Errors when Bare Metal Restore information is replicated using Auto Image Replication
Successful Auto Image Replication (AIR) of Bare Metal Restore (BMR) information requires two things. First, the master server in the target domain must have BMR enabled. Second, the master server in the target domain must be at the same or higher version of NetBackup than any clients that send BMR information. For example, if the master server in the target domain is NetBackup 8.2 and the client in the originating domain is 7.7.3, AIR works correctly.
If the client in the originating domain is NetBackup 8.2 and the master in the target domain is 7.7.3, the BMR information fails to replicate. All other information is successfully sent, only the BMR information is not replicated. You can restore the contents of the client, but you cannot use BMR.
