Afternoon, team. Do we have a write-up on this please? We're setup and doing a VM backup w/ VEB (piped into B&R console, great, do wish I could retry, etc. from the console and get stats as well though
), now we're trying to do test restore.
I build a new blank VM, point the CD-ROM to my recovery ISO, works fine, boots to it, asks me where my backup files are. I tried network, but it wants network drivers - did select that during the recovery media phase - but it can't seem to find the drivers and wants me to tell it where they are. I don't know, it's a VMXNET3 card. I thought it would know where they are since they were included on the recovery media. So, while I can boot to the recovery media, I can't get to my backup files.
I tried adding a second CD-ROM to the VM and pointing it to the .vbk file but of course VMware only wants .ISO's for its CD-ROM's. Thanks, VMware! I just want to point to another file. I can point to generic files on a Datastore, but do I have to copy 50+GB backup files to my Datastores in order to mount them?
