INTERNAL Error - The disk group contains no valid configuration copies  (C10000B6).

Did you right click and select Import Foreign Disk?  Or is that when you get this error?

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

I would suggest being very careful doing what is suggested in the link Seth provided.  Make sure you backup your registry before making any changes as you want to be able to recover from any negative affects if there are any.

I did what Seth sayed. The server came up normally again but the problem did not go away.

I suspect this is an advanced format disk -- which 2003 does not support.

Assuming that's the case, there's nothing you can do other than attach the disk to a newer system and copy the data to your 2003 system across the network.

I will move the disk back to the 2012 server and copy the data. Then I will put it back into the 2003 and delete it and format.

How large is the disk volume and how many partitions?

2TB and 1 partition - but the disk comes up as invalid in server 2012.

Seth SimmonsSr. Systems AdministratorCommented:
the disk comes up as invalid in server 2012

i'm confused...was this created in 2003 or 2012?
i may have misread thinking it was created in 2003 and trying to move to 2012

"... i may have misread thinking it was created in 2003 and trying to move to 2012 " ==> the question CLEARLY states he moved it "...  from Windows 2012 to Windows 2003."

It was created in 2012 and moved to 2003 and them moved back to 2012.

Now this error comes up:err when I try to activate the disk in 2012. Something must have happened to him when he was in the 2003 server.

I did fix it. Hex editor to change one byte on the disk did the trick.
