Normally, files are
restored to the same client from where they were backed up.
NetBackup also lets you restore files from other client
The following methods can
be used to redirect a restore to a different client:
NetBackup can be
configured to allow a client to restore files from other client
backups. The client computer where you perform the restore is where
the files are restored.
For example, you are
logged on to Client A. You want to restore files to Client A that
were backed up from Client B.
By default, Backup,
Archive, and Restore allows the system administrator to direct
restores from the master server to any client. Also by default,
NetBackup clients are configured to accept server-directed restores
of other client backups.
A server-directed restore
cannot be done with a database extension product such as NetBackup
