A system state restore to a different host fails pre-restore if a distributed file services replication (DFSR) writer is included in the restore selection. The following errors are presented:
To circumvent this problem:
Back up the folders on the original host containing the files necessary for replication, but exclude the DFS writer itself from the backup selection. Then restore to the second host in two steps:
- Restore the files from the files view.
- Restore the system state from the system state view. You will be prompted to restart the (second) host.
