copy vhd from a tape backup NOT restore
This seems like a pretty straightforward thing to do but I cant get it to work. All I want to do is copy a vhd from a backup tape. I dont want to restore the live vhd file. Just copy a vhd from tape to another location on the drive which I'll copy to a usb.
I click restore, I select the tape in the drive, the vhd I want to restore, I set redirection to the path where I want the file to get copied and I specify source as our tape drive. When I run the job it will tell me the virtual machine is on and the job fails. I dont want to copy over our live vhd. Why is it telling me that i have to shuttoff the virtual machine when all I want to do is copy a vhd from tape to a different location on the drive? Arcserve makes this process very simple.
