Option: Catalog Backups Template

If you select the Catalog Backups template on the Select Template page, the wizard continues with the

following steps:

Select Type of Backup Media (Backup Cataloging)

You can use this page to select the type of the backup media that holds the backup you want to catalog.

You can select one of the following options:

  • Backup files. Catalogs the backup files you specify.
  • Tape drives. Catalogs backups from physical tape drives.
  • Microsoft Removable Storage Manager library. Catalogs backups from the backup media you select from a list provided by the Microsoft Removable Storage Manager (RSM) service.

Note: With these options you can only use the following types of backups:

  • OpenTape Format (OTF) backup files created with EMC NetWorker
  • Tape Archive (TAR) backup files created with NetBackup
  • Microsoft Tape Format (MTF)-compliant backup files created with Windows Backup or Backup Exec

Add Backup Files (Backup Cataloging)

On the Add Backup Files page, the wizard prompts you to set up a list of the backup files you want to catalog.

You can use the following elements:

  • Added backup files. Displays a list of the backup files that you have selected to catalog.
  • Add. Opens a dialog box you can use to select the backup files and add them to the list. You can add multiple files.
  • Remove. Removes selected backup files from the list. To remove files from the list, select the files you want to remove, and then click Remove.

To select multiple files in one step, hold down CTRL and click the files you want to select.

You can add incremental or differential backups. To add a differential backup, you need to have the last normal (full) backup as well as the last differential backup cataloged with Recovery Manager for Exchange. To add an incremental backup, you need to have the last normal (full) backup and all subsequent incremental backups cataloged with Recovery Manager for Exchange.

Select Tape Drives (Backup Cataloging)

In the Available tape drives list on the Select Tape Drives page, the wizard displays physical tape drives found on the computer running Recovery Manager for Exchange. You can select the check boxes next to the names of the tape drives from which you want to catalog Exchange Server backups.
