Re: Unable to backup Lotus database with NMDA

Hello community,

today I installed a NetWorker Client, extended Client and NMDA software on a Windows Server 2016 R2. It is a Lotus Notes server and I want to backup the Lotus database. My NetWorker server is running also on Windows Server 2016 R2. I am using NetWorker version 18.1.0.2

I created a client resource for the Lotus backup by using the client wizard within NMC. But I am not able to run a backup. It fails with the message:

suppressed 1800 bytes of output.

Unable to process file D:<lotus-path><file>.nsf.

— Job Indications —

Unable to find any full backups of the save set ‘<nw-client>:NOTES:’ in the media database. Recommending that a full backup be performed.

<nw-client>:NOTES:: retried 1 times.

The client configuration is pretty simple. The wizard recognized the Lotus installation and filled all the needed information. This is what is displayed under “Application Information” in the client resource:

NSR_BACKUP_LOTUS_DIR:”TRUE”;

NSR_LOTUS_DATA_DIR:”D:\IBM\Domino\data”;

NSR_NOTES_INI_PATH:”D:\IBM\Domino\notes.ini”;

NSR_WIZARD_VERSION:”W1.1″; Notes_ExecDirectory:”D:\IBM\Domino”; name:”Lotus”; type:”LotusCFG”;

Can someone help or give me a hint? Do I need to specify a user somewhere? Or is it better to use the configuration files on the Lotus server?

Thanks in advance,

Cannot use BBB for CIFS share backup

Hello folks,

I need to backup a CIFS share which I have manually mounted as drive Z: to my NetWorker server (Windows Server 2012 R2, v18.1.0.2).

In the documentation is mentioned that mount points can be backed up with the block-based backup feature:

Volume mount points—Specify volume mount points as save sets. For

example:

D:mount_point_name (for a single mount point)

D:mount_point_name1mount_point_name2mount_point_name3

(for nested mount points)

So I created a straight forward client resource with the BBB flag set to yes and “Z:” in the save set field.

But I get the message:

“\<unc-path>:No such file or directory”

Can anyone help?

Altiris eXpress Database DSN Damaged After 3.3 Upgrade

I do not need a solution (just sharing information)

Just wanted to share with everyone that in my experience upgrading from 3.2 RU7 to 3.3 the System DSN for the “Altiris eXpress Database” is not created correctly or damaged after a 3.3 upgrade.  I’ve had two separate GSS machines fail to launch the Console after installing 3.3 because the database couldn’t be found.  If you’re looking to upgrade make sure to backup the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWOW6432NodeODBCODBC.INIAltiris eXpress Database and its contents before installing, just to be safe.

Unable to restore VM from tape device

Hi folks,

I am trying to do a comlete VM restore from a backup created via the vProxy. The Save Set was written to a Data Domain and later cloned to a tape device. The tape shall be the source for the restore.

I am on NetWorker v18.1 on a Windows Server 2012 R2. Tape Library is a TS4300 with LTO8 drives connected via SAN to the NetWorker Server (physical). There is no additional Storage Node.

So I started the recovery wizard within the NMC and selected everything I needed. At the last page I selected the tape as source and did choose my one and only Data Domain pool as staging pool.

After a few seconds I got the failure:

155752:nsrvproxy_recover: Unable to find a usable device for recovery of saveset 3976587711: Unable to find enabled Data Domain device for volume ‘000061L8’. An attempt will be made to perform automatic clone resurrection

165713:nsrvproxy_recover: Attempting to automatically resurrect clone 3976587711 with 7 days retention to DD volume in pool DATA



I searched the web and support.emc.com without any success. There were two KBs. One mentioned to check DNS which is correct. The second one suggested to mount a boost device from the selected pool which I checked.

Has anyone an advice?

Thanks

Collecting and Storing Scientific Data Is Keeping Astronauts In Space
What’s the most valuable data you store in the cloud? For most of us, it’s pictures of family and friends. These photos are priceless to each individual, certainly. It’s definitely worth storing a backup in the cloud and having them on a local disk.

Now imagine your data was priceless not just to you, but to the entire human race. How would you store, say, images from the last moon mission? How would you capture not just the data, but the context that makes the data meaningful, and then preserve it for future generations? Most importantly, how would you keep data secure and make it freely available around the world?

Answering these tough questions is a full-time job for Tom Stein, NASA Planetary Data System Geosciences Node Operations Manager at Washington University. On this episode, Stein explains how he and his team collect, preserve, and distribute terabytes of irreplaceable data generated by the space program, data that is ultimately being used to inform and improve the space program.

Re: FTP files to DataDomain?

Hi

We have a DD620 sitting in our internal network, and we have servers in our DMZ zone that do some local backups using SQL.

I am trying to figure out a good way to automate sending those backup files to DataDomain without granting too much access out of the DMZ zone.

I thought FTP would be nice, its simple, I wouldn’t think it as dangerous as forwarding SQL..

But FTP only seems to allow gathering files from the internal OS, and not from any of the actual shares.

I thought I had to just be missing something, but I can’t find anything even in documentation..

So is there any way to FTP files onto the CIFS shares of the DD?

I’m open to any other suggestions if anyone has any other ideas!


Thanks!

Simplify Cloud DR with Dell EMC

EMC logo


With the growing transition to cloud computing, many organizations are looking to leverage the value of cloud to enhance their disaster recovery (DR) plans. In the past, organizations have spent an enormous amount of money on DR sites (servers, backup and systems). And though they often felt that the ROI wasn’t great, options to reduce the cost were limited. In fact, DR testing and recoverability were often delayed and manual — a routine checklist choreographed as a pre-planned activity. Can disaster happen at an arranged time with defined events? Of course not. In fact, most organizations … READ MORE
