Destination client for restores greyed out in Netbackup

Every now and then I land up in the same issue where my destination client for restore option within Netbackup is greyed out and I have to sit and fix  that before I can start my restore which is really annoying!

So here is a simple fix to that...

Go to the registry here --> HKLM -> Software ->Veritas -> Netbackup -> CurrentVersion ->Config

Under this make sure the "Client_Name" and the "Server" keys have the same value which in my case should be the FQDN of the netbackup server. (

In my case the Client key did not show up the full FQDN of my sever so I had to edit that and once done the destination client for restores tab was no longer greyed out!
