I have it configured in my NetBackup 6.5.3 environment, but as I was writing
here before I prefer the older full system restore vs BMR. I fully tested
BMR restores from physical to VM, VM to VM and physical to physical, works
fine. But, I still like the full system restore better, as it is faster and
easier way of recovery anywhere. If you need more info, you can ask and I
will get back to you.
