Restoring from a network share

Postby brosato » Tue Nov 06, 2012 5:21 pm

PLEASE, make this work. I've been using sql backup for a lot of years and this is a MAJOR PITA. All I want to do is go to a file share and pick a backup to restore. Why do I have to go to the share and copy the files over locally? WHY????????

Sorry. It really takes a simple thing and makes it extremely time consuming.

Oh, and the service account is administrator on both the local server and the server with the file share I'm trying to access. It has appropriate permissions on the share as well. It can backup to it, why not read from it?

Well, guess it's time to start copying hundreds of files manually.
