Start with Disaster Recovery Chapter (Chapter 5) in NBU Troubleshooting Guide:

You will have to develop a DR plan for your unique environment - we cannot provide you with step-by-step instructions.

You need to know how to recover the NBU master server and/or media server(s), have all necessary backup data and devices available at DR site, identify critical systems that need to be recovered.

You may want to consider BMR for full system restores. 
See BMR Admin Guide:

There are also lots of DR TechNotes and WhitePapers published by Symantec.

Herewith a list of TN's shared by Alex Davies at Vision in 2010:   – conditions for support for catalog replication   – guide to site recovery operations  – replicating catalogs with non-clustered master servers   – replicating catalogs with clustered master servers   – recovery procedures for dual domain catalog replication   – partial catalog recovery/recovery without import   – recovering catalog backups from advanced disk storage  – recovering catalog backups from duplicate copies

Some newer TNs:  - About catalog recovery from disk devices in NetBackup 7.0 and 7.1  - Recovering the entire NetBackup 7.0 or 7.1 catalog using bprecover -wizard  - Catalog recovery from copy 2 on an OST device  - More information about usage of the "nbcatsync"

So, there is no 'one-size-fits-all' DR solution.... You need go through all the available documentation and decide on a solution that will work for YOUR environment.

Then, do regular DR tests to perfect your own step-by-step process.
