Is that possible to restore a notes database (nsf) from an other client (other domino AIX server). (backup is done from a client 'A', I want to restore from server 'B').
I'm sure I could restore from A to B, but is that possible directly from B ? (if A is dead for example).
When I try , I got the message :
Querying and recovering objects.
Full backup not found, cannot recover without full backup /data/notes/data/mail/ddy01/cstern.nsf/
Configuration file is (on the target server):

What you are trying to do should work:
From the NMDA Admin Guide - check page 196.
"A directed recovery allows you to use the NetWorker User for Lotus program to initiate the recovery of Lotus database files that were backed up on a different
There's a list of what you need to setup for this to work there also.
For NML Admin Guide, this is on page 6-14:
Have you configured the Remote Access attribute of the Client resource of the source client?
If you put the error message in a powerlink search, there are a few other reasons given why you would get this error message also which you should check out if your configuration looks ok after reviewing the Administration Guide.
It works well, from one server to restore database of an other server, using NSR_CLIENT and using the good remote access format (user= .... , host=....)
Finally, it works for the nsf database, but Networker is unable to recover and apply the transaction logs.
If I restore locally (the server on itself), it could recover all the transaction logs. But from an other client, it doesn't work.
I've modified the configuration file such as:
(pid = 9240750) (date = 12.01.11 14:06:48) Current locale: fr_FR
(pid = 9240750) (date = 12.01.11 14:06:48) My job ID is: 384567 and parent job ID is 384567

(pid = 9240750) (date = 12.01.11 14:07:05) The transaction log recovery failed with the error message:

If I try from an third server, I got this:
Querying and recovering objects.
PID(3670130) - Received 15 MB 1 file(s) from NSR server.

The transaction log recovery failed with the error message:

Any idea please ?
Looks like this time what you're trying to do will not work:
There are details of this in the Admin Guide (links above), for example page 6-17 of the NetWorker Module for Lotus 3.0 Admin Guide.
Yes, I saw this case, but as it is old, and because of 'LGTpa55381 RFE (request for enhancement). Please contact Legato Customer Support for details (Work-In-Progress).' I thought it was fixed.
No matter, as we can now restore locally with a new DBIID and replica ID, our domino administrators are happy. :-)
