In the event of data loss on a primary system, you might need to restore data from the secondary system.
You can manually delete these unwanted Snapshot copies. Make sure that you do not delete the base Snapshot copy of the restore operation.
-S [sec_system:]sec_qtree_path specifies the secondary system and qtree path from which you want to restore the data.
The -f option forces the command to proceed without first asking for confirmation from the user.
The -k option sets the maximum transfer rate in kilobytes per second.
The -r option attempts an incremental restore. The incremental restore can be used to revert the changes made to a primary qtree since any backed-up version on the secondary system.
The -w option causes the command not to return after the baseline transfer starts. Instead, it waits until the transfer completes (or fails). At that time, it prints the completion status and then returns. If the command returns successfully, the status of the transfer can be idle or quiescing.
The -s option specifies that the restore operation must use the specified (snapname) Snapshot copy on the secondary system.
prim_system is the name of the primary system that you want to restore to. If specified, this name must match the name of the host system.
prim_qtree_path is the name of the primary system qtree that you want to restore to.
For more information about the snapvault restore command options, see the na_snapvault(1) man page.
|If you want to...||Then...|
|Resume SnapVault backups of the newly restored qtree on the primary system||Go to Step 4.|
|Discontinue the backup relationship between the newly restored qtree on the primary system and its secondary qtree partner||Go to Step 6.|
-r is required to restart backups from a restored primary system. For details about the snapvault command syntax, see the na_snapvault(1) man page.
sec_qtree_path is the name of the secondary system qtree that you want to release from a SnapVault relationship.
[prim_system:]prim_qtree_path is the name of the primary system qtree that you want to release.
