BMR Error - System Image Restore Failed RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    I recently attempted a DPM 2010 BMR restore to an HP DL380 G6 running W2K8 Enterprise R2 and recieved the following error:

    "The system image restore failed - Error details: Restore failed because a disk which was critical at backup is excluded.  To continue you need to either remove the disk from exclusion list or detach it from machine or clean it using DiskPart utility, and then retry restore.  If you cannot clean or detach it then change the disk signature."

    The server was a node within a Windows Cluster and was attached to an HP P2000 G3 MSA Fibre Channel SAN.  The BMR backup included the C: & D: volumes which are located on the server itself but i'm assuming that it's failing because when I initiated the restore it was no longer connected to the SAN?

    Has anyone experienced this issue before and if so can you suggest how to resolve it?

    Thanks!
