Cannot Restore a Down Converted Backup to a SQL Server 2005
Me again, different issue. I need to restore a backup created on a SQL Server 2008 R2 64 bit instance (Production server) to a SQL Server 2005 32 bit instance (Failover server). The backup was created on the prod server using SQL Backup 6.4. The Failover server has SQL Backup 5.3 installed. I used the GUI conversion tool to "down convert" the file (.sqb) but when I try to restore the DB I receive the following errors:
"SQL error 3013: SQL error 3013: RESTORE FILELIST is terminating abnormally.
SQL error 3241: SQL error 3241: The media family on device 'SQLBACKUP_EC2B........E1' is incorrectly formed. SQL Server cannot process this media family.
SQL error 0: Failed to read filelist details (0 rows)
SQL backup exit code 1100
What may I be doing wrong or have missed?
