During a physical server backup job, an error message opens informing that the source server contains unsupported volumes.
On Windows, NAKIVO Backup & Replication only supports the following dynamic volume types:
- Simple volume: this is a portion of a physical disk that functions like a separate unit. It can consist of a single region on a disk or multiple regions of the same disk that are linked together.
- Spanned volume: this combines areas of unallocated space from multiple disks into one logical volume.
- Striped volume (RAID-0): this is created by interleaving data across two or more physical disks. The data on this type of volume is allocated alternately and evenly to each of the physical disks. Striping is also known as RAID-0, which stripes data across multiple disks.
- Mirrored volume (RAID-1): this is a fault-tolerant volume that provides data redundancy by using two copies of the volume to duplicate the data that is stored on the volume. Mirroring is also known as RAID-1.
If your physical source server contains other types of dynamic volumes, an error message appears when you start a physical server backup job: “The server contains unsupported volumes”.
On Windows, use the Disk Management tool to view and manage your dynamic volumes.
