BackupExec 2012 missing restore to alternate location tab...

Created: 11 Jul 2013 | 1 comment

Hey folks,

I know where it is supposed to be, I have used it before, but for this customer there is no "restore to alternate location/hardware" tab/option when trying to restore.

The backups are on disk, I have a new server with Windows 2003 (just like the original) and the backup agent on it.  I can see it in BackupExec, but when I attempt to restore and want to do so to an alternate location the option/tab is not presented.

Additionally, if I rename the "bare" server to the previous server name/IP, when I submit the restore job I pretty much immediately receive a "The job failed with the following error: User canceled a Physical Volume Library operation." message.

Again, these are disk based backups, and I have confirmed that the backup set is on the disk and available to be restored.

 

Thanks,

smooter

...I'd start by running a repair of BE 2012, and then making sure it is fully patched. Try the restore once done.

Thanks!
