Hello all. I am testing the functionality of OSSV backup/restore in my environment, but having an issue during the restore part when following the directions in the official documentation.
I have a 2008 R2 server (Server1) that I made successful snapvault backups of C: and SystemState using the following commands:
snapvault start -S server1:C: na3240a:/vol/OSSV/tree_server1
snapvault start -S server1:SystemState na3240a:/vol/OSSV/state_server1
(na3240a is the secondary storage in this scenario)
I then reformatted and re-installed Server 2008 R2, installed drivers and the minimum needed to get OSSV installed again.
Next, on Server1, I opened CMD with working directory of the snapvault executables, and ran into the following problem:
snapvault restore -S na3240a:/vol/OSSV/tree_server1 C:
Connection had exception
reply indicated error: (7) Allow
Restore Operation Failed
Error performing restore. Check snapvault log
snapvault restore -S na3240a:/vol/OSSV/state_server1 SystemState
Failed to delete Database backup file C:\Program Files\netapp\snapvault\.OSSV_DATABASE_BACKUP.
The Snapvault logs are not helpful, they just repeat the above information.
Anyone have an idea on this issue?

Found out what the issue was: Snapvault options were not configure to allow any requests. Sending the following command to my filer fixed the issue:
options snapvault.access all
