Hello all

I have enabled systemstate backups of my DC by using the wbadmin tool
"wbadmin enable
backup -addtarget:{00000081-0000-0000-0000-000000000000} -allcritical -schedule:06:00"

from looking at the event logs for these backups the job runs fine without
errors. Now i need to restore an AD object, and when i reboot the DC into
DSRM mode and run  "Wbadmin start systemstaterecovery -version #" i get the
below error message

"system writer is not found in the backup" and it wont let me do a restore.
how can i fix this and what could be the cause?
