2 Introduction
This guide helps you protect the valuable data stored on your HP NetServer using
your Stac Replica backup software.
The guide tells you how to install, set up, and use the software. It also provides
instructions for caring for your HP SureStore tape drive and tells you where to
find information on performing tape diagnostics.
The Replica Solution for Server Backup
With Stac Replica for HP SureStore Tape, you get a powerful backup program
that makes file backup as easy as pressing a button.
Designed for ease-of-use, Replica provides desktop shortcuts that allow you to
quickly configure automatic daily backups, perform immediate backups, and
restore files and folders from your backup tape--without special training or
expertise.
The HP SureStore Tape edition of Replica includes a Configuration Wizard that
walks you through the process of setting up a default configuration that
automatically backs up designated volumes at the same time, every day. All you
have to do is make sure that a tape cartridge is inserted in the server’s HP
SureStore tape drive.
Replica also provides a desktop shortcut for performing one-step, unscheduled
backups any time you wish. Opening the shortcut starts an immediate backup of
the same volumes you designated for backup with the Configuration Wizard.
Once the server data is backed up, it is just as easy to restore lost or damaged
files by mounting the appropriate backup tape as a volume that your server
recognizes as a removable drive. After the tape is mounted, you can use the
familiar Windows Explorer, or File Manager to copy the files to the desired
location.
What Version of Software Do I Have?
Stac Replica for HP SureStore Tape contains device drivers for both the T20 and
T4 tape devices. It is available in two editions:
• The CD-ROM for product number C4396A is titled "HP SureStore Tape,
Backup & Disaster Recovery, Replica Single Server for HP SureStore
Tape." This edition provides a complete disaster recovery feature.

Installing Replica for NetWare
This section provides instructions for installing Replica and its related files on an
HP NetServer running NetWare 4.2.
NOTE
For best results, always close any applications running on the
HP NetServer before starting the Replica installation.
What You Need
Before you can install Replica and begin backing up server files, you need the
following:
For the host server:
• An HP NetServer running Novell NetWare 4.2
• At least 16 MB RAM
• At least 5 MB free disk space in the SYS volume
• At least one supported HP SureStore T20 tape drive and a blank tape
cartridge
9
Chapter 3
Installing Replica
For the administration PC:
• Windows 95 or Windows 98
• At least 8 MB RAM
• At least 4 MB free disk space
• A 1.44 MB floppy disk drive
• A network connection to the servers protected by Replica
• Administrator privileges for server access
NOTE
For successful installation of Replica on the NetWare server,
Windows 95 or Windows 98 must be running on the
administration PC. Installing from any other operating system
will result in an incorrect installation.
Determining the Version of Replica to Install
Your HP SureStore CD contains two versions of Stac Replica for NetWare 4.2.
One version should be used on systems that are NWPA-based and the other
version should be used on systems that are DDFS-based. Before you attempt to
install Stac Replica on your NetWare 4.2 system you must determine which
version of Stac Replica you should install. If you install the wrong version,
Replica will not be able to detect the tape device and you will have to de-install
the installed version and then install the correct version.
You can determine whether your system is NWPA-based or DDFS-based by
examining the file extension for your system’s disk device driver file. To do this,
view NetWare’s STARTUP.NCF file and examine the LOAD statements that are
used to load the disk device driver. If the extension for the disk device driver file
is ".DSK" your system is a DDFS-based system. If the extension for the disk
device driver file is ".HAM", your system is a NWPA-based system.
To view the STARTUP.NCF file, from the NetWare console screen enter LOAD
INSTALL. The system will display the "Installation Options" screen. At the
"Installation Options" screen, highlight the "NCF file options" line and press
ENTER. At the "Available NCF Files Options" screen, highlight the "Edit
STARTUP.NCF file" line and press ENTER. Accept the default path displayed in
the "Specify a server boot path …" window. The contents of the STARTUP.NCF
file should now be displayed.
