make_recovery and Mirror Copies

Hi friends.

Somebody advised me that the tape cartridge created by make_recovery is not able to restore the mirror configuration in a crash event, i.e., after using the cartridge to restore de system I would create/activate the mirror copies manually.

Is it true ?

Thanks in advance

Yes make_recovery doesn't restore the mirror configuration even though it shows all the system configuration in the mak_recovery log file. It requires to be done manually. I guess it is not done inorder to save time on recovery process.

Yes its true, by default mirrors are not restored. But you can configure make_recovery to re-mirror your disks after a restore (by adding a script to the restore which does all the exact commands needed to create the mirror).
