Using NetBackup to restore boot disk

Submitted by on November 19, 2005 – 11:13 pm 4 Comments

enable “Rename hard links”
disable “Rename soft links”

if root of destination drive is mounted as /destination/ then select “Restore to alternate path: from / to /destination/ , Restore search path

This is the alternate path for everything: root, var, opt, usr, etc.

For example, do not enter: “From / to /destination/var/” or you will get files restored to /destination/var/var/

    ‘The disk in the destination drive is full. Insert a new disk to continue.’

    It’s a LG KP500 phone. I have installed a new 4g memory card and formatted it.

    I’m trying to download it to the external memory.

    Step by step instructions on how to resolve ths problem would be most welcome.

    Thank you

    I just got one of those DELL mini laptops. They don’t have a floppy or a CD-ROM drive, but I would like to load a couple programs onto the device. Do I need to get an external CD-ROM drive to load the programs, or can I connect the mini laptop to another computer and use the CD-ROM drive of the other computer to load the program, choosing the mini laptop as the destination drive? Both computers are using Windows XP, so operating systems will not be an issue. Thanx!

    I’ve put two songs on there but I wont let me have any more, it says “the disk in the destination drive is full, please insert a new disk to continue” there’s no disk involved, I don’t understand. Any help would be wonderful.

    I keep getting the message that “destination drive is full”. The drive does take smaller avi files, and the 6G avi file did copy onto a smaller 100G mass storage drive.
