CoBMR Selective Restore

Selective restores can be configured to restore certain file systems e.g. non-root mount points.

An example is below.

Setup the job in Cohesity.

  1. A protection job, configured as “Protect all local volumes” with the selected mount points excluded (in our test, this was “/data”)

  1. Another protection job, configured as below, with only /data selected

During restore:

The other protection job will show as a different volume group. These other can be unticked to prevent recovery of the /data volumegroup so the target disk (/dev/sda) doesn’t get partitioned with those volumes.

Continue recovery as normal.
