1 drive in each of 2 arrays died at one time. Reinstalled Server 2008 and tried recovery from tape... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Unfortunately, the tapes had data errors like crazy. Was able to fool it into allowing me to restore most of the data, however either the way the backup was configured, or the data issues caused an incomplete restore. Now I have an almost unusable server, as far as SQL dependent programs go. I can neither uninstall nor reinstall any of the affected programs because the master database it is looking for is not in the folder. I just really need to restore the SQL db's somehow. 

    i was hoping to install a virtual server on my laptop- temporarily to recover the data. However it looks like virtual server isn't supposed to install on Win7 and VPC doesn't do servers?? Maybe I'll try just using win7 named properly?? Anyone with help or suggestions to get me back up will be so appreciated. Thanks in advance.
