Server 2008 backup - no use?
I thought I'd try using Server 2008's built in backup program to backup a simple server to a NAS box. I set up a bare metal backup and its being doing this with no errors for a few weeks.
On this server I swapped the original hard drive for two new drives in a RAID array and thought this would be a good test to restore the backup to the server. Booted up and got a basic 2008 installation and tried to recover from the NAS backup - but every time I try and restore the backup it just tells me there isn't a backup at that location?
I can browse to the folder (\\nas\share), and see the WindowsImageBackup\ServerName folder and theres 50gb of files in there with the most recent backup date - so why can't it recognise its own backup?
I had hoped to avoid buying backup software for this server as its pretty simple and doesn't change much but if the built in backup doesn't recognise its own files then its useless.
