Restoration wizard doesn't present option to restore HyperV image backup to Amazon EC2
While attempting to test restoration of a Hyper-V image backup to Amazon EC2, I noticed the wizard doesn't present the option to place the backup to EC2.
Client installed is Online Backup VM v126.96.36.199. Modules: VM backup on 2 processor sockets; Image Based. Account is configured to write to S3. The desired Hyper-V backup is up in the S3 bucket
Is the absence of restoring a Hyper-V image based backup to EC2 in the Restoration Wizard a result of version and/or current licensing level? Please advise
All comments welcomed
Are you saying that on the Restore Wizard on the Restore Type tab, you do not see an option called "Restore to Amazon Web Services"?
Yes - the option doesn't appear in the Restoration Wizard at the SRestore Type step. However, I'm happy to report that a quick check of the MSPBackups console -> Global Agent Options settings revealed the "Restore to EC2/Azure VM option" was not enable for the managed account I was using. Checking this option and reloading the Online Backup VM client interface locally presented the desired Restore to EC2 option. I was then able to proceed sucessfully with restoring the hyper-v to an EC2 instance.
As usual, for me at least, it was a PEBKAC solution
. Thanks for your help though David
I should have thought of that. Glad you found it. Thanks for the update.
