We have moved our whole B2D directory to a new system and attempting to restore the information contained in the B2D files.
We have successfully inventoried the B2D directory but when attempting to catalog the B2D media, it stays stuck at Loading Media.
We've tried the following:
1) set backup exec so it doesn't use the on-media catalogs
2) set backup exec so it doesn't use fast backup and restore (from the backup exec utility)
3) updating Backup Exec to the latest version, latest patches, etc.
4) re-writing the NTFS permissions to the B2D files
We are at wits end and do not know how to resolve this issue or what to do next.
As at current, we are re-copying the B2D data over from the original source. The server which initially performed the backups is dead otherwise we wouldn't be in this position.
A side note which is likely relevant, we get the following error in the Windows NT Application Log when attempting to catalog the B2D media:
Event Source:Backup Exec
An error occurred while processing a B2D command.
Drive: ReadFMTable() ReadFile failed (C:\BACKUP\B2D000005.bkf). Error=87

The EventLookup URL is utterly useless as it points to the media going offline. This is NOT the case in our situation.
