Restoring tape backups using an alternative media server

Generally, while restoring files, NetBackup expects to use the same media server and client that it used for the original backup. However, for disaster recovery, you use a different media server to restore the backup to a different client. The media servers and clients at the disaster recovery site are likely to have different names from those at the primary site.

NetBackup lets you configure failover restore media servers to handle restores in the event that the original media server is unavailable.

To configure failover restore media servers:

  • On Windows master server, you can configure failover restore media servers using the NetBackup Administration Console.

    Go to Host Properties > Master Server > Restore Failover.

  • On UNIX and Linux master servers , you must create FAILOVER_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER entry in the bp.conf file.
