Just a little help if you don't mind please, as my SDR has decided not to work anymore for some unknown reason I tried today to do a disaster recovery test on a spare poweredge we have.
Everything started ok I installed toe same OS as the original 2008 R2 to the same drive (C), it was the same size (300GB) and was also NTFS the same as the original. Then I performed all windows updates as the guide says and went on to install BE2012 into a location other than that of the original, so it was installed in C:\Program Files\Symantec\BERestore also SQL was installed into C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\BERestore.
I rebooted the server and launched BE2012, configured the storage device (in this case that was an RDX drive the same as the original), then from the storage tab performed an inventory and cataloged the disk.
The next step was to start the restore so I clicked on Restore >> Files, Folders or Volumes >> File & Folder Backups
Then I select the C-Drive and it lists the contents of what is contained on the RDX disk and click next,
select install to original location, next
restore over existing files, next
The restore runs for about 10 seconds or less than fails with the following error;
"The job failed with the following error: unable to attach to a resource. make sure that all selected resources exist and are online, and then try again. If the server or resource no longer exists, remove it from the selection list. Edit the selection list properties, click the view selection details tab, and the remove the resource"
This is not a remote restore the RDX backup is a local drive with a full backup on it not an incremental or differential, please help because of the Christmas break coming I would like the assurance that DR can be achieved if anything happened.
