Hi,

Is there any chance how to quickly create all /data0? file structures without avamar reinstallation? It's single node (AVE)


Thanks a lot

If /data01 is gone, you have no choice but to re-deploy.

Edit: Even if /data01 is present, I would still recommend re-deploying rather than trying to repair a damaged system like this. It will cause you less grief in the end.

Any chance to save configuration and/or license keys?

Is there a replication target? If so, you can restore the accounts, datasets, retention policies, groups, etc. from the replication target.

The license key is located in /usr/local/avamar/etc/license.xml. Two caveats:

  • The /usr/local/avamar tree is often symlinked to a directory in /data01 so it may be missing if /data01 is destroyed
  • The license is keyed to the hardware (even on VMs) so it can't be copied to a different system

It sounds like it might be a good idea to contact support so they can assess the state of the system. It's hard to say what can be recovered without knowing which filesystems and directories are intact and which are not.
