Error "extended partitions not supported" while using FLR

Jump to solution

Hi community

We use Avamar 6.1.1-87

I have a problem when i use the FLR-Feature.

By some VMs, where we make image backups, there appears the message "extended partitions are not supported" when I use FLR.

I know that extended partitions aren't supported, this is a documentated limitation.

But the VMs don't have an extended partition as far as I see.

The affected VMs contains Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems.

The VMs contains two Disks. On one disk there are the system and Windows partition.

On the second there is a partition for data and third part applications (see attached image)

Does anybody know what that could be?

Hi F@b

Thank you very much for your answer.

Rebooting and reregistering the proxies was the first thing I tried.

I found the solution for our problem. The problem wasn't the Avamar system but the Windows Server.

The partition of the "System reserved partition" ( which is 100 MB) was buggy.

We copied the data from this partition to the volume c:, recreated the "sytem reserved partition" and then copied them back. Now it works properly.

Hello Peter,

Not sure that it will be the solution but did you tried to reboot your(s) Proxy(s) ?

I know that it seems to be strange, but I had same trouble (after an upgrade, to be honest), when reboot is done all is working as before.

Regards,
