- VMWare ESX 5.0
- Guest OS: Windows Server 2012
We have a Windows 2012 file server running on VMWare 5.0. There are many volumes on that Windows server and over a million files in it -- as it is the primary file server in our company. We replicate it every hour from 6:00am to 8:00pm on weekdays. At 10:00pm, we backup the "replica". The reason we backup the "replica" but not the production VM is that our backup server only has sufficient storage in the replicated site. Anyway, the replication and backup run well.
We cannot do any File Level Restore. When running a file level restore, we can see that the Veeam server loads the backup media, and mount many volumes under C:\VeeamFLR. However, after loading for about 15 to 20 minutes, the error message is shown: --
The problematic "MountId" changed every time a Windows FLR is run.MountRestorePoint failed, mountId 'c354612d-efc9-48f0-8c0a-47dccc6475b3' FlrManagementService: Failed to mount restore point (mountId:c354612d-efc9-48f0-8c0a-47dccc6475b3) This restore point is already mounting.
- The Veeam server is physical
- The VBK files is on the SAN storage directly attached to the Veeam server.
** On the guest Windows 2012 server, there is a spanned volume. Would it be any problem loading spanned volume? **
Now, I cannot restore individual files.
Please help. Many Thanks
