======> Stopped log.
-------------

If  mount the image in write mode and rewrite the registry from the registry hive, the Aipcopy process will hang.
In this state, you cannot force terminate Aipcopy from Taskmanager.
When this occurs, the next task cannot be executed.

Also, ntfs 137 error occurs in Windows system eventlog.
-------------
Log Name:         System
Source:           Ntfs
Event ID:       137
Level:           Error

Description:
The default transaction resource manager on volume \Device\sbymnt2\sbymnt0 encountered a non-retryable error and could not start.
The data contains the error code.
-------------


Cause

In rare cases, when mounting an backup image, it may not be possible to configure it correctly as a Windows drive due to network problems and load.
Then, because the convert process is done using an unstable drive, the aipcopy process hangs by the unstable drive.


Workaround

If this issue occur, force reboot the PC.


Target Product

- vStandbyAIP
