Thanks Donovan, but I think the problem may not have anything to do with
resolving clients. I just realized that I was trying to recover to /tmp on my
NSR server from a NetAQpp. That does not work. Now I have to figure out how to
 recover the directory from my old Netapp filer client but send it to the
same filer with a new hostname or send it to the NearStore. The tape drives
are connected to the NearStore and I only have one license for NDMP.

Anyone played with nsrndmp_recover in detail.

I have been able to recover to a different NDMP client by fooling the
backup server (changing the local hosts file) and then performing a new
jbconfig.  Example:

Original:  jbconfig has two NDMP drives:

celerra2:c0t1l0
celerra3:c0t2l0

You need to recover old NDMP client called celerra1.  So, add celerra1
to /etc/hosts and give it the same IP as say celerra2.  Delete the jukebox
and perform a new jbconfig.   This time use celerra1:c0t1l0 as the NDMP
device.  Strange, but I guess when Networker contacts the server (this case
it is celerra2 on port 10000) it does not verify the hostname!! This works
beautifully for me every time.  A little annoying to keep doing jbconfigs
but it works.

Now this is using an EMC Celerra, you might get different behavior with
Netapps.  Hope this helps,

Donovan
