Hyper-V Restores from the C:\clusterstorage Mount Point Fail

Article ID: HPV0013 Virtual machines fail to restore from the C:\clusterstorage mount point.

Symptom

While attempting to restore the virtual machine by using the Windows File System Agent on the Hyper-V Server, the restore operation failed.

Cause

Although the C:\clusterstorage mount point was backed up, it cannot be restored because the Hyper-V writer does not engage with the Windows File System Agent.

Resolution

To resolve this issue, exclude the C\clusterstorage mount point from backups.
