Windows Clone Install job to Restore a Donor Image bombs out when using IBM Director
Posted on 2006-10-20
I've used IBM Director\Remote Deployment Manager\Get Donor Image to take a snapshot image of my Windows 2003 server.
I then try and restore this image by creating a job under Windows Clone Install.
Watching the console of the server being restored, I see a progress bar as the clone.pqi image is restored.
After a while, the process bombs out - i.e. the progress bar is replaced by a DOS-based screen headed:
CauseWay DOS Extender v3.49 Copyright 1992-99 Michael Devore.
Exception: 0E, Error code: 0004
CaseWay error 09 : Unrecoverable exception. Program terminated.
We've tried one workaround that a colleague found on the web, which talked about there being a problem with image sizes larger than 2GB, but it didn't fix the problem.
The problem is consistent - i.e. it's not just one image (so it's unlikely to be due to a corrupt image) but several.
