Did you do both phase 1 and phase 2 of the import?

Do you have the client name correct - check the import log (results tab of the catalog section) to make sure that you have the client names exactly as it was imported - as well as the data range and policy type

The Phase 1 part of the import will tell you all of that

Seems you can successfully browse the imported backups, right?

What happens if you try to restore data to different client name?

You don't need to create a policy.
Only requirement is for valid images in NBU catalog associated with original client name.

Restore data to same Client type - Standard to Unix/Linux, MS-Windows to Windows.

Ensure all of the following log folders exist:

On master: bprd (restart NBU to enable)

On media server: bptm and bpbrm

On destination client: bpcd and tar

Yes i have completed phase 1 and phase 2 successfully.i have created one temp client whose name is same as backup client ( not IP )

Yes as you can see in images i am able to see it in Media -> that tape contains data.

but still facing the problem to restore it .. AM I DOING SOMETHING WRONG HERE....

My master n media servers are on same machine.. and clients are all same..Solaris 10

Please specify the full path folders you are reffering ( as i m not fully aware )

Full path for these folder are,
 
/usr/openv/netbackup/logs
 
Same is applied for "Master server, Media server, Client".

Can you just try restoring the data (or some of it) locally to the media server for now to prove the data is OK

You could always copy it somewhere later then
