Restores using cluster-aware plug-ins

The procedure for performing restores using the Plug-in for FileSystem is similar for both standard and virtual clients. The backups are restored from the virtual client node and not the actual client node. When you submit a restore job, the plug-in communicates with the cluster service to determine the controlling node and targets this machine for the restore.

For information about restoring data in the Exchange Server Clustered environment, Oracle RAC setup, SQL Server Failover Cluster, and MySQL Server Failover Cluster, see the relevant plug-in user’s guide.

NOTE: For cluster backups and restores, the virtual client name is displayed on the Job Status page and the actual client name is displayed on the View Logs page.

You can also use the Txtconfig utility to customize default settings for the server and client machines.

The Txtconfig utility provides a text-based interface to customize various settings for the server and client machines. This utility is available on all supported operating systems. The Txtconfig utility resides in the bin directory under the NetVault Backup installation directory. You must be logged-in with Administrator privileges on Windows and root user privileges on Linux and UNIX to use the Txtconfig utility.
