Hi. We are looking into setting up SQL Clone in Docker containers. Setting up the Clone Agent is not a problem but when we try and create a clone we get an error: "A virtual disk support provider for the specified file was not found (Win32Exception)". 

Are we doing something wrong or is this type of setup impossible at the moment? I have read the discussion on Linux containers but want to know for sure about Windows containers as well.


  • Hi Nordin,

    SQL Clone doesn't currently support clones inside containers, but this something we're actively working on. I'd be very interested in speaking to you about this and gathering your requirements. If you would be available for a call over Zoom/Skype/Teams please drop me an email at [email protected] and I will arrange.
