Kind of.

Reinstall NBU as a master on the 'media server' using the same exactly the same hostname.
Then recover the catalog - steps to do this are in the NBU Troubleshooting Guide.

Wouldnt this be basically the same thing as installing a fresh/new server?

Hi hellomam,

Convert media server in master server is not possible. To resolve this issue, uninstall media server and re-install as the master server and media server (2 functions).

I hope that your Netbackup database (EMM) is accessible yet, if not, you will install a new netbackup master server.

Regards.
