I would like to know what is the difference of the following.
What would be the scenarion if I am going to use the setup below?
Production has active NBU master server and DR site has active master server.
Production has active NBU master server and DR site has standby master server.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It means we can use AIR for active/active but we need a separate hostname for primary master and secondary master? Single Domain? or Dual Domain?
How about active standby, we can use the secondary site for catalog recovery and for restoration purposes.

Seems sound to me and other customers do that with no issues.
What do you describe as 'active standby'?
What exactly will be active?
In my opinion, active standby means cluster config with catalog mirrored or syncronous replication.
If not clustered, help us understand what 'active standby' means to you.
Where will you restore catalog backup from?
Have you ever tried that?
Are you aware of the additional steps needed to recover catalog from MSDP?
A NetBackup "domain" is not synonomous with an Active Directoty "domain".
When we say NetBackup domain... we mean a master, all of its media servers, and all of its clients.
I assume that you know what an AD domain is.
So, you could have one AD domain across two or more sites, buildings, countries etc... and have your first master server named mastera.mycompany.com and your second master server named masterb.mycompany.com. i.e. you have two NetBackup domains in the one AD domain. HTH.