10
Chapter 3
Installing Replica
If you used the Installation Assistant feature of the HP NetServer Navigator CD
to install NetWare 4.2, your STARTUP.NCF file will probably contain a load
statement that reads "LOAD AIC78XX.DSK …" which means that your system
is DDFS-based, or "LOAD AHA2940.HAM …" which means that your system is
NWPA-based. If you don't see one of these LOAD statements, look for a LOAD
statement where the file name extension for the file is .DSK or .HAM.
Press ESC to close the STARTUP.NCF file window.
Installing Replica for Novell NetWare 4.2
There are two options for installing Replica for Novell NetWare 4.2.
• Install using the HP SureStore CD's graphical interface.
• Install using the Replica SETUP.EXE program.
To install Replica on an HP NetServer running Novell NetWare 4.2 using the
HP SureStore CD’s graphical user interface:
1. From an administration PC running Windows 95 or Windows 98, log in
to the server as supervisor (or as a user with equivalent privileges).
2. Map a drive letter to the HP NetServer's SYS volume.
3. Insert the HP SureStore Tape CD-ROM in the administration PC's CDROM drive.
4. If you have the autorun feature enabled on your PC, the HP SureStore
Tape CD installer will start up. Select the language, select "Install
Software", and then follow the on-screen prompts to complete the
installation.
To install Replica on an HP NetServer running Novell NetWare 4.2 using the

4 Backing Up Your Data
This chapter provides instructions on the following topics:
• How to use Replica’s Configuration Wizard to quickly set up the
automatic backup of server volumes on a regular schedule.
• How to perform an immediate, "off-schedule" backup of the server
volumes you designated for automatic backup with the Wizard.
• Where to find information on creating the disaster recovery disks
necessary for using the disaster recovery feature.
Using Replica Shortcuts
Replica’s major functions are available as desktop shortcuts. Using these "onebutton" shortcuts, you can quickly configure an automatic backup or restore lost
files without having to navigate complex arrays of menus and windows. (You
also have the option of opening the Replica application through the Program
Manager.)
A Configuration Wizard shortcut starts a Wizard that walks you
through a complete configuration in just a few minutes.
An immediate backup shortcut starts Replica and performs a backup of
the volumes you designated for backup with the configuration Wizard.
(When you click this shortcut, no confirmation screen appears, and the
backup starts immediately.)
A restore files shortcut starts the Replica application and displays the
Mount window where you prepare for file restoration by mounting the
backup tape as a server volume.

Backing Up Your Data
When the update is complete, the configuration you created with the Wizard
becomes the default backup configuration--Replica automatically performs the
verification and backup at the scheduled time.
NOTE
In addition to the automatic backup you configured with the
Wizard, you can also perform an immediate, unscheduled
backup of the same volumes you selected for the configuration.
For more information, see the following section, "Performing
an Immediate Backup."
Performing an Immediate Backup
In addition to the automatic backup you configured with the Wizard, you can use
the immediate backup shortcut to perform an "off-schedule" backup of the same
volumes you designated for regular backup--at any time.
Immediate backup is entirely automatic; when you open the shortcut, Replica
starts, verifies the job, and begins backing up the designated volumes to the tape
currently mounted in the target tape drive.
NOTE
When you select immediate backup, there is no verification
screen. Backup begins immediately.
To perform an immediate backup:
1. Insert a blank tape cartridge in the HP SureStore tape drive.
2. From the desktop or Start menu under the Replica Program Group, open
the immediate backup shortcut.
Replica immediately begins backing up the volumes designated in the
configuration.
During the backup, the Replica Status window provides information about
the current backup operation (and any scheduled backups). Check the
lower left corner of the window for messages about the window and
Replica operations.
3. Click the Progress button in the Status window to track the progress of
the backup.

5 Restoring Files and Folders
In case of hardware failure or accidental erasure of files, you can use Stac
Replica’s restore files shortcut to mount the appropriate backup tape as a
removable drive, then restore the lost or damaged files by simply copying the
originals to the desired location.
