Re: DP 7.01 EADR Recovery method failure (Windows 2008 R2 SP1)

Hi Despina
Apologies for replying to this very old thread. I am facing the same issue at a customer site that is running DP7.0

Did you manage to find a solution by any chance?
Thanks in advance.

Re: DP 7.01 EADR Recovery method failure (Windows 2008 R2 SP1)

Hello @Sebastian.Koehler
Thanks for the response.
The issue I am facing is same as described in the post. I am trying to test the restore the cell manager with Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with DP7.0. The backups seem to work fine. I am using the exact same hardware to test just replacing the current disks. The AD server restore works fine and the only difference I can see is that there are 5 LUNs connected to the cell manager.
The issue is when I boot into the DR OS it gets to the recovery process and gets a red cross next to reconfiguring the system and does not go further then that.
I attached 2 pictures. The 1 describes the issue. The other 1 might help as that is different compared to the other restores. It reboots to initialize disks.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Hello @AbdurL,

I think you know that Data Protector 7.x is old and no longer actively supported. So if you really worry about your environment it should be upgraded to 10.x soon.

The easiest option around might be disconnecting the external LUNs from the Cell Manager while doing the EADR. There should be also an option to do the minimal EADR leaving external disks as they are.
