UEFI Hotfix applied to my WHS 2011, Still can't backup GPT Partition


Recommended Posts

All,

 

I saw the post about hotfix that should allow WHS 2011 to backup UEFI based computers with GPT partitions... I downloaded and applied the hotfix.

 

After the connector on the GPT partition computer was updated, I rebooted it and tried to backup the computer... Unsuccessfull

 

I then uninstalled the WHS Connector and then reinstalled the connector...  tried to backup the computer... Unsuccessfull

 

I am at a lost as to my next steps... any suggestion will be appreciated..

Did you also reboot the client?  If not , do so when the connector re-installs.

That is what he rebooted. So did you reboot the server.

I haven't seen any mention of getting the "Client Connector Updates have been installed", or something to that effect.

I guess I don't know what you mean by manually add the connector back in...  Let me provide some more detaisl to see if I may have already done it.. If not, can youpoint me to a post / info on how to do what you are asking about?

 

The WHS 2011 server (HP MediaSmart box with upgraded e6500 & 4GB memory) pushed the new connector to the HP All In One (AIO) computer (I5 & 8GB memory)..after it installed, I rebooted the AIO, and then initiated a manual backup... It failed

I have since uninstalled the WHS 2011 Connector, rebooted the AIO and then re-installed the WHS 2011 connector, and then initiated a manual backup. It too failed.    

 

Last night, while remote Desktoped into the WHS 2011 box,  I noticed in System Device that i had 2 items with a Yellow Exclamation point... I figured out I needed to install the Silicon Image 3531 SATA Controller driver (eSATA port) & the WD SES Device Driver (WD USB3 external drive) and rebooted the WHS... I have rebooted both computer and tried backing up the AIO... It too failed

 

The backups are failing between 2 & 3 percent (To the best of my memory)

 

My attempt to backup only the C drive  just failed...... I think I read a post somewhere that they skipped backing the the recovery partition, and were  able to backup the OS drive. Apparently, it isn't working for me ... :(

 

any other ideas are welcome and appreciated...

Well, I fixed my problem, and am posting in case others come across it in the future...

 

On the PC in question, I started looking through Event Manager and found this entry...

 

 

Backup of volume C: to HPMEDIASMART did not succeed. Reason: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x8007045D): The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007045D)
   at System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ThrowExceptionForHRInternal(Int32 errorCode, IntPtr errorInfo)
   at Microsoft.WindowsServerSolutions.DataProtection.PCBackup.NTFS.ClusterBitMapReader.Next()
   at Microsoft.WindowsServerSolutions.DataProtection.PCBackup.BackupOp.BackupOperation.DoClusterPass1()
   at Microsoft.WindowsServerSolutions.DataProtection.PCBackup.BackupOp.BackupOperation.RunWithoutCatch()

 

I googled 0x8007045D and found advice to run chkdsk /r  which I did.. 

 

The good, was WHS 2011 was able to successfully backup my computer...

 

The bad is the results of the chkdsk (found below) which indicate that there were read failures and 8KB in bad sectors...

 

How big a deal is this?  The computer is only 8 months old....

 

Thanks in Advance.
