This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi techies,

I got a request to perform a cross doamin restore where the NDMP backup has taken in X domain running in 6.5.6 UNIX . And the taget site Y domain is running in  7.5.0.4. Master server OS UNIX.

My query here is

1 ) Shall we perform cross domain restore for NDMP backup ?

2) Shall we perform cross domain restore for different NBU version ?

3) If so Please advise the steps to perform the activity.

Please tell us more about for plan and configuration.

If X domain's master can reach to destination NDMP host, just add it in X domain's NDMP host and initiate restore in X domain. Otherwise, if X domain's master can not talk to destination NDMP host, you need to import from tapes brought into Y domain.

Be sure both source and destination NDMP host must be same vendor. NDMP backup is not portable across vendors - NDMP backup on NetApp can not be restored to EMC for example.

Cross domain restore goes same with NDMP as with any other restore.As Yasuhisa mentioned , easy way is to add the destination NDMP host to original domain X and perform restore.Since there is no agent installed on NDMP host , NBU version does not matter but source and destination filer must be from same vendor .
