BSOD 0x0000006B after Domain Controller Restore (BE 2012)
as the title says i get a BSOD with error code 0x0000006B PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILED every time i try to restore a windows 2008R2 (DC) server.
Here is what i did:
I installed a new 2008R2 server, got all the windows updates, promoted it to DC, installed BackupExec2012 (got updates as well, SP3), installed required software and backed the whole thing up (Full Backups only).
Now i am trying to restore a saved state. I am following the instructions from the Admin guide ("Running a manual disaster recovery of a local Windows computer" - page 639).
It is the same physical machine i got the backup from. I install a new Windows 2008R2 Standard, get the HDD config as it was in the backup and set the former computername and installing BE2012 to a diffrent path as in the backup.
At first the restore process failed instantly with error code 0xe000848c (V-79-57344-33932).
After about 4 hours of searching, i found www.symantec.com/connect/ideas/restore-system-state-domain-controller
OK - got this problem solved, adding the domain suffix works.
(I got no idea why this is nowhere to be found in any of the guides provided by the Admin handbook, neither on page 235 nor page 639.
If anyone from Symantec reads this, PLEASE do as PompeyMatt asked you to and add this to the handbook! It saves people time.)
Continuing the Symantec guide i could then restore the files and the system state.
After a reboot the system crashes with 0x0000006B.
Microsoft's solution to it, deleting the bootcat.cache file does not help (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/981833/en-us).
Anyone got an idea how to continue?
I did everything as told in the guides, so i can't possibly think of an error. I hope promoting the server to DC prior to installing BE2012 isn't the problem :(
Should i do windows updates or BE update prior to the restore task?
Might this be a DomainController issue?
Any help is appreciated,
