Restore to different server doubles path
I wanted to restored a directory from tape with Backup Exec 2012 SP4 on Windows Server 2008 R2 to a different server with identical directory structure. The end result was that the entire path in front of the restored folder was doubled. Specifically:
- backed up server ERDE.ARTEGIC.LOCAL directory E:\SILO\Staff\svl\#private\BACKUP
- tried to restore to server ZAGDC01.ARTEGIC.LOCAL directory E:\SILO\Staff\svl\#private\BACKUP
- selected \\ZAGDC01.ARTEGIC.LOCAL\E:\ as destination
- job log says:
Restoring data to \\ZAGDC01.ARTEGIC.LOCAL\E:\SILO\Staff\svl\#private Detailed information (Directory \\ZAGDC01.ARTEGIC.LOCAL\E:\) Directory \\ZAGDC01.ARTEGIC.LOCAL\E:\SILO Directory \\ZAGDC01.ARTEGIC.LOCAL\E:\SILO\Staff Directory \\ZAGDC01.ARTEGIC.LOCAL\E:\SILO\Staff\svl Directory \\ZAGDC01.ARTEGIC.LOCAL\E:\SILO\Staff\svl\#private Directory \\ZAGDC01.ARTEGIC.LOCAL\E:\SILO\Staff\svl\#private\BACKUP
followed by the subdirectories within the BACKUP directory, all with their correct original paths. (Note however the parentheses around the first line.)
- however, looking on server ZAGDC01.ARTEGIC.LOCAL after the restore completed, I find the restored data is instead at
Ie. Backup Exec has created four extra directory levels wrt its own log.
Simple question: Why???
