Single Database Restore OUTSIDE of Snap Creator
A new feature in SC 3.6 is the ability to restore a file from outside of Snap Creator then use SC to apply change info and logging. Essentially this will require that Snap Creator be called after a file is restored through Snap Drive using a new action called --action custom. This would typically be used in a FC/iSCSI environment for single database restore.
Here is an example of how this would be used:
Mount a snapshot as a drive letter using SDW. (I copied the snapshot name to a text file to be sure that I had the right one before mounting)
Copy a database from the temporary mount point to a location inside the Domino data directory (F:\Domino\data\restore\mail\<dbname>)
I tried this for a couple of times. When I am not using the restoretype, then the point-in-time is the snapshot-time - works fine. When I use u2m, the rollback of the logs is don up to now - workls also fine. But when I am using su2m with the restoretime parameter, it will be ignored. Allways a u2m is done, it does not matter which format I am using for the restoretime, seems to be ignored.
