BE2012 and restoring/converting to a HyperV Machine
I'm hoping someone can help or give me some advice as to how to create a Hyper V Machine from tape,
We are currently backing up our servers upto tape using BE2012, and restoring data when needed, all OK, we then started testing our DR solution and we are able to restore our servers to physical hardware (using the Symantec Disaster Recovery CD & Tape Drive).
Some of our servers do not need to be restored to physical server and for the DR scenario they could be restored to a HyperV VM, unfortuntely this is where it all goes wrong for me.
I built a server with 2008r2 (and all updates) and then installed BE2012( with Liveupdates), "Inventory'ed & Catalogued" the tape, but the convert button is greyed out, I then got the .DR file from our live server put it on the DR BE server, and the convert button is still greyed out.
Appreciate any help on this, (or is this something that is not possible?)
Thanks for your time
