FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER question?

I have multiple Windows 2003 media servers that need to be decommissioned.  I need to be able to redirect restore from these media servers to another media server since they still have some active images.  The question I have here is that how do I specify multiple media servers in FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER?
 
For example three old media servers A, B, C go to one media server D

multiple entries are fine.
FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER A D
FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER B D
FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER C D

Re: FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER question?

you don't say what verion of netbackup you are on. Prior to 6 and the emm database,
the media servers have database info on them about the media.
 
if you are goin to power off the servers then I think you should move that info to another media server.
so you would have to id all media "owned" and have it moved to the new server.
I had to do this on version 4.5
bpmedia -movedb -ev $x -oldserver $1 -newserver $2

Re: FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER question?

I apologize for a little late on responding back to this thread.  I'm just now ready to decommission these media servers.  I'm currently running NBU6.0 on Windows 2003.
 
I actually had already moved all of the media to the new machine.  I was just not sure on how to configure the FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER for multiple media servers.
 
Thanks everyone for your responses.
