Cannot restore tapes made prior to server rename....

Created: 29 May 2013 | 1 comment

Firstly, I must say that I am very disappointed with BackupExec 2012, having upgraded from Backupexec 12d (12.0 SP3).

From what I've seen on various forums and blogs, I'm not alone!

Here's my scenario and subsequent issue (file server names have been changed, but are valid to correctly explain the issue):

There was originally an old file server called FS1, which was also running BE 2012.

It was replaced with a new server called, according to a new naming convention, FileServer1.

All data was backed up to tape and restored (redirected) to the new FileServer1.

The old FS1 is now being used a a Backup Server only, so after a month it was duly renamed to BackupServer1.

Now, another 3 months later, we need to restore something from the old FS1, to the new FileServer1, but the BackupServer1 doesn't give us the option.
