The media family on device LiteSpeed for SQL Server backup file is incorrectly formed. SQL Server cannot process this media family.
In recent times I came across the above error, while restoring the database. We are using the Quest LiteSpeed for the backup/restore. As per the request from the user we have started the restore of the database from the production box to development box.
Restore Query is failing with the above error. I have follow the below checklist to fix the error.
- Check for the LiteSpeed version on both the boxes
- Verified the backup file
- Verified the backup file path
I got the positive result on all the above tests but still the restore is failing. At last I checked the one day old emails and found that, production box was migrated from SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 2008. As you may know that we can’t restore the database from higher version to lower version because of that restore was failed.
Finally I have restore the database on the different SQL Server 2008 development box and up-grade the SQL Server 2005 box with SQL Server 2008
If you come across such kind of error, make sure you are checking the SQL Server version and LiteSpeed version on both source and destination machine.
