Backup EXEC : How to restore from B2D (unknown version, non existent server) to fresh install of BE2012
Hi Guys (and Girls, if there are any)
So here is the situation:
A new of mine client has had their server stolen, with this the only backup their previous IT people made, is a USB drive with a bunch of B2D files on it, which was (yes you guessed it) copied to the USB through non BE Job Duplication methods.
In short, I have 162 BKF files, no changer.cfg and no folder.cfg.
I have managed to install BE2012 on a box (SBS 2008) and after some time spent reading, I can successfully import a Legacy B2D folder and the BKF files Inventory and Catalogue to the point that under "Storage" I can see the three different backup sets and browse the contents of the backup sets, etc.
However, under "Servers" there is no entry made for the original server name and the only option available to me under "Backup & Restore" is to select a Server, and try to restore that, which I can't, because it does not exist.
I'm assuming I might have done it wrong, or missed a step, can someone please help me with either a proper Step-By-Step covering this scenario,or some general advice ?
As I said, under "Storage" I can see the the B2D folder, I can browse the backup sets, all I need to do is to restore that data to either my local disk or a USB disk so that I can then use that data with the new server they will (obviously) have to get.
Can someone please help ?
