BW 9.1 IDR network restore on Server 2003, network cannot be configured
when performing a test of an IDR scenario, I had to abort because the server could not connect to the media mediaserver.
The hardware setup is the following:
(1) Media server: Dell PE 4600 with Dell PV 132 LPT2-Library, BE 9.1 installed, IDR and remote IDR options installed. OS: Server 2003, Std Ed.
(2) Remote server Dell PE 2800, backed up nightly via BE remote agent. OS: Server 2003, Std. Ed.
I created bootable IDR-CDs for both of the servers without a problem.
When starting the restore process, I reconfigured the RAID-Array and added the necessary drivers during the installation process.
When trying to perform a remote restore I am asked for the network data of the media server. After entering the data and clicking continue I get the message that the remote media server cannot be found. Entering the media server's IP-address has no effect.
Opening a command window shows that no network configuration has been performed for the machine which is to be restored.
When I try to accomplish the network setup using netsh (as descirbe in KB article 267835), I get the error message, that the LIbrary "DGNET.DLL" could not be loaded. This Lib is available on the system in the C:\windows\system32-directory.
This happens, no matter if I chose an automatic, paritally automatic or manual restore of the data.
How can I make the necessary network setup to connect to the media server?
Thanks in advance -- Stephan
