This issue has been solved. See solution.

HI there,

I would like to perform a BMR restore of a client to a host with the same hardware platform but will have different MAC address. Is there a way to do this?

Can I manually edit the MAC addresses in the Bare Metal Client List? 

Thanks!

I have managed to make a compy of the client configuration. Then when I go to 'Prepare to Restore' I get this error:
 
'bmrprep' could not complete the requested operation. Please see logs for additional information.
The Shared Resource Tree "Solaris9" could not be shared by the the Boot Server hosting it. Please verify that the required configuration in the Boot Server is correct. The nfs daemons and configuration files need to be properly working for this operation to work.

For performing Dissimilar System Restore (DSR) for Unixes, you need to refer below technote. DSR for Unix is supported via technote.

As far as above error message, I believe you are doing NW based BMR recovery. For this you will need NFS, DHCP services running on the boot server. Verify on you Boot server if they are running.

You can also try Media based recovery. In case of Media based recovery, these services are not required to be enabled on Boot Server.

Please refer BMR admin guide for more details.

Thanks,
