NetVault Plug-in for Microsoft Office 365 12.5 - User Guide

Searching for granular items

The Search option on the Create Restore Job — Choose Saveset page lets you find specific files or data items without opening any savesets or browsing through their contents. You can use filenames or regular expressions to find the data items that you want to restore. Additionally, if you enabled the Enable Granular Restore option, you can search Outlook backups using the subject, sender, recipient, and received date and time for email messages. You can also search in Azure AD backup for Azure AD users, groups, or service principals; and search for SharePoint Online savesets by site name using the Name criterion.

To configure or enable the catalog search, select Catalog Search from the Navigation pane. The catalog search supports the regular expression syntax used by Elasticsearch. For more information on Elasticsearch, see https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/query-dsl-regexp-query.html. For more information on catalog search, see the Quest NetVault Backup Administrator’s Guide.

Troubleshooting

This topic describes some common errors and their solutions.

These messages indicate that the selected data was backed up, but the job’s index information was not properly added by NetVault Backup to its database. Without this index information, the data cannot be properly restored.

Method 1:

Open the Manage Devices page, select the backup media, and click Scan. NetVault Backup stores index information for backup jobs in two locations: in the NetVault Database and on the media targeted by the backup. When you scan the backup media, the index information is added to the NetVault Database. To verify that the information was added, open the Manage Job Definitions page, and locate the specific job. If you can run the job now, the scan process has corrected the problem.

Method 2:

If the scan has failed, run the backup job again.
