Hi Edwin,

Can you use the email support and file a case? I don't think we will solve it through the forums. There must be something strange happening. I do remember from years back that a SQL writer and a DC writer can cause issues together but I can't remember the details anymore

same here!
Windows Server 2012 R2.
create C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup\ and backup work.

file level restores worked fine
but any kind of bare metal restores was not running.
I tried the backup on a server with the same hardware.
Active Directory doesnt work after the restore.
services (AD, DNS ect.) dont run.
Does anyone have an idea?

Just to give some additional information here...

I won't go too deep in it, but because of the way AD works, with USN's, the behavior of starting in Safe Mode is expected. In fact, this is the safest. Because if you would bring a DC back online that comes from an older timestamp, bad things could happen to your AD environment. That's why the people at MSFT have built this in. So following above mentioned KB is the way to go. The good thing is that you will be able to select whether you are going to do an authoritative restore or non-authoritative restore. (the KB gives you the non-authoritative...) so in case you need to "go back" with your domain to the previous situation (or you need to recover one specific object because you are not using the recycle bin ;-)) you can do that also.

Cheers

Mike

As a quick follow up to this, I have found in several instances that disabling the SQL VSS service has resolved the VSS issues on both DCs and workstations where SQL protection was either N/A or not a priority. This is with the latest version 1.1.2.119.

Hello Steve,

Have you checked with the support team? I believe Endpoint should use the native applications VSS writer if there is any without any issues.
