go to host properties for the master server ---> general servers ---> Media host override ---> add...

in that mention the source and the destination media server..

and try the restoration... once the restoration is done, remove  the setting that has been done...

Thanks for the information Rakesh!

Please check if the other media server can 'talk' to ndmp data mover, I think this command should have helped to check it:

tpconfig -ddnh

Communication from both the media server is very fine..

Check your bprd logs in master server, look for something similar in this technote:

Probably a MPX issue...

I agree with watsons:

Check your bprd log in master server

bprd log on master will also tell us if FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER entry was found and if restore process was handed down to correct media server.

From there we can go to relevant media server and check bpbrm and bptm logs.

If bprd log on master server does not exist, please create the folder and restart NBU to enable the log.
Also ensure that bpbrm and bptm log folders exist on media server.
Retry the restore and check logs.

PS: PLEASE schedule upgrade of media servers as a matter of urgency.
