Restore bkf Backup Files on Tape with Windows Server 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have to migrate an application from a legacy server (OS Windows Server 2003) to a new server (OS Windows Server 2008 R2).

    Due to legal obligations we have to keep backups for 10 years. Until now NTBACKUP was used to store the data on tape.

    We must be able to restore data from tapes of the last 10 years for audit purposes.  

    We installed Update für Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Edition (KB974674) containing NTBackup-RestoreUtility on the new server.

    It seems that this tool is not able to restore from tapes.

    How can we fullfil the legal requirements to restore backuped data from tape on Windows Server 8 R2 (and in future with Windows Server 2012 R2)?

    This is an exchange forum, best to ask in the server forum.

    But just FYI, the newer NTBackup is not reading the older versions of backup files, you should look at a 3rd party app for this.
