backup exec v9.1 - can't restore data from usb external drive
Posted on 2011-03-24
Hi there, I have a server that we've replaced the hard drives in the unit (Dell PowerEdge 400SC) and have reinstalled the OS and backup exec v9.1. I am trying to restore the utility partition with the registry and domain info, then drive C: and finally exchange.
We use external USB drives as our backup source. Our backups are password protected.
I've inventoried the backup and cataloged the data - no problem there.
I select the utility partition and drive C: and the backup immediately fails with the following error "unable to acquire device for the specified pool and media"
we were using a logon account of 'backupexec"
since the server is still not set up with domain info, I created a user called 'BackupExec' but that still doesn't work either.
