How to add client from another domain.
So, have two appliances, using AIR with SLP's to make the second one a disaster recovery resource.
Went to test restoring, and got confused. So, i'm using BAR in the second domain -- so figured have to add the client I backed up and SLP'd over to the DR domain.
Figured the best way to add the client to the domain was to create a backup policy with it in. After all, the client software is already installed. So, now it shows up in my "Clients" list.
BUT I can't do anything with it, since the master server in the DR domain (the 5220) isn't one of it's allowed servers. I have already successfully went from my original (source) domain and added the FQDN of the master server in the DR domain, but obvious, if we're in a distaster scenario, my source domain isn't there.
I did find the regedit on the client (it's windows, should have mentioned that), and I think that did the trick.
BUT in a real disaster, YUCK, regediting machines before you restore them? What am I missing.
Maybe there's an easy way to "import" a client that already has the NetBackup client software on it, and is a client in another domain
Oh, version 188.8.131.52 all around
Thanks for any tips, and sorry in advance if this is a dumb question!
