Windows Server Backup Recovery Issue

Hello. I’m currently testing some of my server backups. Right now the server’s OS (Windows Server 2019) are currently running on the physically server. I’m running the backup test in a virtual environment (VMWare) and making sure that I can recover them. I successfully made a backup of the physical servers using the Windows Server Backup in my Storage Server that’s hosting the share folder for my backup. However, I’m still having issue recovering them using the repair disk. The set up I have are listed below.
Physical Server: 192.168.1.2/24
Virtual Server: 192.168.1.101/24
Storage Server: 192.168.1.102/24 (Share path: \\192.168.1.102\Backup)
The machines are able to see each other. I’m able to access the share folder from my Virtual Server and Physical Server. The Physical Server Backup is mapped to \\192.168.1.102\Backup. After mounting the DVD Windows Server 2019 install into the Virtual Server, I ran the repair this computer. I opened up the command prompt and inputted the info below.
-startnet
-netsh
-interface ip
-set address “Ethernet” static 192.168.1.101 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1
-wpeinit
-ping 192.168.1.102 (Success)
-net use \\192.168.1.102\Backup
-Entered credentials (Success)
-wbadmin get versions -backupTarget:\\192.168.1.102\Backup
-Use the version from the previous command (12-120-20)
-wbadmin start sysrecover -version:12-120-20 -backupTarget:\\192.168.1.102\Backup
The error says that the backup doesn’t exist, which makes no sense because I see that the Windows Server Backup is successful and I also verified the content of the share folder. Also, I remember seeing that I don’t have enough permission on the folder even though I added myself in the security group and have full control. I was able to access the share from the Physical Server as well with the same user.
I also tried a different this other method.
-cmd from the repair disk
-startnet
-netsh
-interface ip
-set address “Ethernet” static 192.168.1.101 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1
-wpeinit
-ping 192.168.1.102 (Success)
-net use \\192.168.1.102\Backup
-Entered credentials (Success)
-exit
-System Image Recovery
-used the path to the share folder \\192.168.1.102\Backup
-The error I get is “Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user”
-I tried using the same user and different user both have admin rights, which didn’t work

I wonder if I’m missing something simple. Thank you for reading this.
