About restoring NetWare servers

Before restoring your NetWare server, you may want to read about restore operations in general.

See Restoring data by setting job properties.

If you have more than one server in the NDS tree, it is not necessary to restore NDS since a replica should be available from another server. The only time an NDS restore operation needs to be done is to replace the objects that have been deleted accidentally.

Because information about partitions and replicas would probably change between a backup of NDS and any subsequent restores, this information is not saved by SMS when a backup of NDS is performed. Thus, when NDS is backed up, it appears as though all objects are stored in a single partition.

However, if information about partitions is available when the restore operation is performed, objects are restored to the proper partition.
