Using Backup Exec 2010.
Backup Exec and the SQL server are both on the same server.
After a partial server disaster I had to uninstall SQL Server 2005 without being able to perform a proper SQL Backup.
I do however have a valid backup from not that long ago on BE.
I have installed a fresh copy of SQL Server 2008 R2 (free).
When I try to restore I get either one of two errors:
With redirection (Put in the local host name, default instance name and the blank database name)
Final error: 0xe000848c - Unable to attach to a resource. Make sure that all selected resources exist and are online, and then try again. If the server or resource no longer exists, remove it from the selection list. Edit the selection list properties, click the View Selection Details tab, and then remove the resource.
Final error category: Resource Errors
Straight restore without selecting any redirection:
An error occurred on a query to database IRIS.
V-79-65323-5133 - Directory lookup for the file "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\DATA\IRIS.mdf" failed with the operating system error 5(failed to retrieve text for this error. Reason: 1815).
