Vxfs restore to linux ext3 filesystem on RHEL 5.5
November 16, 2010 04:49AM
Quick question, I'm trying to get confirmation to the following question :

Can you restore a file from vxfs file system to an ext3 file system ?

There is nothing fancy like checkpoint etc on the source file system, I believe block sizes need to match up for a successful restore ... can anyone clarify please ?

Many thanks in advance

How are you backing up the data? If it is a file level backup, then the source or destination file system shouldn't matter. From BAR, you can select the client with the vxfs file system as the source and the linux client as your destination. I don't think block size matters, because the file system will take care of that all on its own under the covers.

If you are doing any type of block level replication outside of NBU and want to mount the replicated volume, you have more than the file system differences to deal with.

Hi,

I have similar case, it will give you an error (95), even though the files restored looked fine.

This operation is not supported by Symantec see bellow (backup in vxfs and restore to ext3). Some of my cases cannot be accepted because the logs will be checked by the audit.

Regards,

Iwan
