Please share all the steps that you have performed.
Where is the DR file located?
What is the media that is listed in the DR-file?
Disk STU or tape?
Is this media listed in the DR-file available?
If tape - have you added it to the robot and ensure it is in CatalogBackup pool?
Status 83 is "media open error".
On what media is the catalog located on (disk, tape, MSDP )?
A catalog restore can't be done from the bare metal - you need at least a empty EMM database for the recovery to work. Please see this tech note:
How to create a blank NetBackup NBDB database for the recovery of the NetBackup NBDB database from an online catalog backup in case of corruption or failure.
BPDM is used for disk based backup and restore jobs. If catalog is running this command, it might not be able to get the disk storage where catalog backup was taken. Please make sure that backup is kept in the same location on disk as in old server.
Don't know about disk based catalog backup, but with tape based catalog backups you can need to change the media server in DR file to the new media server.
Unfortunately you can't see the activity monitor while catalog recovery is running, this would show if the wrong media server was used.
The DR was located on Disk STU.
You know when you have Disk STU, it change and ID when attach to new system.
Followed the Procedure by Veritas Enterprise Engineer and created Temp directory and restored it.
Things now fine.
Sorry for the late response.
