  1. Disk Staging - Request for restore advice


    Hi,

    Firstly, I am running Netbackup 5.1 MP3 in a Windows 2003 Server environment.


    I am currently testing disk staging and having a few problems with restores\getting
    my head around it.

    Currently we keep our tapes on a 4 weekly rotation, however the disk copy
    will only be there for one week due to the size of the NAS. I simulated
    a restore job by deleting the disk copy thinking/hoping it would resort to
    tape, but it failed. See below:


    16:47:21 29/11/2005: Restore Started

    16:47:33 (17330.xxx) INF - Status = the restore failed to recover the requested
    files.

    With my current setup does it mean the tapes which are kept offsite are useless
    after orginal backup is ovewritten, surely this defeats the point in disk
    staging?

    Thanks in advance
