Symptoms

The error is reported when attempting a vss restore for a VSS-Aware backup set protecting SQL Server.


Cause

The DS-Client cannot resolve the name of the target restore computer.


Workaround

Ensure that the target restore computer name can be resolved from the DS-Client computer (one solution is to edit with Notepad the file C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts and add a line containing the IP and computer name of the target restore computer).
To test whether the name can be resolved, open a command line window in the DS-Client computer and try to ping the computer name of the target restore computer.
