Specify a NDMP serial restore operation

You can use the RESTORE_OPTIONS environment variable to specify a serial (single-threaded) restore operation.

Procedure

  1. In your data management application, configure a restore operation as you normally would.
  2. Make sure that the RESTORE_OPTIONS environment variable is set to 1 on your data management application.
    If the RESTORE_OPTIONS environment variable is not already set to 1, specify the isi ndmp settings variables modify command from the OneFS command line. The following command specifies serial restore for the /ifs/data/projects directory:
    isi ndmp settings variables modify /ifs/data/projects RESTORE_OPTIONS 1  

    The value of the path option must match the FILESYSTEM environment variable that is set during the backup operation. The value that you specify for the name option is case sensitive.

  3. Start the restore operation.
