2008 R2 Bare Metal Recovery Restore Failing
Posted on 2012-03-23
I am performing trial restores on some 2008 R2 servers and one server is failing when I attempt a bare metal restore using the windows 2008 R2 DVD.
HOST - Dell R710 with Raid 5
OS - VMWare ESXi 4.0
Windows 2008 R2
Two drives (C: - 40GB, D: - 100GB)
Roles DC and FILE SERVER.
Windows Server Backup (all backups show successful with no errors or warnings)
I have created a new test VM identical to the production VM i.e. same ram/processors/drives and drive sizes, yet the restore fails with error:
"One fo the backup files is corrupted 0x8078002C"
Has anyone experienced this before?
