Error importing config when migrating to new server

Post by timstumbo »

I setup a new 2012 server today, I'm tying to migrate my config over from a 2008 server. When I go to import the config and select the migrate option it errors out when analyzing the file with "Configuration backup file has unsupported version or corrupted contents". I verified that both versions of the software were the same, 8.0.0.817. I didn't do a SQL backup but instead setup a clean database install with SQL 2012. From what I read you don't need the database backed up as long as you have the configuration.

Thanks for the help.

Right, you do not need to backup the database separately. Please contact technical support directly for assistance with this. Your case ID posted here will be much appreciated.

Also, if there's an ability to perform configuration backup again and then import it, you can try that.

I tried to do another backup and I'm still getting the error importing. I will put in a ticket.

I was also getting this error when moving the Configuration from an old server (Windows Server 2012 Std R2) to a new server (Windows Server 2012 Std R2).
The fix was to move the Configuration backup file from the SMB share on my NAS to a local folder on the new server.

Thanks. This is the 2nd time I had to perform a migration from an interim server to the actual backup server, and once again I got caught by this. Can't restore straight from UNC path oddly enough even if it is your repo. Must copy backup config files locally and restore from there.

This is still an issue. I figured that this would have been fixed in 3-4 years but it is still an issue or at least do not have the option to restore straight from the backup repository. Copy it locally and it works.

Hi Patrick, we've just checked and this works (and should also work before) as expected - if you specify the remote location, the configuration backup file is automatically copied locally and then imported normally. I recommend contacting support for a closer look at the logs. Thanks!

Hi,

We had this problem and we found that in the destination repository the file permission on the file was set to 700 and when it was copied locally on the server Veeam was not able to access the file. If we put the file with 777 permission the file is now valid.

[MERGED] Configuration backup file has insupported version or corrupted contents

Post by sandroalves »

Hi,

our server crashed the operating system disk, but the data remains intact at first.

I don't have information on which version was installed, but I believe it was Veeam 10 for sure.

However, when I choose the option to restore the configuration of the JOBs it presented error.

This version that I'm using for sure is more recent.

Thanks.

Hi Sandro,

moved your post to the existing thread with the discussions on the same error message.
Please provide a support case ID for this issue, as requested when you click New Topic.

Also, please take a look at the soutions above, maybe the permissions or file location trick could help.

Thanks!
