How to mark a ssid/clone id as suspect/notsuspect without using scripts

February 22, 2012

This article if you have multiple savesets in suspect mode or not suspect mode and you want to change their mode one time without using scripts.

Firstly you will need to run the mminfo command to get the details of the savesets which are marked as suspect, run the following command:

mminfo -avot  -q suspect -r ssid,cloneid,volume

In which command will give you the set of ssid, cloneid and the volume name in which the savesets are marked as suspect.

Copy the output of the suspect save sets in an Microsoft Excel Sheet with the command on the first column and the ssid/clone id in the second column like the following example:

Command                                                 ssid/cloneid

nsrmm -y -o notsuspect  -S                      2617625/1346792

nsrmm -y -o notsuspect  -S                      3615675/1526718

nsrmm -y -o notsuspect  -S                      5317721/1746601

Then copy the list from the Microsoft Excel and then paste it in the Command Line (cmd) of the backup server where the commands will be running one by one automatically.

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.


The same method is used for deleting multiple save sets or clone id by using the nsrmm -d command

Replace the above example with the right command and the correct SSID or Clone id

Make sure the SSID’s before deletion as once deleted cannot be retrieved.
