I am not able to see the mount points in a image backup when i tried to do a file level restore(wen clicked folders). So i did a very hard way to restore a single file(restored the entire VM and powered on with different name and IP an transferred the files).
Is there a way I can restore a file from the mount points for a linux server .
Do you mean you don't see files and folder structure when you try to browse? We've encountered issues like after changing the root password on the proxies. Additional steps were needed to get the passwords updated before we could browse the images.
Not all file systems types allow a FLR of a LINUX VM. (look it up on the EMC website for or manuals for the FS types supported for FLR)
most of mine did not allow a FLR until I got to Avamar version 7.2
and still some of mine do not.
I have to backup my Linux VM's as a vm once a week (just so we can recreate the VM)
and Daily as a physical server (meaning I install Avamar on the client and register it as a physical) this then allows me to do a single file restore.
I agree. NFS mounts are ignore in the guest backup. Here it is VM image backup and i am able to see the same folder when i restored the entire VM with different name and NIC's powered down.
We are using Avamar 7.2 and the linux version is linux 5.7
We have nearly 3000+ servers having Image backup , not sure if it would be recommended to have guest because of the workload impact on the ESX host.
So are you saying you cannot browse and see anything?
Or you can browse but cannot see what you are looking for?

I am able to browse all the other folders and files Except the mount point . However I was able to see the same when I restored the entire VM.
If you have Data Domain on the back-end, you could try Instant Access. This would save you writing all the data out to a production datastore just to pick up a few files.
