“Granular restores cannot be performed for these volumes….” -Backup Exec 2010

with one comment

“Granular restores cannot be performed for these volumes….”

So I saw this error earlier today after a backup job finished for my external linux bind server. I had the selection list setup to do a vmdk backup through my esxi server. Turns out Windows operating systems only support the GRT (Granular Recovery Technology) backup feature. So running a backup with GRT enabled on a non-Windows OS (ie. Linux) will give you this error. However the back did finish successfully. Just a FYI 😉

(Granular Recovery Technology)
A backup option that is available with some Backup Exec Agents. Granular Recovery Technology lets you restore individual items from database backups. A separate backup of the individual items is not required for you to recover one item.
