Backup Exec 2012 Virtualization: exclude Disk from Virtualization
We have a physical server with Windows 2003 R2 running with two disks: a basic one ("C:") with the Operating system installed and a dynamical one. On the dynamic disk is a Sybase Database installed (bin + data) and the SQL databases located (only data).
Regarding that dynamic disks cannot be virtualized
I followed https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/blogs/exclude-files-simplified-disaster-recovery-sdr-backup-backup-exec-2012 and excluded the D: drive, a drive necessary for SDR, via the registry entry.
But still the Virtualization fails because Disk 1 (the dynamic one) is created nevertheless I don't backup anything from this disk. In the "Convert to Virtual Options", I can choose "Edit Disk Configuration" but I cannot disable one of the disks (see screenshot).
Is there a way to tell Backup Exec to exclude disks from virtualization? I wouldn't mind not having SQL up and running immediately, I just want to have the OS itself virtualized.
Or is there something more in the system state which needs to be excluded like the D: partition via a registry entry?
