[Veritas-bu] NDMP Backup/Restore using NetBackup Media Server for NetWare

Are you trying to restore to the same server you backed up? Or to a
separate machine?
I would guess you did the set_ndmp_attr in order to backup the
machine....if you're restoring to a different machine, I'm thinking you
may not have set the password on the alternate host.


Are you doing the restore from the client or from the server? If from
the client, maybe you don't have client initated restores permitted.
