restore db from 32 to 64 bit sql2005

edited January 16, 2007 8:54AM in SQL Backup Previous Versions
I'm trying to restore a db from a 32 bit SQL 2005 server to a new blank SQL 2005 64bit server.
It fails with this error:

SQL Server error

server: Msg 3013
REstore database is terminating abnormally
Server: Msg 3203
Read on "SQLBackup_quid" failed:
995(error not found)

SQL Backup exit cod: 1100
SQL error code: 3203

What do I do wrong?
Best regards

    What is the result if you restore only the file list from the backup file e.g.

    master..sqlbackup '-sql "RESTORE FILELISTONLY FROM DISK = [...] " '

    Could you pls restore the header only e.g.

    master..sqlbackup '-sql "RESTORE HEADERONLY FROM DISK = [...] " '

    This will test if the backup file is valid.

    I've tried doing a headeronly, but I had to chose a new file, because the older one was deleted. Please find it enclosed.

    I have since learned that there is something wrong with the SAN that this new SQL Server is running on. It is awfully slow. Could this be the problem?

    Since no errors were returned, could you pls try restoring this file?

    A slow SAN would not cause the original error, but a faulty SAN would.

    It looks like a faulty SAN.
    I think we can close this case as nothing will work on a defect disk system.

    Sorry to disturb you, and thank you for your help.
