Customer wants to check that data can be backed up on a spare server in case they need to replace production Publisher in the future. The production UCM cluster is running 6.1.3 (Publisher and single Subsriber). Problem is that I wasn't able to restore data from a backup. These are the steps performed:
Installed 6.1.2 from DVD
Installed 6.1.3 patch (this patch provided 1 demo node license).
Start Services on UCM.
Run Restore from a backup taken from the production ucm few days ago.
When I run restore after a few minutes I get an error message 'No features found in backup'.
I can verify through UCM administation pages that the backup was unsuccessful.
Has anybody come across this before or know why I am geeting this error message?
I think what Michael is referring to is this line from your first post;
"I can verify through UCM administation pages that the backup was unsuccessful".
Where I think you meant to put in "Restore" rather than "Backup" :)
So it seems that the problem here is likely with the Backup rather than the Restore. Have a look at the "Features" that you asked the DRS to Backup and maybe try running a new Manual Backup with the following (as needed)
Supported Features and Components
Disaster Recovery System can back up and restore the **features and components that are shown in table Table 3. For each feature that you choose, the system backs up all of its components automatically.
Table 3 Supported Features and Components
CCM (CCM/CAR/CDR Repository Manager)
Cisco Unified Communications Manager database (CCMDB) includes Cisco Unified Communications Manager/CDR Analysis and Reporting/Call Detail Records)
(MOH) Music On Hold Audio Files
BAT Bulk Provisioing Service(BPS)
CCMPREFS Preference files
TFTP (TFTP Phone device files)
SYSLOGAGT SNMP (SNMP syslog component)
CDPAGT SNMP (SNMP cdp subagent)
TCT(trace collection tool)
CLM cluster Manager

No feature got selected for backup.
Hope this helps!
