ALT_RESTORE_COPY_NUMBER in NetBackup 6.5.4 worked as advertised with
Solaris servers and both Windows and Unix clients, GUI or
command-line restores.  We noted that the restore Preview display in
the Windows GUI was incorrect (displaying the DSU where the primary
copy resided rather than the tapes where the A_R_C_N copy lived) but
the restore used the correct copy.
