Brandon -

Pretty much yes to all your questions: we've got No.Restrictions defined on the master server. I used bplist to validate access to the list of backups for the source client, and also to determine the latest autobackup from which I pulled the spfile and control file. I'm pretty sure I did a crosscheck but I'll go back and test.
