I have done a full restore of a few VMs, of which one is a Windows 2008 R2 Domain Controller. It was backed up with VSS support by B&R version 6, and restored to an ESXi5 host.
Now when I boot it for the first time, I am getting in the console the standard black screen saying Windows wasn't shut down correctly, and it offers me to boot in one of the three safe modes, or normally. A screenshot is at http://grab.by/c7Po
Is this expected, or should the booting happen som other way? I have gotten the impression that Veeam somehow should make the VM boot into DSRM itself the first time, and one should wait patiently for it to reboot after up to 15 minutes, after which it would boot normally. Is this what should happen, or should one boot DSRM manually?
Please clarify what one should expect to happen on first boot, and also any steps one should take in order to get a restored 2008 R2 DC running again correctly. This is for everyones' reference, it wasn't easy to find a clear summary on this topic.
