I have made a duplicate of all my backup jobs. I have also made duplicate of catalog media. Now I am trying to restore all jobs in another server (different of my master server). I have given of my restore server the same name of my master server (the machine is not in network, because I have a driver unit separate) and I have used bprecover command for restore catalog media:
bprecover -r ALL -m DP428S -d dlt2
The recover is Ok. Now I have not understood as I can restored my backup. Import in 2 phases?
thank's a lot

You do not have to do the import phases because the bprecover already rebuilt the catalog for you. You now need to promote copy2 (duplicate) to become the primary copy for restores.
1. determine backup images on the tape bpimmedia -mediaid 2. to view the "primary copy" to be used for restore bpimagelist -L backupid yourname_101100110 | grep Primary 3. to promote duplicate copy to primary bpimage -npc 2 backupid yourname_101100110 -client yourname 4. redo step 2 to confirm
