Hello,
I am trying to install an Acronis cloud agent on a Windows 2016 server but every time I install it, the services for Acronis do not install.  The application completes and is functioning but when I try and run a backup it will freeze.

I found an error in the Event Viewer, 10016, from DistributedCOM that references the AD account I am using for the services.  I found an article that walked me through changing the owner of a couple of registry keys and assigning permissions but after a reboot i am still getting the same error.

Any help would be appreciated.  Below is the exact error.

The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
{D63B10C5-BB46-4990-A94F-E40B9D520160}
 and APPID
{9CA88EE3-ACB7-47C8-AFC4-AB702511C276}
 to the user domain\user SID (S-1-5-21-1275210071-861567501-682003330-6644) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Unavailable SID (Unavailable). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

I have come across a need to image and deploy said image to a different pc for a hot spare. In the past, I have used Paragon HDR Suite 12 and Acronis Cloud for file level and system imaging. However in this case I cannot deploy those images to the new machine going from a Lenovoa to a Dell machine. I need a standalone solution to image a system fully and deploy it to a different device. I have not found solid information on how to do this with the tools I have so I am asking for suggestions on something I can use to do these.

Thanks in advance!

I have had multiple post regarding this issue in the past days, but no workable solution, Im sorry to say.

I have a physical server running Microsoft Server 2008R2.
I need to convert this to a virtual machine I can run on a new Server 2016 with Hyper-V.

I have tried using Disk2Vhd.exe and Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter 3.1 both both methods fails!!

I have heard, that Acronis Backup can do this job, but I have no experience with Acronis.

Your input will be appreciated!!! :-)

When I find a failing hard drive (and some are "failing" not because of bad data), I will image them and clone onto a new HD.
Occasionally, there *is* bad data or surface issues.  In those cases the imaging can fail.  Usually, if I run HDDRegenerator, I am then able to create an image and then the clone.
Then, things like CHKDSK, DISM, SFC can all be run on the new hard drive.

Today I'm dealing with an HD that works ok in its computer but demonstrates intermittent and very slow data transfer.
So, it's time it be replaced.

Clonzilla in the normal way of running wouldn't create an image of the main partition.
So, as above, I next ran HDDRegenerator which showed NO bad spots but did some "Repairs".
But still, Clonzilla in the normal way of running wouldn't create an image of the main partition.
It appears that Acronis True Image may be having trouble as well - even though I've told it to ignore errors.
Since the drive is likely worth keeping (re: contents), I'd like to force a clone of it.
Does Clonezilla have a way?  I really prefer using it but don't know much about its less-used capabilities.
Other tools you might recommend?

Working for a small law-firm client setting up a disaster recovery protocol, utilizing Acronis True Image with Universal Restore. I have used this solution before for other clients and it went flawlessly.

Source machine: Win7 Pro Acer 4GB RAM dual core. Did the Acronis image save and created Acronis Universal restore media.

Took an old box and attempted to restore to it and got BSOD, spent a day or two then bought a refurb HP Elite 8100 from Amazon with quad core icore 5 and 8gb ram.

I attempted Acronis Universal and it gets stuck on missing driver. So I went everywhere I could and got all the drivers I could However some drivers are EXE and I do NOT want to run those exe's on one of my production machines for fear that they will attempt to overwrite perfectly good drivers on the production machines.

Where can I get .inf, .sys, etc. PCI drivers for HP Elite 8100?

I used to rely exclusively on ExpertsExchange back in the day, now I find myself back into the trenches and wondering if you all are as good as you used to be.

Thanks in advance for your attention, regards,
Bob

Hello experts I'm trying to compare Pros / Cons of using Windows build-in back-up & Acronis 12.5 for windows server.
Also which type of media is best for storing back-ups on.  Traditionally we used magnetic tapes, but thinking of switching to HDD's.
Also Pros/Cons of Using HDD / tape / online back.

Hi,

We have configured a Lenovo thinkpad running windows 10 and want to clone the drive to 14 additonal identical machines. Our plan is to use either acronis or easus to perform the task. Our concern is reggarding the PId. It's our understanding that Windows 10 will auto authenticate with the proper PId even after cloning as the the code is embedded in the bios. Is that correct?

