Can someone describe the exact procedure to restore a database backup from
one server to another. This used to be quite straight forward with TDP 1.1.2
but does not work according to the directions with both the GUI and the
command line. With the GUI, setting the 'from server' parameter in the
configurations settings would imply that the GUI will query the TSM server
for the backups from that server, it seems to have no affect whatsoever.
With the command line again setting the FromSQLServer parm does nothing but
return an error that no backups can be found for the server name
'SQL Servername'\meta\0000. Also it would seem to me that you would have to
authenticate to TSM for both nodes, it's no apparent where you would provide
the password for the from server.
