  • Win2k3 ntbackup, catalogue, media details

    Hi Guys

    I'm looking at using ntbackup to backup some specific data that I don't want to use a third party tool to backup. What I'm after is working out whether its possible to copy the catalogues of the tapes and the removable media data from one system to another.

    eg I have one server where I've backup up say 10 tapes worth. What I'd like to do is copy the tape and catalogue details to another server so I can quickly restore data without having to re catalogue the tapes.

    I've found a file located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows NT\NTBackup\catalogs51

    called 352B55C4.V01. I tried copying that to another server and then opening ntbackup with no success.

    I'd appreciate any suggestions.
