Importing Backups from Another Inaccessible Server

Post by Nick-SAC » Apr 09, 2018 5:07 pm

The VB&R User Guide for MS Hyper-V states:
The server from which you plan to import backups must be added to the backup infrastructure. Otherwise you will not be able to access backup files.

So, how does one address a situation where the original Backup Server has died (and for whatever reason can’t be Restored) and it hasn’t already been added to another Backup Server’s infrastructure?


Example:

ClientBackupServer
ClientBackupStorageRepository (Ext-HDDs, NAS, etc.)

Let’s say ClientBackupServer dies a horrible death and can’t be restored...

How would one Import (if that’s even the actual procedure) the backups...

From: ClientBackupStorageRepository (Ext-HDDs, NAS, etc.)
Into : New-ClientBackupServer


Thanks,
Nick

Ummm... I think I just figured it out (duh) :oops:

Create/Build/Install New-ClientBackupServer (adding self to VB&R Infrastructure)
Attach/Connect ClientBackupStorageRepository (Ext-HDDs, NAS, etc.)
Import... and have a nice day! :D

Please correct me if I’m wrong...

Thanks,
Nick

In this case attach a backup storage to any working backup server you have, rescan it and import backup data from it. Thanks.
