Full backup restore example
The database administrator of Company X's Development department wants to restore the devel.db database that was previously backed up.
To restore devel.db to a new database from a full backup:
Enter the following command:
prorest newdev /dev/rrm/0m
The newdev.db database is an empty database. The 9-track tape drive (/dev/rrm/0m) specifies the device from which the full backup is being restored.
As the restore begins, the following report appears:
This is a full backup of /usr1/develop/devel.db. (6759)
This backup was taken Wed Nov 18 15:34:43 1999. (6760)
The blocksize is 1024. (6990)
It will require a minimum of 3065 blocks to restore. (6763)
Read 41 blocks in 00:00:02
This command restores the database devel.db from a tape to newdev.db. The report indicates that volume 1 is being processed.
2. Connect to newdev.db once the restore is complete.
