Enterprise Manager and Tape restores

Post by haslund » Mar 09, 2015 7:38 am

Hi,

A few customers has asked how they can figure out which backup chain to restore from tape to find a specific guest os file.
Lets say customer sends a full backup to tape every week (no incrementals).

From what I see the process would be:
#1
Use Enterprise Manager to locate which .vbk file contains the required guest os file

#2
Use VBR to locate which tape contains this file.

Any chance for EM to contain tape information in the future to keep this process to a single interface?

Hey Rasmus,

Yes, you can use this approach as well as give this report a try.

P.S. there is always a chance ;)

Thanks!
