After completing a successful backup of a SQL database with a date range in the name, such as "1/16/2007 to 1/18/2008", this database does not appear under the restore selection list for the server and backup set.
This issue has been observed in environments using the mail archive product "GFI MailArchiver 2011". It is not possible to change the database names without impacting archives.
The Backup Exec catalog engine encounters an issue handling the date strings with as /, such as 8/9/2008
If possible, re-name the SQL database so it no longer includes date strings, such as 8/9/2008.
Install BE 2010 R2 on a test server, inventory and catalog the tapes and perform the restoration. This issue appears to have been introduced in BE 2010 R3.
