Enterprise Manager and Tape restores

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


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:
Use Enterprise Manager to locate which .vbk file contains the required guest os file

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 ;)
