By default, NetBackup permits only the client that backs up files to restore those files. NetBackup ensures that the client name of the requesting client matches the peer name that was used to connect to the NetBackup server.
Unless clients share an IP address, the peer name is equivalent to the client's host name. (Clients can share an IP address due to the use of a gateway and token ring combination, or multiple connections.) When a client connects through a gateway, the gateway can use its own peer name to make the connection.
The client name is found in the following locations:
In the NetBackup Administration Console, in the toolbar, select File > Backup, Archive, and Restore. In the Backup, Archive, and Restore dialog box, in the toolbar, select File > Specify NetBackup Machines and Policy Type. The client name that is selected as Source Client for Restores is the source of the backups to be restored.
In the Backup, Archive, and Restore dialog box, select select File > Specify NetBackup Machines and Policy Type. In the Specify NetBackup Machines and Policy Type dialog box, select the client name as the Source client for restores.
