can i restore the backup from HP Data Protector to diff server ?I have not worked on data protector, but, I have worked on veritas net backup and I believe that data protector must also have capability to do what you are asking here. You need to connect your restoration server to the data protector and then you should read data protector documentation about how to restore backup on a different server.
do i need to install agent to test server ?Are you talking about some agent of data protector which communicates with the server during backup and restore? If yes, then certainly you need to install that so that it can talk with data protector server.
