Restore a foreign server's data to a local server with a different name than the foreign server
I will front-load this post with my question:
How can I restore foreign data to a server that does not have the same name as the foreign server from which that backup was generated?
Here is my scenario:
Just did two new deployments of BE 2012 14.0 Rev 1798 last week. I maintain two seperate environments that do not talk to each other and have distinct naming schemes for servers.
In production, I back up a set of files (not a full server backup) from a server that we'll call ProductionFileServer1. This is not a full server backup. It is a subset of folders on drive D. Today, I brought my first LTO5 tape back from the Production environment and am trying to figure out how to restore data with redirection to a server we'll call CorporateDevelopment1. I am having a hard time figuring out how to do it.
Here is what I have done so far:
- Write-protected my Production tapes, imported them into the local Quantum library, did a scan/inventory/catalog, all good.
- Right-clicked on one of the imported tapes. No option to restore data.
- Went to the Restore section and attempt to restore data.
- I can't start a restore of SERVER1's data without it being in the list. The server ProductionFileServer1 will never be in the list for the domain of CorporateDevelopment1.
What do I need to do to get this data restored? I am unsure where to find the options I need to redirect a restore from a server that is not in my current environment.
