Working on…

Server quote request

Filer recovery outside our retention window

Currently restoring small set of files from our oldest nearline backup (end of April), in the hopes that the needed files are there. Otherwise, I need to go retrieve and re-index tapes from the vault.

Database cluster backup configuration

Added a new volume as a cluster resource in SQL Server group, but I can’t get SQL Server to “see” the drive so that I can run a backup and store the file on the new drive. I probably have to add the device as a dependency to the SQL Server service itself. But I can’t take it offline til late.

Also, I’ve been working on the Networker configuration. I’ve tried several versions of the documented setup for backing up a windows clustered resource. I finally tried updating the Networker client (7.3.2 to 7.3.3) and then it ran the backup successfully. Unfortunately, it updated the wrong client’s index. Networker added the savesets to the index of the cluster physical node that did not host the webdb cluster resource.

I have to follow-up with technical support.

Other sundry issues, too, of course.
