New independent recovery point created for the backup job

All

 

I was testing SSR 2013 R2 on a virtualized Windows 7 workstation.  As the backup destination I added another virtual drive and configured a backup schedule which  worked fine creating the first base image and then incremental images with consolidation as well.

Then I detached the vitrual disk used as the backup destination , added it to another VM and used SSR recovery cd to test restoration to dis-similar hardware which worked fine as well.

Once the tests were done I detached from the test VM and attached the backup destination virtual disk back to the original windows 7 vm and SSR detected that few backup schedules were missed so it wanted to start the backup job.

Once the backup is started it created a completly new base image and incremental backups insted of using the existing base image.

Is this normal behaviour ?

Thanks,

Dhanushka
