arcserve-KB : Different Restore Methods Available in arcserve Central Host Based VM Backup.

Last Update: 2016-11-23 17:15:51 UTC


Description:

How your backup session was created determines which restore methods can be used. For example, some restore methods are only possible if performed with a locally installed version of CA ARCserve D2D. Other methods require the virtual machine powered on at backup time.

Solution:

Browse Recovery Points
Lets you find available recovery points (successful backups) from a calendar view. Use this method to restore files, folders, or perform the application level restore process. Backups created with CA ARCserve D2D, CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup, or CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager can be restored with this method.

Browse File Copies
Lets you search file copy locations, which can be a disk or cloud location, for specific files to restore. Backups created with CA ARCserve D2D can be restored with this method but backups created with CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup do not support file copies.

Find Files/Folders to Restore
Lets you find specific files or folders to restore. Backups created with CA ARCserve D2D can be restored with this method. It is also available to restore backups created with CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup and CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager when the virtual machine was powered on at the time of backup.

Recover VM
Lets you browse all available virtual machine recovery points (successful backups) from a calendar view. You can then specify the virtual machine you want to recover. This method is available to restore backups created with CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup and first provisions a virtual machine and then restores the OS, applications and data from the recovery point you specified.

Restore Exchange Mails
This is also called Granular Restore. You can browse for and select individual email messages within an Exchange database to restore. This method is available to restore backups created with CA ARCserve D2D. Backups created with CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup cannot be used to for Granular Restore. Specify this option from a locally installed version of CA ARCserve D2D. When restoring individual mailbox/mail objects, the operating system used for the restore must be same as that used when the Exchange database was backed up (including the same Windows Version number and Service Pack level).

Application Restore
To restore a Microsoft Exchange or SQL Server completely without having to rebuild it, click the Browse Recovery Points method from a locally installed version of CA ARCserve D2D.

Bare Metal Recovery
Bare Metal Recovery (BMR) is the process of restoring a computer from bare metal including its operating system, software applications, settings and data. BMR requires you to have a Windows image or boot kit and at least one full backup. Backups created with CA ARCserve D2D, CA ARCserve Central Host-Based VM Backup, CA ARCserve Central Virtual Standby, and CA ARCserve Central Protection Manager can be restored with this method. However, if the virtual machine was powered down during backup, BMR is not possible.
