Restore from Failed or Killed Jobs
The Restore from Failed or Killed Jobs option provides the facility to select specific failed or killed backup job(s) to be restored. When restoring a failed or killed job, the data that was written in the backup job up to the point of failure or being killed is what will be restored.
Points to Remember When Restoring Failed or Killed Jobs
Failed or killed backup jobs are immediately aged regardless of their defined retention rules, therefore, these jobs can only be restored if:
- The Show Aged Data During Browse and Recovery option is selected from the CommCell Console Control Panel's Browse/Recovery Option dialog box. See Accessing Aged Data for more information.
- The media is not yet overwritten (Aged data can only be restored from removable storage media, i.e., tape media. Data stored in Disk libraries cannot be restored using the Show Aged Data During Browse and Recovery option.)
Restoring failed or killed jobs is done by using the Restore by Jobs feature, and therefore, is supported by the same agents. Refer to Advanced File System iDataAgent Options - Support for more information.
