1st, I know SQL Virtual Restore is no longer supported , but for other DBAs and users, has someone seen the issue of "network timeout" error when restoring big databases?
I am trying to restore big clients this way on my MS-SQL lab, and every attempt fails, SQL Virtual Restore says that it cannot be restored due network issues, which I do not have. I am able to restore small clients though, but defeats the purpose of performing a virtual restore.
I have all my backup files on a network storage called DROBO. Which is pretty much a big SAN connected to a PC. I see that storage or SAN from my MS-SQL lab via network or UNC path.
Here is the error:
- Code: Select all
Timed out opening \\\\backuppathhere\\backup.sqb. If the backup file is located on a network device, check network connectivity to the device from this computer
Any ideas on how to fix this? I would love to be able to restore, virtually, a 1TB database I have for development purposes.
