    You need to have the BE remote agents installed, configured and running on those other servers. Otherwise you will have to restore the data first to the local server, then copy it to the other servers from within windows.

    Hi Gangadhar

    What are you restoring? normal files, Exchange, SQL?

    Are you trying to say that you are restoring data by inserting this tape on a different server with Veritas installed? If that is the case you need to first check if the other server is adopting this tape in the catalog. Don't remember the option offhand but I think you will have to make this tape adopted in the other server first.
    Otherwise if you are trying from the same server and redirecting to some other server, then what rindi says is correct that you need to have the remote agent installed on the other computer.

    Good Luck!
