Restoring Veritas Backup Exec backup to a different server


I was wondering if it is possible to restore a backup created with Veritas Backup Exec Version 9.1 Rev. 4691 from one server to another.  Here is the scenario:  Server A died.  We stood up Server B.  We want to take the backups from Server A and restore them to Server B.  How would I go about doing this in Veritas Backup Exec?

there is a File Redirection option within the restore screen. You can point the files to any share on the network from there i.e. server 2.

good luck!

The above poster is correct as far as the redirected restore. The only thing that I have to add is you may too install the backupexc remote agent on the server you want to restore to. You may not need to do this but if it doesnt work with the shared path try this.

I have installed backupexec remote agent and am trying the redirect restore now.  I'll update after the process is complete.
