I have a Server 2019 which suddenly crashed my RAID 0 configuration.
I do backup my system , but unfortunately , this is the same system as where urbackup runs upon.
I am using Hyper-V and my backups (exchange, domain controllers ) are all VHDZ.
I used my full image backups to restore from
I have followed all the instructions in order to start of with the sets of backups i have remaining.
Unfortunately i cannot use the VHDZ yet to convert this to vhdx or vhd.
I tried several things,
Uncompressed the image with uncrompess_image.bat on a different machine and loaded the backups (parent and one incremental)
It looked good, but in the end i only saw a growth in files.
I tried to assemble_disk.
that brings me to MBR 0 types of errors
But i saw in another topic i don’t have to do this when i am using Hyper-V
I have a new installed machine, copied all the RAW data from the old urbackup server to a new
I am not able to restore from CD i suppose.
So went to option B:
I decrompressed because vhdz by giving selecting the backups i had remaining:
And after i am stuck with a bigger file. And i don’t know how to get the vhd or vhdx from it in order to re-use it in hyper-v
I also saw multiple people saw they cannot recover from vhdz, which makes me very scared…
Uroni please help me with your great solutions. I lost my entire Active directory and Exchange at the moment and all help would be really appreciated.
I quote from your manual:
All the image files will still have the VHDZ extension, as otherwise it would have to change database entries, but the files will not be compressed anymore.
But i want to achieve the VHD extension in order to restore the virtual harddisks on hyper-v is this possible??? Or restore my old urbackupserver on a new machine and restore?
I am very desperate at the moment
