    Hi,

    We are trying to restore a single file, that was backed up in SYSTEMSTATE.
    According to IBM this should be possible, but for some reason its not possible to either query og restore the file - tsmvolmap.txt

    Output from ISP BA:

    C:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\baclient>dsmc restore "{TSM-WS2012R2\SystemState\NULL\System State\SystemState}\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\baclient\adsm.sys\VSS_STAGING\ASR\tsmvolmap.txt"

    What is the correct syntax, for restoring individual files from within a systemstate backup?

    I believe tsmvolmap is backed up under \\machine\c$, not systemstate, even if it's backed up during systemstate.

    I checked on the server, it's part of systemstate filespace, but not part of the systemstate backup. When you do an ASR restore, it restores a small group of files first to prepare for the actual systemstate restore. The tsmvolmap.txt is one of those files.

    Maybe create a test VM and do an ASR restore on it to get the files.
