BMR Restore from DPM Fails


  • I have an issue with a server, I have tried doing a BMR restore that's passes but on reboot i get the following error. After a couple of restarts no luck.

    Your PC needs to restart
    Please Hold down the power button.
    Error Code: 0x00000074

    I have tried restoring to similar hardware and also as a VM and get the same result.

  • Hello!

    Sorry to hear about your problem! We will need some more background information, first of all which version and build of DPM are you using, and what is the OS?

    What are the specs of the physical server that the Bare Metal backup was done on? You mentioned that you attempted to perform a restore to "similar" hardware, could you also give the specs for that physical server?

    Best regards,

  • Thanks for that information, the only difference is the disk space and I assume you have checked that there's enough disk space?

    So you are using Modern Backup Storage right?

    First off, if you haven't already make sure you have the latest RollUp version installed.

    Could you check the backup event log if there would be any more detailed information regarding the backup?

    Applications and Services Logs\Microsoft\Windows\Backup\Operational

    Also check the WSB (Windows Server Backup) log
