When you run an Automated System Recovery (ASR) restoration on a server that is running Microsoft Windows Server 2003 for Itanium-based Systems, the operation fails. When this problem occurs, you receive one of the following error messages.
Error message 1
Error message 2
Error message 3
This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
- You are using a Bull NovaScale 6085 (8-way Intel Itanium 2) server.
- The server has an internal USB CD drive.
- The server has an external USB floppy drive.
This problem occurs because the USB port for the internal CD drive on a Bull NovaScale 6085 server is hard-wired to the last port number. However, the behavior of the Setupldr.efi file depends on the order of the USB ports. Therefore, ASR restoration works incorrectly if the USB port number of the floppy drive is lower than the USB port number of the CD drive.
