I am trying to restore my Vmware from netbackup to another EXSI via Netbackup BAR (Virtual Machine Recovery) and recover the virtual machine to alternate location.
I was not able to restore for this particular VM. I was able to restore the rest of the VM in the same environment except this one (let call this VM100).
I have enable the bpvmutil logging and below is the logs.
(Removed and re-added as attachment by Marianne)
It seems that the failure is related to this "Invalid configuration for device '1'." as i have compared those VM that has no problems.
May i know how do i resolve this issue? I tried find the information on veritas and it points me to this document https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.000068086
Please helps. Am lost in troubleshooting
Solved! Go to Solution.
I think you should put this to a VMware forum, it looks like VMware related issue.
Please in a future insert log contents as attachments here, no as plain text - or at least copy just their important parts. It looks you have isolated the problem, so no need to paste here the whole log stuff.
Hello lowkh 76
Because you sad that this error happens only on one machine, then it should not be related to netbackup only, but I ve found a techhnote from the veritas side that can give you advice.
I do no say that this is the same for you, but something similar can happen. Check if not a specif configuration setting on the vm is making this error, and if a reread or reaply of , exemple a vm template breaks the blocking point.
Do also like you have been told before, report the issue to vmware support.
manage to resolve the problem. It seems that the VM configuration has an ISO mounted on the Virtual CDROM. As such when i do an alternate location restore, the backup image contains the information of that ISO being mounted and the alternate location did not have that ISO image.
I edit the configuration of that VM and redo it backup again. After which i proceed with the alternate restoration and this time it completed successfully.
