Full Hyper-V restore failing with status 5 and status 24

Problem

Full Hyper-V restore failing with status 5 and status 24

Error Message

client restore EXIT STATUS 24: socket write failed

Solution

ISSUE:
Hyper-V restores failing with "EXIT STATUS 24:  socket write failed"

SOLUTION:
In the NetBackup for Hyper-V Guide, version 6.5.4 states the following:

"When you restore the virtual machine to a Hyper-V server that has a virtual machine of the same GUID, you must select the Overwrite virtual machine option.  Otherwise, the restore fails."

You must select the "Overwrite virtual machine" option when configuring a full Hyper-V virtual machine restore, or manually delete the existing Hyper-V virtual machine before running the restore.

TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS:
The Detailed Status tab for the restore in the Activity Monitor shows the following error:

10/26/2009 9:31:06 AM - Critical bpbrm(pid=2836) from client <hyper-v host>: FTL - Initial Hyper-V snapshot processing failed

TAR on the Hyper-V host will also have the following message:
