BMR SRT creation failed


The environment is as follow :

NBU master Appliance 3.1.2

BMR Boot Server Windows 2016 running NBU 8.1.2


Windows 2016 registered as a BMR Boot Server ==> OK

ADK as been is correctly on Windows 2016

When creating a x64 NetWork based Shared Resource Tree it failed when installing NBU 8.1.2 Client in SRT.


no error appear in the windows events logs. I just found this message in <InstallDir>\netbackup\logs\bmrsrt logs

"could not copy winsxs directory"


Any idea ?

Remove all *.wim files from location " ...\Veritas\NetBackup\BareMetal\server\data"

Try and create SRT again ....


Re: BMR SRT creation failed

Hi @ElGringo !


i had the same problem with a german Windows server. The installer of ADK do not allow to install in English. (it switch automatcally)

My Workaround:

Setup an english Windows in a VM - install NBU - setup BMR - create SRT - export SRT and import on destination server.
