Also, since you're effectively changing the storage unit allocation, you *might* have to do a:
Unfortunately, all three of these re-read operations do not work a large percentage of the time in versions below 6.0.

I was planning on adding this option and then run the restore and once the restore was running commenting out that line and force the master to reread its bp.conf file.

For restoring that is all you need.
For backing up you'd need to point your policy to the storage unit associated with the other media server.
Also some operations will be slow due to timeouts trying to connect to the media server that is down even though you're not really directing traffic there.
We do the FORCE_MEDIA_RESTORE option all the time to restore our PROD BCV backups to alternate servers for database refreshes. It works fine.

I have a media server that is down at the moment for maint and I have to run a restore. Both media servers connected to the same master. All I need to do is add the force restore statement to the master bp.conf file and then have the master rereads its bp.conf right?
add FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER option in master bp.conf.
FORCE_RESTORE_MEDIA_SERVER = <original media/master> <target media/master>. You then have to run bpadm g (global) m (modify) d (notify request daemon) to reread the bp.conf - this is done on the master server.
