Backup Exec

I have a failed server.  Motherboard or Processor issue.  

This is a 2003 server running a veritas version of backup exec.  it was originally installed with v9.1 of Veritas, it may have been upgraded from there, but Im not sure.

The  backup is running to a hard drive and I have the BKF files.

How can I get the data back?  I have Seagate Backup Exec  v10 disks?

Thank you.

Do you have the Server up and running and just need to restore the data?

Was the Server a DC?

Did you install Backup Exec v10 on the Server yet?

Backup Exec has not problem restoring prior versions of the backup files.

Tony GiangrecoCommented:
On the newer server, you can either perform a bare metal restore or a regular data file restore.

It sounds like your not prepared for a bare metal restore so try the regular restore. Get windows server running (the same version preferably to have less problems), install Backup Exec 10, make sure you can browse the hd with the bkf files on it (in windows explorer), go to the restore menu and select restore and guide it to find the bkf files when it prompts you for it.

Here is a tech note from Symantec with links to solutions for different types of recoveries on that version.

I haven't used version 10 in about 10 years. It's been a long tile... Hope this helps!
