Basically, we have 2 totally separate independent windows domain/forest environment.Each domain environment has its own Windows Netbackup v5.0 MP2 master server and tape library which are identical.My question is about the feasibility for restoring files using media(s) which are used / backed up by first Netbackup master server onto second Netbackup master server in the other environment. If this is possible, as far as I know the steps might only involve :
1. Take out the media (s) including catalog media from the original master server library .
2. Put the media (s) above into the other library on the other environment.
3. Initiate 'import catalog'on the destination master server
4. Follow thru backup, archive, and restore process
I understand for normal restoration on the same master sever, it is possible to do restore files on different host than the host where the files are backed up from, but whether it is possible to do that in this situation (doing the restoration on totally different hostname and environment).
