My infra: Netbackup 7.1, installed in Windows Server 2008 R2.
I get this error message while trying to create a Point In Time configuration for a specific client:
It is a Windows Server 2008 R2 client, and ordinary restores work fine, but this time, i must recover it to previous backup. This error message, is displayed only after setting the name of the configuration and choosing the desired backup (date/time).
I ask now, how can i resolve this problem.
Thank you in advance.
What is your policy type? Are you recovering files from a Windows-NT backup, or a database such as Exchange or SQL Server? What options are you using?
Please use the terms NetBackup uses. I don't know what you mean by "point in time configuration." Do you mean your are choosing an option in the Backup Archive and Restore application (the "BAR GUI")? If so, how you do it differs between a Windows restore and an Exchange restore, for example.
Look at your job details, or the BAR GUI's progress viewer, to find the step that reports the first error. Then look at the appropriate server or client logs.
NetBackup 7.1 was a long time ago.
Hello Michal, and thank you for your reply.
I found a logfile that contains a trace of the error. The logfile is bmrd. The error is:
