AOFO errors when backing up the shadow copy

Installed AOFO on two Windows 2003 server domain controllers. Verified that vsp.sys is on the servers. When running backups against the servers it fails on the shadow copy and the error is:AOFO: Initialization failure on: "\\servername\Shadow?Copy?Components". Advanced Open File Option used: Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).
Snapshot provider error (0xE0008524): Unable to initialize the snapshot because the Advanced Open File Option (AOFO) is not installed on the target computer. You must install this option, restart the computer, and then run the job again.

Re: AOFO errors when backing up the shadow copy

Thank you for submitting this support query. This error may occur, if the Advanced open file option(AOFO) is not installed correctly on the target computer. To isolate the issue, please uninstall and re-install AOFO and observe the results.



Please let us know the resources that are backed up using this job.
