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.

Setup is:

HOST - Dell R710 with Raid 5
OS - VMWare ESXi 4.0

VM
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?

Thanks,

Nigel

Restore is being performed using the 2008 r2 media repair / image recovery feature.

I have resolved this issue by deleteing all existing backups for this server and running the backup again to start from a fresh full backup.

A bare metal recovery of the full backup has completed successfully.
