This issue has been solved. See solution.


We have a standalone NBU 6.5.4 Master server on Solaris sparc platform. We are planning to install a Geo cluster for the master server and migrate the existing setup there without affecting the production. What is the best way to achieve this

Is it possible to import the catalog backup to the new 7.5.4 Cluster

Backups can be imported from tape or disk, but catalogs cannot be imported.
Non-clustered catalogs can be upgraded to new version non-clustered NBU.
It is not possible to upgrade or migrate non-clustered installation to clustered installation without the assistance of a Consulting Partner.
Contact your local Symantec office for nearest Consulting Partner details.

*** EDIT ****

See this TN:

DOCUMENTATION: How to migrate the NetBackup catalog information from one platform to another (UNIX to Windows or vice versa), rename a Master Server, cluster an existing Master Server, or merge multiple NetBackup domains.
