I have personally used this method to migrate from Solaris SPARC to RHEL:

Using catalog backup and recovery to transfer NetBackup catalogs between UNIX or Linux master servers as part of a hardware refresh
http://www.veritas.com/docs/000041077

It works like a charm.

We created a BasicDisk Storage Unit on NFS mount for the catalog backup, mounted the share on the new master using the same mountpoint and recovered the catalog.
