Cant restore client indexes
June 05, 2017 11:59AM
OK, I should just go home ... in cleaning up disk space, I saw that I had
folder under the "index" folder that were the name of clients I had
deleted a long while ago. So, in my extreme "wisdom", I checked my current
clients in NMC; didn't see that name. So I did a "nsrck -YR" on the name,
confidently expecting it to tell me that it was not a valid client name
(because it wasn't).

You can see this coming, right?

Turns out that the old name was still listed as an alias of the client
that took it's place. So the "nsrck -YR" went and deleted the indexes of
the *new* client name. (i.e., client "dctrdbs009" had an alias of
"admndbs009", which was the old "dbs009" server. I did a "nsrck -YR
admndbs009").

I tried a nsrck -L7 admndbs009; no records. I tried a "nsrck -L7
dctrdbs009"; no records returned. So now I have no index for that client,
under either name.

<SIGH>

I opened a case with EMC, but haven't heard anything yet. I don't know how
to recover those indexes, if the "nsrck -L7" doesn't do it. Do I do a
mminfo for "index:admndbs009", and try and recover the last save of that?
Isn't that what "nsrck -L7" does (but more)?

Ideas, anyone? There were indexes there; I saw the free disk space go up
by 3G, so there was a bunch of them.

Never mind. It's been a long day (we rolled out a new VOIP phone system,
and ... well, anyway, the word "smooth" does not come to mind ...).

Anyway, yes, a did a mmino, and saw that the last CFI backup with all the
records was on Saturday, before the server ran out of disk space. So a
"nsrck -L7 -t 06/04/2017 dctrdbs009" seems to have restored it all.

Pay no mind to me. Sorry for the waste of bandwidth.
