NetVault Backup Plug-in for Domino 4.4 - User Guide

Setting restore options

This step involves the steps outlined in the following topics:

Configuring Roll-Forward Recovery options

On the Create Selection Set page, click Edit Plugin Options, and configure the following parameters on the Rollforward tab:

Under Recovery and Rollforward, configure the following parameters:
Last Backup Set: To recover the database in the following scenarios, select this check box:
Do Not Perform Recovery: Select this check box if you want to omit replay of the archive logs.
Soft Recovery: To replay the Current Logs on the Domino Server to recover a database to the most recent state, leave this option selected. You can use this option whether the Domino Server is offline or online.
Hard Recovery: To recover only the Transaction Logs in the last saveset without recovering the Current Logs, select this option. This option is useful if the Current Logs and the Control File “nlogctrl.lfh” are damaged or missing. You can select this option only when the Domino Server is offline.
Under Assign New DB-IID, configure the following parameters:
Do not give new DB-IID: Select this option if you do not want to assign a new DB‑IID to the recovered databases.
Give new DB-IID to databases: Select this option if you want to assign a new DB‑IID to the recovered databases. Using a new DB‑IID lets you access the original database if it exists. Because the recovered version is a new instance, Quest recommends that you perform a backup of the new instance after the recovery.
When you select this option, the Assign New Replica ID check box becomes available; it only works with the Give new DB-IID to databases option. If you want to assign a new Replica ID to the recovered databases, select this check box; otherwise, verify that the check box is cleared.
New DB-IID only if Necessary: To assign a new DB‑IID to a database only if a different instance of the same database is online, select this option. This issue might occur if you restore to a different directory, or if the database was backed up through a Domino Database Link.

Configuring PITR options

To perform a PITR, click the Point In Time Recovery tab, select the Apply Point In Time Recovery up to check box, and configure the specific point in the Day and Hour boxes:

Day: Enter or select the day up to which the backed-up data should be recovered. The format for specifying the day is dd:mm:yyyy.
Hour: Enter or select the hour up to which the backed-up data should be recovered. The format for specifying the hour is hh:mm:ss.

Configuring DAOS restore options

To configure the DAOS restore options, click the Lotus DAOS tab, and configure the following parameters:

If existing, overwrite DAOS files: Leave this check box selected to overwrite the existing DAOS items in the target directory with the backed-up version in the selected saveset. To skip the existing files and restore only the missing items, clear the check box.
Restore DAOS files listed in the following text file: For a selective restore of the missing DAOS items, select this check box, and then enter the complete path to the text file that contains the list of DAOS items to be restored. The text file must contain one item per line. The preconfigured value for this parameter is: <DominoDataDirectory>/listnlo.txt
NOTE: listnlo.txt is the default filename for the missing “.nlo” files, unless a custom name is specified while generating the list from Domino Server Console.
Relocate all restored DAOS files to the directory: If you do not want to overwrite the existing DAOS repository, select this check box to restore the DAOS items to an alternate directory, and then specify the full path for the alternate directory. The Plug‑in for Domino maintains the existing directory hierarchy while restoring the DAOS items, creating the necessary subdirectories in the process. For example, a file backed up from subdirectory 0001 is restored to the same sub-subdirectory in the new location. By default, the relocation directory is set to the configured DAOS directory.
