What I've done is to bring the recovery server up so that it alone thinks it
is the master, but let the rest of the environment know it by it's real
name.  For example:

Production NetBackup Master:    xxx
Disaster Recovery Master:       yyy

DNS continues to see the Recovery server as yyy, but the target Disaster
Recovery machine thinks that it is xxx.

It's easy to change the system's identity (as long as you can stand a
reboot).  Change the /etc/hosts, /etc/nodename, and /etc/hostname.<network
interface> files to reference xxx and then reboot your system.  On the
NetBackup clients that you want to restore to, make sure you set their
server name to yyy.

There may be better ways to do it but this has worked fine for us.