Thanks,

Well, the question title says it all, but what I am looking for are these features:

- Fast
- Software independant (hardware cloning, the device needs to do the job)
- Clone to a smaller sized disk (if the amount of data on the source disk allows it, does not exceed the target disk total size)

I have seen devices like Sandberg Diskcloner / Sharkoon Quickport XT Duo Clone and Icy Box Clonestation.

No idea what to expect, anyone any experience?

Thank you

What is the best and most efficient way to install images on machines.
I know there are Acronis and ghost, but also Microsoft has it's own program , but it takes more time to install.

Which one do you recommend? I want to be able to press a certain key a boot with PXE from the network or a bookable USB and install the image from a shared network location.

Hello All,

I am having issues creating an image using Acronis True Image 2013 for the new Dell Optiplex 5050 with Windows 10. First, the operating system will not boot if i take Secure Boot and UEFI mode off. I am unsure if this is the cause of the error i receive but when i am creating the image the error i receive is, "error creating file". I've made sure that the external drive that i am putting the image on is in the right file format but this is the first time i am encountering this error message. I've tried changing the settings in the BIOS but no setting changes seem to work.

Any help is appreciated, even if there might be a better way to image these machines.


Thanks!

Thanks for sharing your story. Ransomware is a topic I follow closely and have a lot of interest in. Sorry to hear you were hit by these criminal scum bags and while it irks me to know they profited from your misfortune not once, but twice, I understand the dilemma you were faced with. Backups are something we all tend to fall lax with at times and this story highlights the reasons we all need to stay vigilant. Good luck for the future.

We use version 11.5 at our customer sites.  A recovery needs to be done on a laptop that has no CD drive--which is what I've always used in the past to boot up the recovery CD.  But I see that the Acronis tools menu will let me write the bootable files to a formatted flash drive, and it does indeed write a lot of files and folders.  But then if I reboot the computer and press F12 to choose my boot device, all it shows is the hard drive.  And if I change the BIOS order to boot first off the USB drive, it says it has no boot partition (or something like that).

I always thought "special files" would have to be written to the USB drive, similar to what is done (I assume) when Acronis burns a bootable CD.  I have seen complicated discussions online about using diskpart to create a bootable USB drive--but the bootable media builder in the tools menu in Acronis certainly doesn't say anything about all that--seemingly indicating it is doing everything needed to be able to  boot off a USB drive...but it doesn't work.

I'm doing my testing on my Win10 laptop, using Acronis Backup 11.5.  Any ideas?  TIA

Is it possible to backup and restore just the registry? Acronis can backup and restore an entire system into an image but is there a program out there that can create (backup) an image of just the registry and (restore) just the registry?

Long time ago, I have set up a backup task in Acronis TrueImage 2014 and protected it with password.
Of course I have forgot the password... and now want to delete the task. Which the software doesn't allow without the password.

I don't need to recover the password or the files in the backup, just want to delete it completely.

This is about the Acronis Backup & Recovery 11. We found that one of the service - Acronis Managed Machine service (mms) sometimes shows "stopping" while kicks start the scheduled backup job. When this service in this state, the only way we can do is to system reboot the server so as the service will be back to normal started state. We did use process explorer to "kill" the mms, however, we still can't manually start the backup job.

Out of no way, we are using the task scheduler to schedule to stop and start 5 Acronis services. Basically are those net stop/net start commands with 30 seconds interval as attached. The sequences are, net stop all the services in this orderly - Acronis Managed Machine service > Acronis Remote Agent > Acronis removable storage management > Acronis Scheduler2 > Acronis VSS Provider; and then net start same services in reverse order.

However, still, the Acronis Managed Machine service shows "stopping" upon the schedule restart. Is there a way that stop this service forcibly? As long as this service is stop, and then re-start shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks,

Can anyone tell me if the RD1000 will work with the Acronis 12.5 Standard version for Server?  It says doesn't support tape drives but the advanced does, but I know RD1000 isn't really read as a tape drive but as an external drive.

Also, if anyone has this running, can you eject the tapes after backups using a command?

Thanks in advance.
