  • Restoring from Image

    Hi all,
    I am trying to restore exchange 2003 server using image. Image deployed successfuly but when I start server it display "applying computer settings " forever. The real server from which image was created in offline. The software used for imaging is shadow protect. Has anyone experience this problem? How can I resolve this issue.

    Is it the same base hardware?
    Have you tried restarting in safe mode and looking for driver issues?

      Did you sysprep the image when creating it? I suspect not as that would wipe out the identity and probably cause Exchange to be non-operational. The GUID for the NIC's is unique on each machine and I suspect that is the problem. Never use an imaging product as a method of backup unless the product expilitly states it can perform bare metal restores to dissimilar hardware.
