Restoring NetWare servers

You can restore data to the NetWare server from which the data was backed up, or to another server.

If you are redirecting a restore operation, note the following:

  • Only data can be included in a redirected restore operation; NDS objects cannot be redirected.

  • The data that is backed up from a Novell server can be restored to a Windows volume; again, NDS objects cannot be redirected.

See About restoring NetWare servers.

To restore NetWare servers

  1. On the navigation bar, click the arrow next to Restore.

  2. Click New Restore Job.

  3. Select the data you want to restore.

    See About selecting data to restore.

  4. If you want to change the Restore option default, on the Properties pane, under Settings, click NetWare SMS.

  5. Select or clear Restore volume restriction.

    If you select this option, Backup Exec restores NetWare volume restrictions. Restoring volume restrictions is not recommended unless you are performing disaster recovery.

  6. (Optional) If you want to redirect the restore to another server, under Destination, click File Redirection and complete the options.

    See File Redirection restore options .

    If you restore NetWare data to a Windows volume, trustee data that is associated with the files is not restored. If the file was compressed by NetWare and was backed up in a compressed format, you cannot restore it to a Windows volume.

  7. Start the restore job or select other restore options from the Properties pane.

    If you clear the Preserve tree option on the General Restore Job Properties and the target directory is the volume root, Backup Exec still uses the Preserve tree option and data is restored with its original directory intact.

    See Restoring data by setting job properties.
