Marking a NetWorker saveset or clone as suspect/notsuspect

If you have multiple savesets in suspect mode or notsuspect mode and you want to change their mode without using scripts, you can follow these simple steps.

Listing suspect savesets

Firstly, we will need to run the mminfo command to get the details of the savesets which are marked as suspect, for example:

# mminfo -avot  -q suspect -r ssid,cloneid,volume
ssid       cloneid    volume
2482863644 1358793033 MC2936
2466086510 1342015817 MC2936
2449309346 1325238601 MC2974
2365423504 1140689365 MC2936
2348646289 1308461395 MC2974
2315091857 1056803286 MC2928

From the above output we see the saveset id, clone id and the volume in which savesets are marked as suspect.

TIP You could copy the output into a text file/spreadsheet if you want, so it's easier to make off which savesets you've updated;

Changing saveset status

Now you've confirmed that some of the savesets are not suspect, we can run the nsrmm command on the NetWorker server to change the status of the saveset, for example:

# nsrmm -y -o notsuspect -S 2482863644/1358793033
# nsrmm -y -o notsuspect -S 2466086510/1342015817
# nsrmm -y -o notsuspect -S 2315091857/1056803286

The list of the entire ssid/clone id will be marked as notsuspect and then can be shown for running a clone job or for a recovery.
