This issue has been solved. See solution.


Sory for a stupid question but with bprestore I can restore from copy 2 by using the --copy option.

Is there a way of doing that in the NetBackup Admin Console?

See this TN:

How to restore from a different copy of the backup

To restore using the NetBackup Administration console:
1. Create the following text file on the Master Server.
2. Enter the copy number to use as a single line of text within this file.
3. Remove the ".txt" extension from the file
4. Then restore from the Backup, Archive and Restore section of the NetBackup Administration console.

 5. Once the restore is complete then move or rename the ALT_RESTORE_COPY_NUMBER file so the primary copy will be used for all future restores.

I was hoping for a simple click there solution.
It will be manual intervention in any case.

I now got three methods of restoring from copy 2, which is good.
