Issue With AOFO.. in BE10d with Windows 2003 R2

Hi All,

My backup jobs are completing with Exceptions. The error message in job log is


AOFO: Initialization failure on: "D:". Advanced Open File Option used: Symantec Volume Snapshot Provider (VSP).
AOFO: Unable to get minimum quiet time for physical volumes. Reduce the activity on these volumes, or wait and run the backup when there is less activity on the volumes.
AOFO: Symantec Volume Snapshot Provider (VSP) snapshot cache file settings for volume "D:" : Initial: 0 MB. Maximum: 29874 MB. File: "\\?\Volume{fe40664b-1659-11db-824a-0013725138ba}\Backup Exec AOFO Store\_BEVspCacheFile_12.VSP".
AOFO: Symantec Volume Snapshot Provider (VSP) snapshot settings used: Quiet Time: 5 seconds. Time Out: 2000 seconds.
Note: Backup Exec did not perform a snapshot of all volumes simultaneously because the option 'Process logical volumes for backup one at a time' was selected as a backup job property.


Please find my AOFO settings:

Cache file locations: Use default


Number of secons during which there can be no disk activity before snapshot is created : 3 ( i have reduced from 5 to 3)

can any one help me to resolve this issue.

Please let me if you need more information.

Thanks in Advance

Can any one provide solution for this

Hi,

Try reducing the minimum quite time to 2 seconds.

If you still get the error, it just means that the files are too active or being accessed by some another programme.

Try stopping Anti virus as a test and observe the results.

Hi Sankar,

If following is shown in job log :

AOFO: Symantec Volume Snapshot Provider (VSP) snapshot cache file settings for volume "D:" : Initial: 0 MB. Maximum: 29874 MB. File: "\\?\Volume{fe40664b-1659-11db-824a-0013725138ba}\Backup Exec AOFO Store\_BEVspCacheFile_12.VSP".

Reboot the Server sothat this .vsp file will be deleted and run the backup again .

revert for any further Query
Hope this will help you


Thank you
Gauri
