Dear All

This document is very helpful to all those users who are new to Netbackup 7.0 and have never performed restoration on Netbackup server.Restoration is not a very big task but for those who did not perform it ever, this document will provide a step by step guide to restore the data from Tape.

I have created this document in my own test LAB and I have performed successful restoration.I hope this will help to every needy person.

3. Select “Restore” from action menu, -> Choose “Restore everything to a different location (Maintaining existing structure)“ - > choose a alternate “Destination” for restore data - > “Start Restore” (we should restore data first on alternate location not on original location because there might be problem generate at the time of restoration).
