Opening a VeeamZIP *.vbk file locally (error) ...

Post by Didi7 » Aug 02, 2017 11:30 am

Hello,

this time I want to discuss a strange phenomena I already had several times. If I open VBR 9.5 and select 'FILES' on the left pane, I can browse to local files on our VBR Server and select a *.vbk backup made with VeeamZIP.

Then I get the following error ...

'Cannot open file from the remote host. Copy it locally or to a shared Folder first.'

Well, I browsed our VBR Server locally by selecting the VBR Server itself and opening drive D: and the subdirectories, where the *.vbk file is located. I selected the *.vbk file, right clicked on it and selected Open.

Double clicking the *.vbk file from outside VBR works and open the *.vbk VeeamZIP backup without a Problem.

Is that a known bug?

Regards,
Didi7

Hi Didi7,

Unfortunately, we know nothing about this behavior (except it does not look like expected). If possible, please submit a case to our support team and share the case Id in this thread. Thanks in advance.

Hello,

the same behavior also happens with Veeam B&R Free Edition v9.5 U3. Opening a *.vbk file within VBR 9.5 Free Edition results in an error message ...

'Cannot open file from the remote host. Copy it locally or to a shared folder first.'

Remember, the file is already local! Try it yourself guys!

Opening the *.vbk file from Windows Explorer successfully open the *.vbk and presents the restore options.

Best regards,
Didi7

Have you opened a case for this? Basically, the assumption is that it still tries to download the file to the temp folder, despite the fact it is already stored on this PC. Is there enough space on the disk where Veeam temp files are stored? Anyway, we will investigate, since in this particular case download is not required, the file is already stored locally.
