DPM Bare Metal Recovery RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have taken the BMR backup of a VM using DPM 2010. Im trying to restore it to the same VM, but while browsing the BMR backup in WinRE, I am getting an error, "Network location can not be reached, error code 0x800704CF". Both VM and destination path (DPM server itslef) are in domain, so I tried to access the destination path using the IP address and then the share name. While authentication, it gave me the name of the machine it was trying to log-in as "MININT-D6UA8A2" so I changed it to domain\user_name.

    I checked that the NIC card driver is installed properly (vmxnet3 Ethernet Adapter is being displayed in Device Manager and Adapter Settings).

    Please help.

    Regards

    Pavit

    are you sure you are getting a ip address ? try to change the Network adapter to a E1000 just to rule out its not a driver issue

  • I was getting these errors when I was excluding the domain name from the computer name. The only way that I was able to get it to work was "\\dpmserver.domain.com\SharedFolder"

    As long as you have the option to enter the user name and password, you are connecting to the server, which means that you just might be missing rights to the shared folder.

    Check out this very nice walk-through on Bare Metal Restore:

    Also, do you have DHCP enabled in that environment?

  • Hi FlemmingRiis and m3koval

    Thanks for your help. I was able to restore it by changing the network adapter to E1000 and assigning a static dummy IP address to the NIC for it to be able to access the destination.

    Thanks
