1 Planning for a Disaster Using Tivoli Storage Manager Laura G. Buckley Storage Solutions Specialists, Inc.

2 Objective Discuss how DRM assists in the recovery of the ADSM server and clients in a disaster Examine: The steps to install DRM DRM maintenance tasks The steps required to restore the ADSM Server and clients Disaster recovery media management with DRM October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 2

3 What is a Disaster? A catastrophic interruption of the business processing that destroys or disables an ADSM server, its clients or both. If you delete a file or lose a disk, restore it from an onsite storage pool If the site suffers a catastrophic failure, data is restored from an off-site source October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 3

4 Disaster Recovery The goal is to resume key business processing activities as quickly as possible Like an insurance policy How much are you willing to invest? What is the extent of the coverage? What are the risks? October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 4

5 Securing the Server If you want to get your ADSM server back after a disaster - every day you MUST: Backup the primary storage pools to copy storage pools Backup the ADSM database Backup the VOLHIST file Move the backup media to the offsite Mark the media as offsite Also a good idea to backup the DEVCONFIG file regularly October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 5

6 What Do You Need to Recover? Backup copies of client files Off-site backup copies of ADSM Server database and storage pools A current recovery plan Client recovery requirements October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 6

7 What is DRM? A separately licensed ADSM module Code is shipped with the ADSM Server Facilitates ADSM based DR by Providing and documenting a plan that can be tested, audited and is timely Documenting your recovery strategy Provides media management of DR media October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 7

8 Disaster Recovery Plan File Easy to create - just type PREPARE Comprised of two basic types of stanzas Textual information useful during a restore (i.e. system administrators name and phone number) Executable code (i.e. ADSM macros to create storage pools, scripts to create volumes on the server file system) Assumes that the recovery server has the same structure (directories, devices etc.) as the original server If the environment isn t the same, you must edit the file to reflect the differences October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 8

9 DR Plan File Stanzas Command stanzas Site-specific instruction stanzas Server requirements stanzas Configuration file stanzas Machine and recovery media stanzas October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 9

10 Customizing Disaster Recovery Manager Step 1: Define Server Information Step 2: Define DR Information for Clients Step 3: Create Instruction Stanzas Step 4: Modify DRM Server Settings Step 5: Execute PREPARE Command October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 10

11 Step 1: Define Server Information Define machine information for the ADSM Server Insert machine characteristics and recovery instructions for the server October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 11

12 Step 2: Define DR Information for Clients Define machine information for clients including machine location and business priority Insert machine characteristics and recovery instructions for clients Define client OS recovery media and associate client nodes with recovery media October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 12

13 Step 3: Create Instruction Stanzas Define site specific management and contact information Define offsite location and contact information Provide step by step server restoration instructions Define site specific instructions for restoring the database and storage pools October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 13

14 Step 4: Modify DRM Server Settings Set the Plan Prefix Set DRM Primary and Copy Storage Pools Set DRM location names (notmountable, courier, vault) Database backup retention period October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 14

15 Step 5: Execute PREPARE Command PREPARE command: Creates the Disaster Recovery Plan File Replaces older copies of the plan Should be scheduled after the storage pool and database backups are complete October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 15

16 DRM Off-site Media Management Location =Onsite Media State =ONSITERETRIEVE Location = Automated Tape Library Media State = MOUNTABLE Location = Courier Media State = COURIERRETRIEVE Location =Onsite Media State =NOTMOUNTABLE Location = Vault Media States = VAULT VAULTRETRIEVE Location = Courier Media State = COURIER October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 16

17 DRM Volume States Mountable Notmountable Courier Vault Vaultretrieve Courierretrieve Onsiteretrieve October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 17

18 MOVE DRMEDIA Command Identifies and tracks volumes moved offsite Identifies and tracks volumes moved from vault to onsite Tracks volumes states October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 18

19 QUERY DRMEDIA Command Displays information about DR volumes Copy storage pool volumes Database backup volumes Can be used to display only volumes in certain states For example to list volumes ready to be moved from vault back on-site October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 19

20 Daily Operations with DRM Perform client backups Create backup copies of primary storage pools Create backup copies of the database Execute PREPARE command Remove DR volumes from library Give DR volumes and DR Plan to courier Receive DR volumes from offsite Give courier list of expired volumes to come back from offsite Checkin scratch volumes October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 20

21 Recovering the Server Obtain the latest disaster recovery plan file Obtain the backup volumes from the vault Locate a suitable replacement machine Install the OS and ADSM on replacement machine Use planexpl.awk or manually break out disaster recovery plan file to view, update, print, and execute stanzas Review RECOVERY.SCRIPT.DISASTER. RECOVERY.MODE and RECOVERY.SCRIPT.NORMAL.MODE Execute RECOVERY.SCRIPT.DISASTER. RECOVERY.MODE and RECOVERY.SCRIPT.NORMAL.MODE October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 21

22 Recovering the Clients To recover ADSM clients, you must have the following information: Client machines that have been defined to ADSM, along with their location and restore priority value The boot recovery media Specific recovery instructions for the machine Hardware requirements for the machine To see the priority of machines query machine building=021 format=detailed query machine recoverymedia October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 22

23 Summary DRM s two major features offer the following possible advantages: Faster and easier ADSM server recovery More orderlier, well documented client recovery in the case of a disaster Easier, more efficient media management of DR media October 1, 1999 copyright 1999 Page 23
