I was under the impression you had to use the SAME hostname if you want to restore the catalog and avoid re-import "without using Symantec Professional Services". I don't see that DR plan vs. any other would work for this but didn't review the link you sent. When I asked about new hostname last year nearly everyone responded that it couldn't be done (without PS being involved).

Situation: Need to move a robot and its tapes to a different building, under a new master + media servers using different hostnames than the original. Problem: Do not want to have to re-import all of the tapes manually to the new master+media server environment. Possible solution: Disaster recovery using partial catalog recovery in NetBackup http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH28722 Questions: Has anyone verified this document to work with NBU 7.1 in terms of moving a robot as I have suggested above? I have opened a case with Symantec and they stated it should work but was looking for some re-assurance ahead of time/before testing and going further down this route.
