Hello all

I have enabled systemstate backups of my DC by using the wbadmin tool
"wbadmin enable
backup -addtarget:{00000081-0000-0000-0000-000000000000} -allcritical -schedule:06:00"

from looking at the event logs for these backups the job runs fine without
errors. Now i need to restore an AD object, and when i reboot the DC into
DSRM mode and run "Wbadmin start systemstaterecovery -version #" i get the
below error message

"system writer is not found in the backup" and it wont let me do a restore.
how can i fix this and what could be the cause?

Thanks

Hello Sawyer,

If i am not wrong the backup you have is not usable for restoring a single
AD object. You have taken a backup of a complete volume instead of the system
state and you can not extract the system state from it.

To have a system state backup this is what you have use:
http://technet.microsoft.com/de-de/library/cc742035(WS.10).aspx

"-allCritical" is just a specification to make sure the volume can be backed
up which CONTAINS the system state

Ok i can understand this, however i couldnt even do a systemstate restore, i
would get the error message i posted as soon as i tried to do a restore of
the systemstate, so at this point i wasnt doing an athoritative restore,
just trying to do a system state restore. If im understanding you correctly
the -allcritical switch doesnt backup the systemstate, or it does but i cant
do a restore of the systemstate with this type of backup? Still a bit
confused

Hello Family,

You have taken a full volume backup, that's all. Even if the system state
is in that volume, i think you are not able to extract it, so basically you
DON'T have a system state backup.

I think its something else, because i ran the same wbadmin backup command on
all my 2008 DC's. Below is the output when i run wbadmin get versions on
both 2008 boxes. I was able to do a systemstate restore and an authorative
restore using backup #2, so its got to be something else

#1 Backup time: 6/30/2009 6:00 AM
Backup target: Fixed Disk labeled IRV-EDC 2009_02_11 03:01
DISK_01(\\?\Volume{5c
bc0bb6-e83b-11dd-b611-001143e775a1})
Version identifier: 6/30/2009-13:00
Can Recover: Volume(s), File(s), Application(s), Bare Metal Recovery, System
State

Could not do a systemstate restore of the DC using this backup
____________________________________________________________ _________

#2 Backup time: 6/30/2009 10:00 AM
Backup target: Fixed Disk labeled irv-edc 2009_05_12 02:44
DISK_01(\\?\Volume{b1
2e2306-3e9c-11de-9b1b-0013724ec8c4})
Version identifier: 06/30/2009-17:00
Can Recover: Volume(s), File(s), Application(s), Bare Metal Recovery, System
State

Systemstate recover was succesful and i was also able to do an athoritative
restore using this backup.

You probably already know this but...

Did you authenticate with an Id that is a member of the Backup Operators
Group? My guess is this is a security issue, what I am not sure. I Bing'd
(www.bing.com) it and others that have had this similar issues all pointing
towards ACE.

I noticed that, my account is in the domain admins schema and enterprise

This is going to be very speicifc to something in your setup (note this is a
WAG). It could be you don't have your DC in the Domain Controllers OU,
etc... I don't know your topology/layout of your system, but that would be
my suspect if I had to figure it out.

This is going to be very speicifc to something in your setup (note this is a
WAG). It could be you don't have your DC in the Domain Controllers OU,
etc... I don't know your topology/layout of your system, but that would be
my suspect if I had to figure it out.
