Need to restore backup from a tape on different master server

Hi All ,

 

We are going to do data migration form location A(source) to location B(destination).Now we have netbackup master servers at both location .

We are planning to take backup of data from location A file servers on tape through netbackup and restore it at location B using different netbackup master server.

Just wanted to know the feasiblity for this .Also if its possible can you let me know the steps .

"Permission denied to restore

"Permission denied to restore on Root fs " You need to restore somewhere else. Look at your filer documentation. Or check filer for filesystem layout and specify subfolder.

Is MasterB going to do

Is MasterB going to do backups as well? Or just restores? If restores only, you have a number of choices : 1) Prepare MasterB with same hostname and NBU version as MasterA. Use catalog backup and restore to bring catalogs to MasterB. 2) Use Recovery Without Import (search this forum or Symantec site for URL to TN and WhitePaper). 3) Use Import utility in Catalog section of the GUI on MasterB to perform phase 1 and 2 import of tapes from MasterA. This is a lengthy procedure that will take about as long as the backups did. You may want to consider dedupe storage that will enable you to configure AIR (Automatic Image Replication ) between sites. Speak to your Symantec reseller.

Browse for siteA client

Browse for siteA client backups in BAR (Backup Archive & Restore). Specify machine names: Server: masterB Source Client: clientA (must match client name used in siteA policy) Destination Client : clientB Policy Type: (must match siteA policy type).
