Using catalog backup and recovery to transfer NetBackup catalogs between UNIX or Linux master servers as part of a hardware refresh

So, install new Linux server with same hostname, install NBU to same path as on Solaris server (Solaris default is /opt. Please verify).
Patch NBU to 7.1.0.4, then recover catalog.

Just mount the NFS to same path on the Linux server and recover catalog.
