BackupExec 2012 Restore a VM on ESXi 5.1 - NOT SDR does not work
I need to perfrom an Restore test for ISO 72001, normally i would do a SDR restore to a VM and test that ll was ok... BUT
Due to the incompatabilty of 2012 and exsi 5.1 not being to work properly, i have tried the old method of creating a blank windows 2008 r2 server, with traditional c: d: drives etc
I have then performed a full restore to this vm (the backup was of a VM with IIS and sql server)
of the system state, C: drive and D:drive (from disk based backup savesets) - [ 3 seperate restore jobs]
These all completed fine, and the new vm rebooted
When the machine cmae back up, i could login fine, but the machines name was the same TEMP as before i perfromed the restore, i was expecting the same name/ip address etc as the backup would have had , also even though sql is there, i could not see IIS installed at all, and sql studio would not start etc..
So what has happened here, is it the same incompatabilty issue with 2012 and ESXi 5.1 ???
If so i have NO WAY of restoring a failed VM...
Am i missing something in the restore process or does it just not work...
