Is there a way to seed where you have a maste server on 4 offshore oil rigs that will eventually AIR to a 5240 Master on shore?

We don't seed Master Servers, nor generally do we seed Media Servers. What we can seed is an MSDP pool, which is a popular feature to deploy with a Media Server. I think a read of some Google hits is your best start:

Please tell us more about the 4 x offshore masters.
I guess we can assume that they all are master/media servers?
Are they NBU Appliances or BYO master/media server with MSDP?
And the 5240 Master/media server?
Is this the only media server in the onshore environment, or are there more media servers?
There is a way to use USB/NAS disk as BasicDisk to seed backups, but a bit more challenging when using NBU Appliances.
If we know more about the config at each site/master, then we may be able to figure out a way to get this method to work:

If you have a client backup on the 5240 that has similar data to one or more oil rigs, you can have a look at steps outlined in https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.TECH144437
The procedure described in the solution of this post will work to get the 1st BasicDisk backup, but in all honesty - I don't know how to present the USB drive to the 5240 master server in order to import the data.
Hopefully someone with more hands-on Appliance experience can help here.
Another option would be to copy actual data on oil rig server(s) onto a USB drive, attach the USB drive to a client at the main site, run backup to 5240 MSDP pool. Use method in TECH144437 to seed oil rig client names.
