Restore backup from tape from removed host

Veeam Logoby edwindb76 » Fri Apr 07, 2017 12:48 pm

Hello,
I try to restore a backup from tape from a backupserver which doesnt exist anymore. Restore operations failed with error: Restore from host {servername] is skipped because host could not be found. Could be because backup was performed by a different backup server. Try adding the host manually. Is it possible in some way to access and restore the files from the backup tapes?
Thanks!

Hi,

Did you perform "Catalog Tape" procedure against the tapes on your new VBR?

Thanks

Hi Edwin,

Can you please clarify what type of restore you are trying to perform? If that’s a file from tape restore, please check if you see this error while performing a recovery to ‘this server xxx’ instead of ‘original location’ at destination step of restore wizard.

Hi Dmitry,
I probably clicking too fast through the restore wizard. Selecting 'to this server' instead of 'original location' does do the trick. Thank you very much!
