“My last day before I was taking time off to get married and go on a week-long honeymoon, I inadvertently deleted a catalog index for our TSO catalog, no less! With the help of CIM, I was able to restore the most recent backup of the catalog and then forward recover, using SMF records. The whole process took less than 30 minutes, and I was still able to get to the church on time.”
