    Permissions to restore a VM from VDR 1.2

    AGMONTES Novice

      Hi,

       

      We´re having troubles to restore a VM correctly backed up by VDR 1.2. The logs says this:

       

      TVmConnection::SaveVM: failed to create virtual machine "VM.RECOVERED", error: 1317 (vcbAPI:

      invalid permissions)

      10/13/2010 13:04:26.000: 0xa2031d40: RAPIRefMap::ProXUpdating: msg = ProXAdd, paref = 44, refnum = 9,086

      10/13/2010 13:04:26.000: 0xa2031d40: $[*20750]Trouble writing files, error -3958 ( invalid permissions)

       

      The user who trys the restore has a role with the following permissions, at VCenter Server level, propagated:

       

           

      • Datastore > Allocate Space (effective on datastore)

           

      • Datastore > Browse (effective on datastore)

           

      • Global > Licenses

           

      • Network > Assign network (effective on network or network folder)

           

      • Resource > Assign virtual machine to resource pool (effective on resource pools)

           

      • Virtual Machine > Configuration > Add existing disk

           

      • Virtual Machine > Configuration > Add new disk (effective on virtual machines)

           

      • Virtual Machine > Configuration > Add or remove device (effective on virtual machines)

           

      • Virtual Machine > Configuration > Change resource

           

      • Virtual Machine > Configuration > Disk lease

           

      • Virtual Machine > Configuration > Remove disk

           

      • Virtual Machine > Configuration > Settings

           

      • Virtual Machine > Inventory > Create new

           

      • Virtual Machine > Inventory > Create from existing

       

      Are we missing any permission?

       

      Thanks in advance.

          Did you figure this out? I'm trying out vDR 1.2 on my test-environment and running a "Restore Rehearsal" gives me some of the same error:

          Trouble writing files, error -3958 ( invalid permissions)

          My user is a domain admin. vDR runs under a 'vmware' domain user, with all the credential settings the admin guide ask for, on top-level.
