Help with LTO5 encryption
You need LTO-5 tape drives to read the media.
You need the NBKMS key dir: /usr/openv/kms, have them quiesce the DB on their side or stop services tar that dir, and then place it on your master server and run nbkms (starts the nbkms service), then you need to import those tapes then restore.
You should also be at the same version of netbackup or greater for what you are importing.

Subject: [Veritas-bu] Help with LTO5 encryption
I have been asked to read 7 LTO5 tapes that were backed with NBU 7.5 up using encryption
I was sent the key that was used for encryption.
I have not done any encryption with NetBackup 7.1 which is what we are using.
We have LTO2 drives at the moment so I know I will need to buy the LTO 5 drives
Can someone point me in the right direction to be able to read these tapes?
