MS Server 2012 R2 Domain Controller to AWS
Patrick GNovember 1, 2017 01:36:22 PM
Hello My Fellow Zertoites!
I am wondering if any of you would know or have been in my shoes when it comes to using Zerto to replicate/failover a Windows Server 2012 R2 Domain Controller from a vmWare environment – successfully.
I am currently working on doing just that, however I have to outcomes:
- Using AWS Import method fails – It flat out just fails. Doesn’t even go to a point of creating a EC2 instance.
- Using zImport Method (Zerto Import for all volumes and Zerto Import for Data Volumes) – The EC2 instance creates and the system boots to a BSOD.
- I managed to be able to get a screenshot on the AWS EC2 console of the Windows Server 2012 R2 having the BSOD with error code 0xc00002e2
- After the system reboots, I get the “Continue, Troubleshooting, Turn Off Your PC” screen.
- And since this is AWS, I have no ability to press a button or move a mouse to troubleshoot/continue.
- The error code pertains to Active Directory Service not running – which is on a different volume.
- Xen Drivers were installed.
- I did this to another Domain Controller system and had the exact same result.
- This is so far the only 2012 R2 system I had a problem working on a Fail Over Test.
Please let me know if you have any pointers/stories/methods.

I just presented this to the product and engineering teams. I will respond as soon as I hear back from them.
In the meantime, I suggest you open a ticket with support if this is affecting your business’ SLAs.
Stay tuned!Patrick GNovember 1, 2017 08:22:20 PM
Thanks for the reply. I do have a support call (107189) in progress since the 19th of October for this particular one. I reaching out in the forums as mentioned on the ZCP Advanced course I am taking currently on myZerto University, to see if anyone had this kind of problem. Having a Domain Controller is key to a lot of folks out there to get systems using AD to authenticate services and such.
For anyone else – please feel free to chime in if you can.
