Restore

Advanced Verification Questions

Hi Everyone,

I recently setup ImageManager for weekly advanced verification. All devices seemed to come up just fine except for one. Screenshot:

 

ImageManager Headstart Restore question

Have a weird situation and wondering the best way to do this. I have a server that we need to reboot due to some hardware issues and we do not believe it will come back up. I have headstart restore set up, but am unsure if it will work for what we need as far a quick restore. The resason I say this is because when I did a test restore I found that due to a problem with the server no updates will install even though they try when the server is booted from a vhd created from the chain. When it boots the updates fail and it takes 15 hours to revert the updates.

SPX V6.5.2 restore volume more information

2

During a volume restore using SPX V6.5.2 there is virtually no feed back except for percentage complete.  I would VERY much like to see restore speed (in MB/second) so that I can get a feel for how well the server and network are functioning during the restoration.  This was shown in SP V5.2.x and was helpful in diagnosing machine/raid controller/network interface issues when installing replacement servers and doing volume restores.

Path Separator Characters in HSR

What's the purpose of not letting us use path separator characters on a network drive location, but letting us use them for a local drive location?

Got hit with Cryptolocker on Server. Running Restore. Received Error.

I am currently getting an error with ShadowProtect, running restore from CD with the backup files located on smb:, need assistance.

The Error is:

505 smb://\\?\H:\client_backup\C_VOL-b001-i6420-cd-cm.spi: Decompress Failed.

500 Unexpected end of the image file.

504 Final error (-13 The data is invalid.)

516 sbrun.exe started successfully but failed to complete the task. 

We copied the files to an external, but did not work as well. 

HSR - Finalise lag time

1

When finalising an HSR job, currently it will not write the last X hours (Whatever your lag time is set to).

If you are trying to do a live migration from one server to another using HSR on a critical system such as SQL or Exchange, you lose the last 1 hour (minimum) of data! That makes HSR an unviable option for migrating servers.

 

 

CentOS 6.6 Restore to XenServer 6.5 VM

We are currently testing ShadowProtect SPX for our hosting environment. I have installed SPX on a CentOS 6.6 64 bit server and been able to back up. All good so far.

Now for restoring.

Forums:

Add Restore options to ShadowControl

It would be great if we could have a recovery section within ShnadowControl to

  1. Restore files and folders
  2. Restore VM's using HSR
  3. Granular Recovery for Exchange

Increase 2tb limit for HSR to VMDK

HSR to VMware there is a 2tb volume limit, can we please get this resolved.

HSR is undoubetibly the easiest way to restore a VM, using Hyper-V for VHDX support isnt an acceptable option in an all VMware enviorment.

Restore Disk Layout from Image does not do anything to the disk

I have backups of (1) system reserved & (2) data of the boot disk.

I used "restore disk layout from image" and selected the system reserved image. It found the disk layout and presented it correctly (888 MB for sys reserved, 240 GB for remainder".

I ran the command and it showed it completed correctly (with green ticks etc).

BUT: it did absolutely nothing to the disk. Disk Map shows no change, and a reboot didn't show a change.
