How to restore client file index db so you can do a directed recover

How to restore client file index db so you can do a directed recover

How to restore client file index db so you can do a directed recover

(OP)
Task: to recover one directory from a volume that is past its browse policy.

My current solution: run MMRECOV on volume and then do a save set recovery till the required directory is restored then abandon the recover.  (I'm recovering to effectively a blank box).

A better way ?:
Scanner -i should rebuild both indexes but I'm not confident in it.  It either comes up "not enough disk space" so abandons or if you use -S to specify saveset it seems to hang.

RE: How to restore client file index db so you can do a directed recover

NearlyWorked,

Is there a space problem where your indexes are being written to?  I've used scanner -i many times in Solaris-Networker 5.5.1 without a problem. Scanner does rebuild the client and media indexes at the expense of 220b per file  being restored to the client index.  That adds up quickly if your restoring a 75GB tape.
