Running Backup Exec 12.0 Small Business Server Suite Rev. 1364 og getting random failing file data-backupjobs with error code E000FED1:
Backup- E: DataV-79-57344-34110 - AOFO: Initialization failure on: "Shadow?Copy?Components". Advanced Open File Option used: Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).
The server is a Windows Small Business Server 2003 SP2.
Solved! Go to Solution.
2 ways of troubleshooting this:
1. Restart the server giving you this error which will reset the VSS Writers.
2. Google and download the VSS Rollup Patch. Install this, restart the server and run the backup job again.
Alright, now a couple of days have gone.
We've tried the following:
- Rebooted server.
- Updated the VSS Update: KB940349
- Rebooted server again.
Now a new error is rechieved when running the backup-job:
Error 8000FFFF as shown above:
Have you installed all the live updates on your Media Server?
In Windows services make sure the Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider and the Volume Shadow Copy services isnt started and that it is set to manual.
Recreate your backup job into two new jobs with the flat files and the system state seperate. In the system state portion run it wihout the Advanced Open File Option selected.
access problem? Please check HKLM\System\CCS\Services\VSS. Did you see a WINS writer in the DIAG Folder?
Give this a try:
I made sure no backups were activly running on our exchange server and then restarted the vss shadowcopy service and it solved backup issues that were reporting the errors mentioned in this article. I also confirmed that exchange backups were not configured to use Advanced Open File Option.
