I'm assisting a colleague of mine with a lab test of Veeam B&R 6.1 (Patch 205) on VMWare ESXi 5.1.
On a workstation PC with VMWare Workstation, we installed VMWare ESXi 5.1 in a virtual machine. On that ESXi, we installed a nested virtual Ubuntu Linux and a Windows Server 2k3 R2 (32 bit). On the latter we installed Veeam B&R 6.1.205.
We configured a shared network drive on a NAS available in the lab's LAN via CIFS as backup repository. We performed a backup of the Linux VM, which worked all okay. Also a regular restore and instant recovery of VM works okay.
The problem occurs when we try a Multi-OS File Level Restore of the Linux VM. After the "vPower" NFS datastore is created on the ESXi and the FLR appliance is mounted, we receive an error box stating that "UpdateNetworkAdapter2Vm" failed, and the process aborts.
The relevant lines from the processing log read as follows:
Code: Select all
[20.09.2012 08:17:57] <06> Info UpdateNetworkAdapter2Vm. VmRef: , Nic: , PortGroup: [VM Network], ConnectAtPowerOn: [True]. [20.09.2012 08:17:57] <06> Info Configuring FLR appliance networking Error: Failed: UpdateNetworkAdapter2Vm, cannot find virtual ethernet card with nic 
Any help or insight is appreciated!
