Netbackup Restore by alternate client(Error: client is not validated to perform the requested operation)

Hello all,

If you have the following error “client is not validated to perform the requested operation” during restore, then you need to grant permission for the alternate client to access images other than it’s own.

Steps are the following:

1. Create a folder <Netbackup install path>\NetBackup\db\altnames.

2. If you want any client were able to restore any other clients backups, then create file named  “No.Restrictions”.(Note file name must not have any other extensions like .txt)

3. To grant one specified client a permission to browse and restore backups made by another client, create a file with the same name as the requesting client(with no extension like .txt) and write the name of the source client into the file.

Example: r2n1t should access r2n1 files:

Create folder C:\Program Files\Veritas\NetBackup\db\altnames
create file r2n1t and write r2n1 in it

That’s all.
