[System State Backup] The version does not support this version of the file format
Unable to backup volume to a sparse file system
On Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2008 R2:
Error message can occur when performing a system state backup job from Windows Server 2012 to a NAS (Linux-based file system - ext4 or XFS). The problem can be caused by Samba (SMB/SMB2) timeouts when writing large files from Windows NTFS file system to the Linux-based sparse file system.
Verify and update the Samba (SMB/SMB2) Configuration
1. Login to the Linux-based NAS using a Telnet client like Putty
2. Locate the smb.conf file (typically, /etc/config/ or /etc/samba/)
3. Open the smb.conf file and review the contents
4. The strict allocate = yes boolean would be absent or set to no in the default smb.conf file
5. Edit the smb.conf file
6. Add the following configuration to the top of the file: strict allocate = yes
7. Save the smb.conf file and exit
To apply the new Samba configuration the smbd service or the Linux-based NAS must be restarted.
To restart the service without rebooting the system, login to the NAS and execute the following command:/etc/init.d/services restart
Alternately, restart the NAS according to the manufactures instructions.
