Media Recovery - Disk Media


In a disaster recovery situation, you can recover the data on disk media's using one of the following ways:

Moving Mount Paths

Copy the CV_MAGNETIC folder on the disk volumes to a different location and modify the mount path’s data path to the new location.

When you modify the mount path, make sure the following:

  • The folder or file structure within the CV_MAGNETIC folder must be maintained in the new location.

  • The file system (NTFS, EXT3, etc.) in the new disk volume should be the same.

For instructions, see Modifying the Mount Path.

Re-establishing Data Paths for Shared Disk Folders

After recovering a MediaAgent with a new name, add the new MediaAgent’s data path to the shared disk device.

For instructions, see Sharing Mount Paths.

Note: If the disk media is not available, you can migrate the data from a secondary copy to a local mount path in the MediaAgent. For instructions, see Migrating a Disk Library - Using a Local Mount Path.
