Restore System State failed with Error 3050

Recommended Posts

Hi Community,

 

we try to restore an old Windows DC  but the restore of the NTDS out of the system state failed with the following error:

 

-    25.09.2013 17:27:40: Restoring from SYS-GALAXY-1-2, Snapshot galaxy-1, 07.06.2013 19:00:01
        No files need to be restored
        T-46: VssWBeginRestore: Writer "NTDS" indicated failure of PreRestore, winerr -2147212300, error -3050
        Writer "NTDS" failed and could not be restored, error -3050 ( VSS reported an error).
        Component "ntds" failed and could not be restored, error -3050 ( VSS reported an error).
        System configuration restored, please reboot the computer.
    25.09.2013 17:29:13: 2 execution errors
        Duration: 00:01:33 (00:00:03 idle/loading/preparing)
 

Does anyone know how we can fix this problem?

 

We do not need the DC itself but we need the Certificate Authority from this server and the service wont start because the system is in DSRM mode but we are only able to boot in DSRM mode as long we cant fix the NTDS problem.

 

Thx & Bye Tom

What version of Retrospect are you using?

 

What steps did you take for the restore process? 

 

What operating system version are you restoring?

Servus Mayoff,

 

> What version of Retrospect are you using?

 

Because we are working on a restore for a critical network component we are woriking in a virtual testlab with the newest (demo) version 8.2.177. The backup was created with version 8.1.

 

> What steps did you take for the restore process?

 

We installed a new operating system (Windows server 2003 SP2) with a retrospect client coming from version 8.2 and tried a restore of everything. After that we were only able to boot in the DSRM mode because the directory service couldn't start. In DSRM we tried to restore only the system state with the error in the open posting.

 

> What operating system version are you restoring?

 

Windows server 2003 SP2 32 Bit

 

Thx & Bye Tom

Have you tried using the bootable CD creation wizard included with Retrospect 8? You can then do the restore while booted from the CD to give you a more complete restore.
