Netbackup 6.5 Archive questions

Created: 24 Feb 2010 • Updated: 24 Aug 2010 | 1 comment
So I'm wanting to put together an archive process in our environment but have a few questions regarding the functionality of the archive option.

1) It seems I can only do an archive as well as an archive restore from the source system?  I'd really like to be able to initiate the archive when I'm
logged into the main Administration Console on the master server, but it doesn't seem to be possible.

2) It seems I can only restore from these archives from the source system?  Again, I'd really like to be able to restore from the Admin Console.  In fact,
if this host were to be retired I'd need a way to restore from these archives.

Is there any definitive source of documentation on user-based archives for Netbackup 6.5?  I've looked around in all the admin guides and such and have not
found much information on user archives

1. It's not possible
2. You can restore from BAR but you have to change restore type to Archive. If you want to restore on different machine look for "No.Restricions" parameter in NB admin guide
