IDR Preparation Wizard Fails. asr.sif The system cannot find the file

Created: 02 Dec 2005 • Updated: 22 May 2010 | 3 comments

I run throught the IDR media prep wizard and eventually recieve this error.

"Error getting file info on "\\servername\c$\Program Files\Veritas\Backup Exec\NT\IDR\data\asr.sif" The system cannot find the file specified.

I have checked and the file is there and is a current version i.e. the created date is the same as the date of the backup.

Kind regards

This server is a Brand new IBM x series.

It has 2003 server with the latest service packs.

It has two raid arrays.

I have an identical machine running as it should.

The asr.sif files has been created and can be found at the location refered to in the error given.

I thought this forum was run by symantec! So where are the symantec support experts????

Are you washing your hands of support for your products?????????
