  • Hi,

    As a workaround,  you can restore the VHD by going to Management>Tape Library>Right Click on the Tape>select backup set for the data source containing the VHD and then click on the COPY button.  That will restore to a network location and you can then copy it to the hyper-v server and replace the VHD manually.

  • Hi,

    Is this a tape based recovery point you are attempting to recover the VM from ?  Do other recovery points restore OK for the same VM ?

  • Hi,

    Yes, it is tape based recovery point and i can recover files and folders without any problem.

    I didnt try other recovery points of the VM.

  • Thanks for the answer but it's not really an ideal fix is it. Restoring a few GB of files means having to restore a few TB of file server.

    I must admit I hate how flimsy and unstable DPM is. If you so much as login wrong it crashes. Edit a protection group it crashes. Try to restore? Get an error with no description and an option to copy text... well thanks for helping me to copy all that text too - ID: 1001

    Perfect

  • Hi,

    There have been a lot of fixes since DPM 2012 Sp1 and DPM 2019 + UR1 is very stable and has additional fixes relate to tape restore.  I believe there is one outstanding tape restore issue still that will be addressed in DPM 2019 UR2.
