The NetBackup media server may not be able to send keepalives to the NetBackup client if the read of data is taking a long time to complete one buffer of data. When this occurs, the media server may time out after the time specified in the NetBackup Administration Console > Host Properties > Media Servers > Timeouts > Client Read Timeout configuration (300 seconds by default).
Check the value of Client Read Timeout for the media server used for restore.
In the NetBackup Administration Console:
Host properties > Media Servers > Timeouts > Client Read Timeout
On Unix media server look for the value of CLIENT_READ_TIMEOUT in /usr/openv/netbackup/bp.conf file.
Set the CLIENT_READ_TIMEOUT value to a big number such as 3600, 7200 or 10800.
