BackupExec 2010 R2 - VM Exchange 2010 error on backupjob

Hi,

Running BackupExec 2010 R2 on physical server. Exchange 2010 running as virtual machine on Microsoft Hyper-V. I get this message
continously. I have checked and certain times the VSS writer is working, but then I have to reboot the server to get it working and then the backup job runs without this error- but cant afford to reboot the exchange server everyday. What can I do to get this working? What services do I need to check/start
on the Host Hyper-V server as well as Exchange 2010 server?

Restart writers on exchange or host hyper-v server

Does this have to be done on the exchange and hyper-v host server or only exchange?
