Hi, We have a Windows 2012 R2 Server used as a File Server, and Dell MD3200i iSCSi SAN is used as a Storage for this File Server. On another Windows 2012 R2 Server, we have Symantec backup exec v.15 to backup the Data present on the File Server volumes (these are the LUNS from the Storage). As it it taking very long time to backup data on LAN, we wanted to configure Advanced Disk based Backup Option (ADBO) - Offhost backup. With this configuration the backup is failing, get an error message as Snapshot technology error (0xE0008526): Backup Exec could not locate a Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS) software or hardware snapshot technology for this job. Select a valid VSS snapshot technology for the target computer. I have also installed the VSS Hardware Provider from Dell. Using VSSADMIN LIST PROVIDERS command iam able to see the Microsoft and Dell VSS provider, but still backup is failing, please assist.
Is your hardware supported in BE 15
Have you contacted Dell to confirm the SAN and VSS provider are setup correctly?
