More Netbackup testing Results restoring from a mkrescue ISO file created from rear-snapshot-0.0.824-6.1:

Successfully restored Redhat 4.4 64bit server.   The server used 2 Ethernet adapters bonded.  My lab machine use DHCP for the IP.    Under that configuration booting from the ISO file resulted in the Networking NOT being able to be configured.   When I configured the Lab machine to have a manual IP address with the bonding like our production servers the ISO file booted up with no issues.  

I WAS NOT able to boot the Centos 6.2 64bit  ISO file.   At the start of the ISO boot was receiving errors shared libraries could not load.   Libraries libaudit and libblkid would not load.

This could be more of a Netbackup 6.5.6 client issue.  To install the client on the 64bit 6.2 server I had to load 32 bit versions of  compat-libstdc++ and libacl.  I did not need to do that for RedHat/CentOS 4 or 5.   I will research to see if NetBackup 6.5.6 is supported to run on RedHat 6..

I do not have and RedHat 6 in our current prod environment so I am comfortable with the new release on ReaR.

Take care.

This is the testing creating and using the mkrescue ISO file on  rear-snapshot-0.0.824-6.1: 
Test 1) Creating mkrescue ISO:  The snapshot build successfully created the ISO file in our environment. That would be 64 bit Redhat 4.4  5.7  and Centos 6.2 

Test 2)  Test Restores:  Red Hat 5.7 64bit: I successfully did a NetBackup Normal restore, clone restore and point-in-time restore
                  Centos 6.2 64 bit getting failures on restore.  I will reload the NetBackup 6.5.4 client tomorrow and try and backup/restore again
                   Red Hat 4.4  Will try a backup/restore tomorrow,
