Job metadata imported to a new DSA environment should be validated against the original exported metadata before you attempt to restore the job.
The validate_job_metadata command only works with NetBackup. To validate a save set for a remote file system and DD Boost, run an analyze read job.
  1. Type dsc validate_job_metadata followed by the parameters, and press Enter.
    Parameters Description
    n|name Name The name of the job on which to perform the action. The job must be active.
    v|backup_version BackupVersion [Optional] Backup version number. Enter latest or 0 for the latest save set.
    V [Optional] Indicates that this is a virtual target group.
    d|destination SampDest Required if the virtual target group (parameter V) is specified. It indicates the physical target group to which the virtual target group is mapped.
    In the following example, SDBA_Weekly is the job name and tg_cbar3 is the destination: cbar3:/SDBA_Weekly_imports # dsc validate_job_metadata -n SDBA_Weekly -V -d tg_cbar3.
  2. Type dsc list_validate_job_metadata followed by the parameters, and press Enter.
    Parameters Description
    n|name Name The name of the job on which to perform the action. The job must be active.
    v|backup_version BackupVersion [Optional] Backup version number. Enter latest or 0 for the latest save set.
