The disaster recovery wizard was unable to find 'D:' object/drive backed up. This object is required to update the disaster recovery information.


There are 2 possibilities for the ISO image creation failure :

1.      Cluster nodes hostnames not recognized on the target system .

2.      Recovery information used is not merged as desired so information for volume is missing. .


  • Add cluster nodes and virtual services to hosts file on the target system ( IP_Address FQDN shortname )
  • Use merge tool to merge cluster information.
