Restore a .vbk file?

Post by davek0974 » Nov 12, 2015 7:20 am

Hi

I need to restore a .vbk file with a new name and location etc, i follow through the options on the restore form but the job fails with a file not found on V:\backups\clones......vbk

We are still running V6.1 but will update soon to 8 but i need to get this VM running in the mean time and this is not giving me any confidence in the restore function at all.

Can anyone help please???

Many thanks

Dave

Hi Dave and welcome to the forums!

What kind of restore do you perform? What is the error message?

By the way, have you contacted Veeam technical support? If no, please do, if yes, please include the support case number.
Thanks!

Hi

i am trying to do a full restore but to new location, new name, new datastore etc.

This is the error log

Code: Select all

                             Failed to restore file from local backup. VFS link: [summary.xml]. Target file: [MemFs://Tar2Text]. CHMOD mask: [0].

This is a backup of a new install image.
The vbk file does exist and is on the backup machine and in the backup catalogue
We are still on v6.1 but are working on getting a new server to allow us to move up to v8, i tried to open a ticket but they no longer support 6.1

Try to rescan the repository. If that doesn't help, try the extract.exe utility.

If extract utility doesn't help, request v7 bits from support team. Update your installation and let engineers investigate it directly. Thanks.
