Restoring backup exec 12.5 tapes on 2012
Hi everyone, I hope someone will be able to help. I have been trawling google and these forums for a solution but to no avail.
Quite a simple issue really. We have BE12.5 and are looking to upgrade to 2012. I am testing it on our test servers prior to going live.
I have installed 2012 with no issue, but I am not able to restore files created under 12.5. I can catalogue the tapes with no issues, I can see the files there and I can choose one and click start etc. the tape begins to whine as you would expect. The job starts running but never completes. I am trying to restore one small excel file as a test. They byte total never increases. There are no errors and there is no hidden box off screen or anything like that.
I have used the same drive to backup some local files and they have restored fine using BE2012.
I have also tried setting the "use fast file restore" reg entry to 0. To see if that would help but no go.
There is an encryption key but that is definitely correct.
If anyone has any suggestions, that would be great.
