Regarding moving master server OS:
1. Install the new server OS and NetBackup
2. Stop NetBackup on old environment
3. Cold Catalog Backup
4. Rename old master and new master - so new master has old name
5. Start NetBackup on new master
6. Catalog Restore from Cold Catalog Backup
Absolutely NOT. This cross-platform (Windows to Unix) migration WILL NOT WORK. You will have end-of-line termination issues and NetBackup is unlikely to even start up.
