Cannot see contents of HYPER-V recovery files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've been having loads of issues with DPM lately, it doesn't seem to be backing up one of my HYPER-V server after its initial copy.

    Today I managed to get a backup but it wont let me browse the content of the VHD. Its comes up with the error saying

    Cannot browse because

    1) VHD contains a dynamic disk (it doesn't)
    2) VHD No volume (it does)
    3) HYPER-v not installed (It is)
    4) automatic mounting is disabled (it isn't)

    Problem is the first backup mounts ok, the ones I did today don't. I am recovering to a file share to test if the recovered VHD are valid.

    Anyone got any ideas why this is happening.

  • Hi,

    do you have DeDup enabled within the VM?

    Nope, not touched dedup.

    I can browse 2 of the VHDX files using DPM. These are ones I converted to Gen 2, the GEN 1 ones I can't... but I have built a new server which is gen2 and I cant browse that either.
