Unable to simulate a SBS 2011 restoration
Posted on 2013-11-18
we're fighting from 1 week at least to simulate a Windows SBS 2011 restoration from a complete windows backup server system image, but no concluding results...
Here is the displayed message after we've selected the system image we would like to restore (translated from French) :
"The system image restoration has failed.
No disk which can be used to recover the system disk has been found."
The details link below this message, will display this information : "1) System disk may have been excluded by mistake 2) USB disk may have been assigned as a system disk, 3) An invalid disk may have been assigned as system disk and an error code (0x80042412)."
The SBS 2011 is installed on a DELL server, with 6 disks of 600Go, partitioned with about 2,7To in RAID5 (EFI + disk C + disk D), and 1,8To in RAID0 (disk F).
So, to simulate restoration, we created a virtual machine, and whatever we do, the error appears !
We try to restore "System disk only", have the same number of disk (two), setup the disk capacity correctly... never work.
We are looking for somebody who already have met this situation and have found a solution ?
But if we've got any suggestion, we are ready to test.
It would be great because we have promise to our customer that it works, and that will be quick to restore a machine on another. Now we have doubts...
thanks in advance for your help,
