We recently purchased a FAS2240 and I'm trying to move the domino backup processes from our current IBM TSM environment to the filer using the SC Domino plugin. I must have read all the available documentation regarding SC & the plugin itself on the web and although it nowhere mentions using SC in combination w/ CIFS I've managed to get it all working for the exception of the "Single file restore - Selectable up to the minute*" function.
For some reason the plugin is able to roll-forward the restored db (.nsf) using the transaction logs while using the "Single file restore - Up to the minute*" function, but fails to do so w/ the selectable function. This is the difference in log files between both:
Single file restore - Up to the minute (OK):

The following is a snippet from the API expert at IBM concerning how to handle restores with DAOS:
The preferred way to handle this (currently) with DAOS is to set the deletion interval to be the restore interval + 1 day. So if they only support restoring back 1 month for the data, then setting the deletion interval to 32 would cover this.
The other option is to restore the db, then manually do a tell daosmgr listnlo missing <dbname>, restore the missing nlo's, then do the copy/paste of the needed documents. If the recovered db is then deleted after this (at the os layer) a daos resync would be required. But if the domino API's are used to delete the recovered DB, then a resync should not be necessary.
As long as the DAOS deletion interval is equal to or greater than the Snapshot retention policy everything should be automatic.
If you need to support restore from DAOS further back, just adjust the DAOS deletion interval.
If your retention period is longer than the DAOS deletion interval then the manual processes will be necessary.
