  • Hopefully you are talking hypothetically, and have not actually had a media server crash.

    In the event of a crash in which you are not bringing the media server back online, you will need a configuration entry in /usr/openv/netbackup/bp.conf in order to restore backups that went through that media server.

    FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER = oldserver newserver

  • You would also like to take a look at NetBackup-BMR (In-built DR tool) option. This can protect NB-Media server from disaster and built them back.
    Please check NetBackup BMR (Bare Metal Restore) admin guide for more information on this.

    Thanks.

  • you can rebuild the media server by other means
    and meanwhile you can restore using another media server
