Puredisk server Catalog restore

So let's say I have a local master server "master1" and a local media server "media1" and a remote media server (DR) "remotemedia1". 

I currently have both "media1" and "remotemedia1" set up as puredisk server with MSDP. 

So when I do catalog backup, I have my 1st copy backup to "media1" then duplicate to "remotemedia1". 

 

Now, let's say my local environment has been completely destroyed - so we need a DR ! 

** 1st thing I do is def rebuilding my master server. Now I will have to connect "master1" to "remotemedia1" .... since master1 is newly rebuilt, the previous relationship was broken. Does anyone know how I can reestablish this so I can do Catalog restore from the puredisk pool of remotemedia1? 

Any reference is appreciated. thanks!!

Storing catalog backup data

Storing catalog backup data in an MSDP pool is not advised.

Here is the process for restore:

I recommend writing your Catalog backup to tape and sending the tape to the DR site. Then you can just load the tape and perform the catalog restore. It's much easier.
