Networker restore to different client

I need to recover some old data from backup tapes created with EMC Networker a while back. We stopped using Networker a couple of years ago. I have installed Networker on a server, and can see the save set that I need to recover from the tapes. My problem is the client that the save set belongs to no longer exists. Is there any way to make Networker restore data to a different client\place?

Yes - it's a redirected restore. Install the NetWorker client on the host you want to restore to, then select the save set and destination from the client. That's pretty much all there is to it...

Turns out I was having trouble because the old server used NDMP to back this data up, so I had to mimic the same environment on our new SAN. It was a bit more complex than just a redirected restore, but I figured it out with the help of EMC support. Thanks for your input meyersd.
