libraries with user data: QSYS2, QGPL, QUSRSYS
  •  Commvault libraries: CV*
  • System files and Commvault files with logs
