Are you sure you unlock (in nbackup terms) the restored database after
restore? If not, perhaps that's why the OIT is frozen?

Note: The Nbackup process is lock - copy - unlock. This means the copy
you make is actually locked, so when you restore it, the result is a
database in locked state. You have to unlock it after the restore to get
back to normal.
