Finally, got it to work. Will post a tutorial on what I did to perform it. I have been able to do a restore to a new instance on the same host as the original instance that was backed up using a selective online full. The auxiliary instance I restored to is not known to CommCell Console.
Will post more details in the next few days, and will also attempt the same restore when the instance is already known to CommCell Console.
Not to mention perform on Linux to Linux too. Which would be similar to any other Unix to Unix platform.
