Even I dont understand what you say.

From where you are executing the bprecover command?

Is the catalog backup of windows or UNIX?

To which server you are trying to recover the catalog backup to?

As per you update i understand you have a windows master server.

I want restor a desastory backup on a Windows Master Server.

The backup of the catalog from the same server on which we are trying to restore the catalog.

"From where you are executing the bprecover command?"
I m executing bprecover command on our windows Master server

"Is the catalog backup of windows or UNIX?"
Windows

"To which server you are trying to recover the catalog backup to?"
We have only one master server.

Try using this command instead of bprecover -wizard:

C:\Program Files\Veritas\NetBackup\bin\admincmd\bprecover.exe -wizard

because bprecover is a unix command cannot be used in windows.  you should use bprecover.exe instead

Can you try and recover the catalog through JAVA GUI or ADMIN console this time and see whats happening there.

This is really strange.

A real quick question here - Is the host prd-dom-bck01 mentioned is the windows master server that you mentioned?
