Restore 800xA on virtual player
I am trying to recover multiple backups on multiple systems, 800xA 5.1,
The real systems consist of virtual servers, then we have a single node
for each system that contains the same version as the real system.
The systems take backup and copies this to a fileserver.
This single node I have made a virtual copy of so I can run it in VMWare
player to try to read back a backup on.
I take the backup from the fileserver and copies the backup to my virtual singel node.
I have tried several ways, deleting systems before restore, rename node
etc, but when restore starts it always gets stuck on missing some files eg
"C:\R3\BR3ITDV01_20200530\backup \ 0_Objects_Admin_Structure" and so on.
These files exist on " C:\R3\BR3ITDV01_20200530\backup\" and are the files from the fileserver.
If a make a backup on the virtual single node then it is no problem to restore that.
Also if you are coming from a virtual environment and moving to another virtual environment (albeit VM Player) why not just directly extract the VM from the ESXi to VM player? I know this requires a shutdown (per node), but is possible.
