Applies to

  • Active IQ Unified Manager 9.6P1
  • various ONTAP 9.x

Issue

  • File restore via the UM restore function from a remote cluster snapshot adds a subfolder when using in place restore
  • This also affects the restore function via 3rd party software such as CommVault
  • There is no error since the restore succeeds, but an extra sub-folder is included in the restored path
While restoring with CommVault shows the same:
 
OCUM appends a directory to the destination path.
For instance when trying to restore “/FileData/tmp/file1_in_subdir_tmp.txt” using zapi “dp-restore-start”, UM restored it as “/FileData/tmp/tmp/file1_in_subdir_tmp.txt”.
