Hi Guys:

I'm usng Symantec Backup Exec 10.1d, I need to restore a weekly backup to another drive located in another server. Every time I try to run the restore the program automatically direct the restore to the same server. How can I change the path? Is there is anyway to do this without browsing the whole network (there are to many child domains and servers)? Do I need to run the catalog on th tapes first? Thanks for your cooperation.

When creating the restore job, there is an option called "File Redirection" in the left pane of the Restore panel. You would simply need to enable this option, then specify the drive and folder to which the backup should be restored.

If that feature is not enabled, the backup will be restored to the original location it was taken from, and may or may not overwrite the existing data there depending on your restore job's overwrite settings.

Hi Tigermatt:

Thanks for your very useful tip. At this time the server where I will restore the backup does have installed the Remote Agent but User difined selection
it does not appear on the User-defined Selections List. How do I add it?

You need to be restoring the backup directly from the Backup Exec Media Server at which it was taken. When you run the restore job, I'd go for the option to view Backups by Media, locate the appropriate tape, then choose the files/folders to restore.

You can then use File Set Redirection to redirect the restore to the appropriate location. If you need to restore to a different location on a remote server, map a drive from the Media Server to that location, then redirect the file set via the mapped drive.
