Metadata Restore Failed. The uuid you supplied was invalid
Posted on 2010-08-30
Hi folks, new to XenServer and haven't played with 'nix so this is all a bit strange. On XenServer 5.5.0 used the Backup, Restore and Update wizard to create a backup on an NFS based SR. Blew away the XenServer with a fresh install and reconnected the SR but an attempt at restoring "ALL VM data" results in the error "Metadata Restore Failed. The uuid you supplied was invalid". However the dry run option seems to succeed. Best guess is that the built in wizard is a bit dumb and I'll need to come to terms with the command line version of the restore action, after having first looked up all the required uuids - based on the command line options for the restore action. Can anyone confirm if this is the case?
Thanks in advance, Doug.
