    HI I am using wbadmin to perform backups of a specific folder, primarily to backup my VHD files

    this is working fine but I tried to recover the files today using a different machine to the one which created the backup and couldnt get the machine doing the recovery to ‘see’ the backups.

    Is there a way to do this as my worry is that if I have a failure on the host which is perfmorming the backups I need to be able to install hyper-v on another host and recover the backed up VMs to there until I can rebuild the host.

    It appears that this isnt possible, I am hoping I am missing something.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: Recovering using wbadmin

    I use the following to create the backups to a remote share.

    wbadmin start backup -backupTarget:\destination-serverHyper-VHyperv_backups -include:Z: -VSSfull -quiet

    The backups work but as I said if I try to recover to another machine rather than the one that ran the command then the backups are not seen, only the machine that ran the backup command seems to be able to recover.

    Which is a worry if the host machine goes kaput.

    Incidentally z: is the drive with the VMs on

    How about using the

    Wbadmin restore catalog [/CODE]

    parameter?
