Protecting the NetVault SmartDisk unique identity

Each NetVault SmartDisk installation of the software binaries creates a unique identity that is referenced in the NetVault SmartDisk Content Index and your backup product. NetVault SmartDisk’s unique identity is required in cases where the NetVault SmartDisk software binaries are reinstalled while retaining the data stored in the NetVault SmartDisk Storage Pools. For more information, see Reinstalling NetVault SmartDisk.

To ensure that you can reinstall the NetVault SmartDisk software binaries while retaining the data stored in the NetVault SmartDisk Storage Pools, protect the NetVault SmartDisk unique identity by backing up the following configuration file:

Preserving data before removing NetVault SmartDisk

When you remove NetVault SmartDisk from a Windows or Solaris system, the data in the Staging Store and the Chunk Store is retained after removal of the NetVault SmartDisk software binaries.

For all other Linux- and UNIX-based systems and Mac OS X, the data in the Staging Store and the Chunk Store is deleted if the default directory was used during installation. If you want to retain the data in the Staging Store and the Chunk Store after you remove the NetVault SmartDisk software binaries, move the Staging Store and the Chunk Store to a secure location before removing the NetVault SmartDisk software binaries.

If you specified a different file-system path during installation, that is, you did not use the defaults, the data in the Staging Store and the Chunk Store is retained after removal of the NetVault SmartDisk software binaries.
