I remember when that changed...killed a lot of my scripts.

I think there is a work around, but I can't remember to save my life...


I'll look through a few of my scripts :-)

I'm hoping to give this a try (running client as logged-in user).  The
Windows guys aren't too eager to work with me on this restore, I guess.
I'll update when I get a chance.

Hi,
My experience is that you are right. I want to add that you have to map
the drive permanently. If the drive map does not work try the
\\servername\dharename. This is the recommended way (by veritas)

This may be a permission problem. My fuzzy memory says that we have done
this in the past. 
By default the netbackup services run under the local SYSTEM account
which
has by default root access to the local file systems. But no special
privs
for remote file systems. You might try to change the netbackup client
service to run under an userid that has rights over the share. Or
restore to
a local file system and copy the restored data to S:

We want to do an alternate path & alternate client restore for an NT
data set.

The data was originally on Server1 on the D: drive.  I want to restore
it to Server2 on the S: drive.  S is a mapped drive, a CIFS share from a
Netapp filer.

The restore process can't find the S: drive.

I tried to restore D:\ to S:\ and that didn't work.

I tried to restore D:\ to \\filername\sharename and that didn't work
either.

Is there a trick to this?
