We are running SQL Server 2008 R2 in an Active\Passive Cluster on Windows 2008R2.

We now have the need to recover this Server and it's Databases at our Disaster Recovery site.

We will NOT be setting up the Cluster at the Disaster Recovery site, only a standalone Server which we will recover the Databases to.

We are running Netbackup 7.5 and the 7.5 Client (SQL Server Agent) on our cluster, the SQL Server connection properties page in the Netbackup Client looks like this:

Host: SQLServerInstancename
Instance: Default
SQL Server version: 2008 R2
Security: Mixed
Host type: virtual
Userid: sa
password: sapassword

and this is our backup script:
SQLHOST "SQLServerInstancename"
NBSERVER "BackupServername"
POLICY Onsite_SQL-Cluster_Database

My question is this:

I know I can go to any server and configure the Netbackup client and pull up the Databases available for restore on the clustered instance.

What I am struggling with is pulling up the list using BPLIST so that I can then use BPRESTORE to do a redirected restore.

for BPLIST I have tried the following:

C:\Program Files\Veritas\NetBackup\bin>bplist -C SQLServerInstancename -t 15 -S BackupServername -k Onsite_SQL-Cluster_Database -s 06/07/2015 0:00:00 -e 6/12/2015 00:00:00


C:\Program Files\Veritas\NetBackup\bin>bplist -C SQLServerClusterName -t 15 -S BackupServername -k Onsite_SQL-Cluster_Database -s 06/07/2015 0:00:00 -e 6/12/2015 00:00:00

and each time I got this error: EXIT STATUS 227: no entity was found

Can anyone help? I'm sure I just have a syntax error or maybe a missing parameter?
