    On a test server, I started in directory services restore mode, used the
    wbadmin to get the version ID of the backup I want to restore, and ran the
    wbadmin start systemstaterecovery -version:05/06/2009-13:13
    Then it asked if I wanted to start the operation. I said yes. It failed,
    "recovery of system state failed" "enumeration of the files failed. The
    parameter is incorrect."
    I can access the files on the E: drive at this command line. I don't see
    what the problem is. The event logs are no help.

  2. Hello Roman,

    What if you also configure the -backuptarget for E: drive?

    wbadmin start systemstaterecovery -version:04/30/2005-09:00 -backupTarget:<VolumeName>

    Best regards

  4. Hello Roman,

    Do you run TrendMicro? There was that problem with machines using it.

    nope. It's just straight Windows Server 2008 64 except that it's on
    VirtualBox (2.2.2). I did the same thing on a totally different system and it
    worked. There's not much to screw up here.
