Ok, let’s get straight into the topic. The disk containing the Media Agent Index has been accidentially removed.


What are the possibilities to recover the lost Index on this specific Media Agent?


Thanks for any help.

Hi @CSS 

Index will automatically be recovered from Media as its stored on the same library as the jobs were stored.

Each data backup job produces its own index on a single MediaAgent. When the data backup has been completely written to a storage library, the system creates a copy of the index and moves the copy to the same library.

During a data backup operation, the action logs and the full index are backed up to the same storage library used for the data backup.


Please check out our documentation for more information around MediaAgent Recovery.
