I've been a backup exec user since the seagate days. Over the last decade I've been really impressed with the innovation and features available now in current disaster recovery tools. It actually seems a lot easier now to achieve near 100% up-time. I'm a big fan of appliance based backup solutions with vm fallback and bare metal restore options. I'm guessing it's just a matter of time before tape backup is phased out of mainstream DR processes.

While restore of BMR backup , at the stage of DDR (Dissimilar Disk Restore) i faced an error ""failed to verify backup --rc(25)"

Some helpful material while BMR restore

To determine the root cause on the restoring client:

1. Cancel and exit from the restore wizard.  This should place you in the main menu.
2. Move the mouse to a location in the upper left hand corner of the mains screen, near the gear shape icon. When the mouse pointer changes from an arrow to a hand, right click the...

Environment

NBU Server = 7.0
Client OS image = win2003

I have a full backup with BMR all 3 checks. The backup finishes with status code 0. I trigger Prepare to Restore but facing the below error

Error Message

Resolution

I took BMR backup of win2003 Server without any service pack thats why i was facing the above error. 
So what i did I only upgraded the win2003 Server(NBU Client). I just installed the SP2 of Win2003 Server and DISCII of R2.

This BLOG is for those who are using NBU 6.5.4. Although there are updated patches are available for NBU. I would recommand to update your NBU ASAP if there is no hurdle in doing this.

Environment
