cross client mixed restores


Hello Community,

I am trying to achieve the following :

Database BWA backed up on serverA.

Trying to restore to BWZ on serverZ.

The problem appears to be the fact that the DATA is backed up using backint, but the LOG backups are backed up to disk. The log backups have been copied to the destination server (serverZ), but I cannot get the restore working.

When I try to run the restore, I get failures in two different scenarios :

1) If I choose the "Backint System Copy" option and enter "BWA", I get the error messages below from backint.log :

2017-06-14 13:24:45.000 backint terminated:

pid: 52946

exit code: 0


#ERROR: need to specify (-p)

#ERROR: incorrect parameter options


exception 1: no.110515 (Backup/Destination/Backint/impl/BackupDestBackint_Executor.cpp:238)

Backint missing software version tag

2) If I do NOT choose the "Backint System Copy" option, it reads the input from the catalog and presents me with a list of available backups, but when I run a validate, I get the following error from backint.log (It makes sense as BWA is not installed on the destination server) :

Please can you let me know if it is possible to perform a restore like this ?
