With multiple CP4D appliances, and multiple NetBackup Media Server Clusters, it would be beneficial to be able to specify the NetBackup Copy Number on nzrestore operations to match that of the most local NetBackup copy.
For instance, CP4D appliance 1 does a backup operation in Data Center A. NetBackup then makes a second copy of this backup to Data Center B. A nzrestore operation is executed on CP4D appliance 2 in Datacetner B. This nzrestore can't specify a NetBackup Copy Number and thus retrieves the default copy of the backup set from Data Center A. Being able to specify a NetBackup Copy Number onthe nzrestore operation would allow the restore to source the backup set from Data Center B.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||As a customer, I want to efficiently restore my data.|
How should it work?
/nz/kit/bin/nzrestore -db MY_DATABASE -connector netbackup7-64 -connectorArgs DATASTORE_SERVER=nbumaster.company.com:COPY_NUMBER=2
|Priority Justification||Would speed migration from EOL Netezza Platform to CP4D as well as any restore operations.|