Restoration is a three-step process: mounting the backup tape as a drive, copying
the files to the desired location, then dismounting the tape volume.
The figure below illustrates the procedure for restoring files from a backup tape
mounted as a removable drive.

Chapter 5
Restoring Files and Folders
Optimizing Replica File Protection
Although Stac Replica for HP SureStore Tape Edition is optimized for backing
up and restoring data files, there are steps you can take to optimize Replica’s file
protection capabilities.
Separate your data files from system files by storing the data files on volumes
other than the drive on which the operating system is installed (typically drive
C). When you separate your files in this way, the tape mount procedure described
earlier in this chapter to restore lost or damaged data files is practically 100%
effective.
Disaster Recovery Feature on the Single Server
Edition
The Single Server Edition of HP Stac Replica includes complete disaster recovery
facilities. If you created the Disaster Recovery disks and replicated the server
entirely, Replica can do a full disaster recovery that returns your server to its state
at the time of the last server backup. For complete instructions on recovering
from a disaster, review the chapter on Disaster Recovery in the Replica for
SureStore Tape User’s Guide stored on the HP SureStore Tape CD-ROM.
Recovering a System Volume When You Don’t
Have Disaster Recovery
If you have a version of Replica that does not have the disaster recovery feature,
you can still recover your system files by reinstalling the network operating
system. Use the following instructions to manually recover a system volume
when you don’t have the disaster recovery feature. The procedures for recovering
Windows NT and NetWare system volumes are discussed separately.
Manually Recovering a Windows NT System Volume
If your Windows NT system volume is lost through disk failure or user error, you
can rebuild the base operating system manually by following the procedure
below.
To manually recover a Windows NT system volume:
1. Boot the HP NetServer from a DOS disk that can recognize the HP
NetServer’s CD-ROM drive.
38
Chapter 5
Restoring Files and Folders
2. Install the Windows NT operating system from the NOS installation
CD-ROM.
3. Use the Installer utility to restore the original partitions and format disk
volumes.
4. Reconstruct the original server configurations, including hardware setups,
passwords, and profiles.
5. Re-install your applications on the HP NetServer.
6. Re-install Replica software according to the instructions in Chapter 3.
7. Restart the HP NetServer and restore lost or damaged data files by using
the Restore feature described earlier in this chapter.
Manually Recovering a NetWare System Volume
If your NetWare system volume is lost through disk failure or user error, you can
restore the SYS volume if you’ve backed it up to tape.
To manually recover a NetWare system volume:
1. From the NetWare console, enter:
UNLOAD REPLICA
to unload the Replica NLM.
2. Enter:
LOAD REPLICA -NOCLIENTS
to load Replica in a safe mode.
By loading Replica in this mode, you won’t be able to use Replica, and
network users will be unable to log in to the server until the recovery is
complete.
3. Insert the tape containing the SYS you want to restore, then enter:
REPLICA RECOVER SYS
Replica locates the first SYS volume on the tape and asks for confirmation
before starting the recovery.
4. Enter YES to begin the recovery.
5. When the volume is recovered, shut down server and reboot.
39
6 Caring For Your Tape Drive
This chapter provides information about caring for your HP SureStore T20 tape
drive and its cartridge tapes.
Care of the Tape Drive
The HP SureStore T20 tape drive is simple to care for. No routine cleaning or
maintenance is required.
CAUTION
Do not clean the tape drive’s read-write head. Do not degauss
or demagnetize the tape drive’s read-write head. This will
damage the tape drive.
Choosing Tapes for Your Tape Drive
Your HP SureStore T20 tape drive is compatible with several types of tape
cartridges:
• High-capacity Travan 5 (TR-5) 20 GB mini-cartridge (QIC-3220 format),
one of which is supplied with the tape drive. This is the normal tape
cartridge you should use for your backup data.
• HP Colorado 5 GB mini-cartridges, which have a lower capacity than
TR-5 cartridges.
