How do I perform a Save Set (full image) restore using Legato NetWorker?
NOTE: Before reading this article, Mirapoint highly recommends reading the latest version of the Mirapoint Backup and Restore Guide.
A Save Set recover is used to restore all backed up data from an NDMP image backup.
Using nwadmin to Restore User Data
This procedure assumes you are running NetWorker on a Solaris workstation.
The nwadmin main menu displays (see Figure 1 below).
Figure 2 nwadmin Save Set Drop-Down Menu
The Save Set Recover pop-up window displays (see Figure 3 below).

b. Click on the client to be used in this restore. The text box changes to reflect the new client setting, the pull-down list closes, and the Save Set pane populates with /usr/store.
5. Click Recover in the lower right-hand corner. The Save Set Recover Status pop-up window displays (see Figure 4 below).

You can watch both the recovery progress log written by NetWorker, and the messages from Mirapoint's NDMP service written to a file in the directory /usr/openv/networker/logs/ndmp on the NetWorker server.
When the full image recovery is complete, the log in /usr/openv/networker/logs/ndmp shows a message from Mirapoint's NDMP service indicating that you should reboot the Mirapoint appliance.
Do not reboot the appliance yet; you must first restore any incremental backups taken since the last full backup.
NOTE: NetWorker might report that the restore was complete in the progress log before the message indicating that you should reboot your appliance appears in NetWorker's NDMP log. Do not restore the incremental backups until the reboot message appears in the NDMP log. If you do, the recovery might not be successful.
Do not reboot the appliance until the final incremental backup is complete, and the reboot message appears in the NDMP log.
8. Reboot the Mirapoint appliance.
After reboot, this message displays on the Mirapoint appliance's front panel:
This indicates that the final steps of the image restore are being performed.
When the front panel indicates that the appliance is ready, the image recovery is complete.
