System Recovery The connection to the recovery agent was lost
I have a critical server that I backup with Symantec System Recovery. This server cannot be backed up with BackupExec2010 due to the file system of the server. its has 1000's of small files that are 1k or less. It takes Backupexec hours to backup just a few GB on this server. It also takes just as long if I attempt to copy a mass amount of these files.
System Recovery works at the block level. This allows for backups to run more efficiently on this server.
I am able to Successfuly restore the OS, but unable to restore a data volume. This is 1 TB in size. Attempted a Restore from a USB Drive and attempted from a another local disk on the server. This restore is not over a network connection.
I created a new backup of the server and tried again with the same error. I tried both a compressed and non compressed restore set. I also tried with and without the origional disk signiture.
The job gets to 99% complete before displaying the error: the connection to the recovery agent was lost.
I click OK and I receive error: The Remote Procedure Call Failed
Trying to see if anyone else has seen this issue with System Recovery.
