    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.

    This is a fantastic guide Preston.

    I would add 1 extra point to resolve issues that I have seen when running directed recoveries:

    7. Place the destination client name [short name, long name & all aliases – 1 per line] in the /nsr/res/servers file on the source client. Restart nsrexecd afterwards.

      I can’t say I’ve ever observed that need before. However, that almost sounds like it’s caused by some permissions problem — or maybe name resolution. Regardless, thanks for the suggesting it – if someone encounters problems with the traditional method as well they may find that your suggestion helps get them over the line :-)
