backup exec - trying to restore data onto a different server unsuccessful
Posted on 2011-09-02
We are testing out a disaster recovery setup and are having issues restoring the data from the production server to the disaster recovery (DR) server. Our production server running as a domain server backs up each night to USB hard drives. I have another server (our DR server) that is set up but only as a workgroup server and is not connected to any network.
This is the process that we have so far;
taking the external USB hard drive and connecting it to the DR server
created a backup to disk folder and pointed it to X:\Veritas\B2D folder.
Right click on the new folder definition and click on Inventory
Once the media shows up on the right side, I select all the media and right click and select Catalog media
At this point everything appears to work except that when I go in to the restore, I can only see small parts of the data that was actually backed up. This is where I have stopped and can’t figure out how to proceed. I’ve checked my backups on the production server and they are complete and to confirm this, I have restored data into a temp folder.
What am I doing wrong here?
