Cant start a BMR - Prepare to Restore fails

Hi

I'm trying to setup a prepare to restore for BMR but come across some issues

The client wants a BMR done from the 1st of July. I create a new configuration for a point in time restore called July1st.

I then right click and select Prepare to Restore

Configuration -> July1st

SRT -> W64_7506  (Which I created earlier from my BMR Server which is Win2008R2, same as the client to be restored)

Ticked Enable Logging and Use Quick formatting

I click OK

and get the following errors

[Error] V-126-87 Failed to allocate SRT W64_7506 on the boot server [servername]. Please see the boot server logs for more details

[Error] V-126-3 'bmrprep; could not complete the requested operation. Please see logs for additional information

[info] V-126-43 Cleaning up.. Please wait (Status 1)

on the BMR Boot server the logs in the BMRD folder state

0,51216,128,119,1,1380078903281,9728,7632,0:,29:Replaced object in m_vConfig.,31:CBmr::readXml(xml, len, filter),1

0,51216,128,119,3,1380078903334,9728,7632,0:,111:CreateTftpdBootDirStructure() failed. TFTPD boot directory structure doesnt exist and cannot be created either.,32:methodsPlat.cpp:PxeAllocateSrt(),1
 

I have deleted all SRT's, unregistered the BMR Boot server and re registered it again, recreated new SRT

First run gave this error in the logs

0,51216,128,119,2,1380078126395,6196,9908,0:,69:Error occured while attempting to mount image. gle=32, try count = 1.,32:CWinPeSrtFacility::mountSrtWim(),1

then each time after the same as before

0,51216,128,119,1,1380078903281,9728,7632,0:,29:Replaced object in m_vConfig.,31:CBmr::readXml(xml, len, filter),1

0,51216,128,119,3,1380078903334,9728,7632,0:,111:CreateTftpdBootDirStructure() failed. TFTPD boot directory structure doesnt exist and cannot be created either.,32:methodsPlat.cpp:PxeAllocateSrt(),1

The errors point to boot.sdi and TFTPD directory but havent been able to locate any issues/fixes on any forums.

Netbackup is 7.5.0.6 on Solaris 10. BMR Boot server is 7.5.0.6 on Win2008r2, Client to be restored is Win2008r2.

Any more info if you require.

Thanks for any assistance.

I should have waited before

I should have waited before posting but I have managed to resolve this issue.

I created a new BMR Boot Server on a different system.

I found this folder

C:\Program Files\VERITAS\NetBackup\BareMetal\server\TFTPD

I then copied this entire folder to the original server having the issue and now its working correctly. Somehow there was missing files in the folder of which one was the boot.sdi file indicated in the logs,

Hope this helps someone else if they have the same issue.

I also tried from the Master

I also tried from the Master Servers command line in case it was a GUI issue

~ : $ sudo bmrprep -restore -client [clientname] -config july1st -srt W64_7506
