Trying to restore BE11d files from tape using BE 2012
Today we upgraded BE software from BE 11d to BE 2012 on a Windows 2003 server by removing BE 11d and adding BE 2012. We put a tape in the back up drive from the night before (completed via BE 11d) and attempted to restore two files on that tape using BE 2012 to the same server. We had to catalog the tape first. Once that was completed we could see ALL of the files backed up the night before on the C drive. Yea! So we created a simple Restore job for two of the files (a *.dbf file and a *.cdx file).
We stepped through the Restore wizard and chose to overwrite the original files. BE 2012 ran the job and declared it "successful" however, no files were restored. We tried it by retsoring the files to a new folder on the same C drive. Same result: "succesful" but no files were atually restored.
We were able to back up a file using BE 2012 and then restore it using BE 2012 so what are we missing when trying to restore BE 11d backedup files?
