BE 2012 SDR: no restore selections visible
In short: the SDR wizards connects to the (only existing) BE server, the list of clients is also available as drop-down, but the list of available backups sets is empty for every machine. No error message.
Environment: W2K3 server, both BE and client. BE version is basic (w/o SP1a); customized SDR (here: 32-Bit: SDR-DVD-1689.2-i386.iso) created OK; SDR-recognized restore selections for a number of clients visible and available in BE GUI. Additional info: the (one-and-only!) BE server is defined as a Central Admin Server.
Now my questions: has anybody had that effect already?
Is the reason that the version is not correct (but: I didn't find any reference in the SP1a readme or SCL)?
The customer is not very willing to update to SP1a...
Any help is appreciated.
