    If you find this blog interesting, and either have an interest in or work in data protection/backup and recovery environments, you should check out my book, Enterprise Systems Backup and Recovery: A Corporate Insurance Policy. Designed for system administrators and managers alike, it focuses on features, policies, procedures and the human element to ensuring that your company has a suitable and working backup system rather than just a bunch of copies made by unrelated software, hardware and processes.

    Is there any way to search for a particular file in a group of savesets?

    • Preston said

      Using nsrinfo, about the only way you can do this is just search by client instead of saveset. E.g., “nsrinfo clientName”; however, this is going to return everything browsable. The nsrinfo command does take a filename argument, but then it becomes an exact search.

      It’s more the case that you’d need to script that sort of search. This is part of why we came up with IDATA Tools and the find-files utility; it will take a partial filename and then search all savesets for the nominated client(s) across the nominated time period.

    I guess I’m correct that this works only for browseable savesets right?

      Yes – only browsable savesets have the information retained in the indices to support this option.