• TR-4 mini-cartridges. This is an older tape format that allows your T20 to
maintain compatibility with previously written tapes.
Various brands of tape cartridges will work with your tape drive. To ensure the
highest level of performance, HP brand tapes, which have been tested for
compatibility with your drive, are recommended. See the HP NetServer Support
web site for updates to this list.
41
Chapter 6
Caring For Your Tape Drive
Erasing Tapes
The Erase or Format utility provided by most backup applications is the safest
and quickest method of removing data from your tapes.
NOTE
Do not erase tapes with bulk erasers. Magnetic bulk erasing
removes the tracking reference points that are placed on the
tape at the factory. Without these points, the tapes cannot be
read by your tape drive.
Inserting and Removing Tape Cartridges
This section provides some basic guidelines for inserting and removing tape
cartridges.
To insert a tape cartridge into your drive:
1. Hold the tape cartridge with the metal base plate down and the tape
window facing the drive.
2. Align the tape cartridge with the tape drive’s opening and push it firmly
into the drive.
After the cartridge is inserted, you will hear the sound of the tape being
wound back and forth. This sound indicates that the tape drive is finding
the beginning of the tape, determining the tape’s length and format, and
positioning the drive’s read-write head.
42
Chapter 6
Caring For Your Tape Drive
The back of the cartridge
will be flush with the
recessed bezel.
Figure 6-1. Inserting the Tape Cartridge
CAUTION
Interfering with a tape cartridge during operations can cause
data loss and may make the tape temporarily unrecordable.
During read-write operations (while the operation light on the
front panel is flashing), do not:
Pull the tape cartridge out of the drive
Bump the tape cartridge
Turn off the power to the computer
If this does happen, you may not be able to read the data
currently written to the tape. In addition, the tape may not be
recordable until it is erased with an Erase utility.
43
Chapter 6
Caring For Your Tape Drive
To remove a tape cartridge from the drive:
1. Wait until the operation light on the front of your tape drive stops
blinking and your backup software indicates that it is all right to remove
the tape cartridge. Do not remove a tape cartridge during an operation.
See the Caution above.
2. Grasp the tape cartridge firmly and pull it straight out of the drive.
Write-Protecting a Tape Cartridge
If you write-protect a tape cartridge, the tape drive can only read data from the
tape, not write to it. Use this setting to protect data on the tape cartridge from
being erased or overwritten, for example, when you are restoring files from tape.
• To write-protect a cartridge, slide the write-protect tab on the cartridge to
the right.
• To remove write-protection from a cartridge, slide the write-protect tab to
the left.
See Figure 6-2 to see how the write-protect tabs appear on the cartridge.

Chapter 6
Caring For Your Tape Drive
Caring for Your Tape Cartridges
Your data is valuable. Treat cartridges with respect so that they provide you with
the security you need. Follow these guidelines for handling tape cartridges:
• Do not open the tape door unnecessarily. This may expose the tape to
contamination or damage.
• Do not touch the tape or leader. Dust and natural skin oils can affect tape
performance.
Operating Conditions
Tape cartridges should be used in an environment within the same operational
ranges as an HP NetServer:
Temperature:
Operating
5º C to 45º C
Non-operating
-40º C to 65º C
Humidity
Operating
Relative humidity of 20% to 80% (non-condensing)
Non-operating
Relative humidity of 5% to 95% (non-condensing)
NOTE
If a cartridge has been exposed to conditions outside its
operating range, you should acclimatize the cartridge by
leaving it in the operating environment for 8 hours before
using it.
Storing Tape Cartridges
Tape cartridges should be stored safely to ensure that they perform their desired
role: protecting your data.
• Do not place tape cartridges near sources of electromagnetic interference,
such as under a telephone, or near computer monitors, motors, video, or
X-ray equipment.
• Keep cartridges out of direct sunlight and away from heaters.
45
Chapter 6
Caring For Your Tape Drive
• Store cartridges in their plastic cases in an environment that is free
from dust.
