I'm trying to complete a SQL restore to a VM that sits in a DMZ but hitting an issue with Admin$ share that I'm trying to resolve.
Basically I'm attempting to restore a DB from one instance on a dev server, to another DB (overwriting) on a 2nd instance on the exact same server.
The user account I'm specifying during the restore (which happens to be the same account we use for Veeam backups) is in local admins, UAC is disabled, it has sysadmin perms on the SQL server instance, but the error I'm getting is:
The network path was not found
--tr:Error code: 0x00000035
--tr:Failed to create persisient connection to ADNIN$ shared folder on host [dest-ip-address]
--tr:Failed to install service [VeeamDeploySvc] was not installed on the host [dest-ip-address].
and this implies a filesystem/firewall permissions issue but my firewall guy can't see anything failing in the logs.
To verify this I can access \\dest-server\Admin$ from the B&R server just fine (so FW rules must be good?)
Any suggestions where to look next?
