Restore SQL server files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I had a SCOM server that crashed.

    I have a backup of  the SQL server Data on a DPM server 2012 r2.

    I have recovered the data to a network share.
    I have reinstalled the SCOM server.

    I am trying to restore the data to the new SCOM  server.

    If I Try to restore Database I am unable to restore.

    If I try to restore files and file groups ,From device  and I select the MDF file I gent an error The media family is incorrectly formed. Error 3241.

    I cannot restore directly from the DPM Sever.
