MIgrating data from Windows 2003 File Server to Netapp

This issue has been solved. See solution.

We have here a brand new Netapp fas2240 where we need to migrate the old file servers data.

Our backup software is a BE12.5

When I try to restore the data from tape I receive the following message.

Job name            : Restore 00394Job type            : RestoreJob status          : FailedJob log             : C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\Data\BEX_BRSPFPS003_03432.xmlServer name         : BRSPFPS003Selection list name : Restore 00394

For additional information regarding this error refer to link V-79-57344-33967
Any idea?
I install the NDMP agent but it refuses connection with root or any other user.
If I make a backup of Netapp and a restore, everything is OK. This error only occurs within Windows and Netapp

Not possible...check the Limitations section in the TN below for further information.

You might have to restore to your Windows server and then manualy move the data across.

You cannot restore backed up Windows data to an NDMP device or backed up NDMP data to a Windows device the restores have to go back to the same type of device.

What you can do is open a share on the NDMP device and disable NDMP and then do a share level restore, although if the original source server is stil available it might be simpler to just open a share and copy the files using any kind of file system tools.

NetApp provides tools for this!  As well as solid documentation.  Using a restore from a backup is usually not even an option when talking to a NAS/SAN vendor since they have migration tools available to customers.

There is an online portal, save yourself the long hold times. Create ticket online, then call in with ticket # in hand :-) "We backup data to restore, we don't backup data just to back it up."
