Exchange 2010 backup fails code 4207


I have a serious problem with Exchange Information Store backup. The last weekend one of the storage log was full, so we had to remove txt log files by hand.

After that, all Incremental backup jobs have failed with status code 4207.

On Monday I sent a full backup job successfully (code status 1, partially copied), but since this weekend till now all incremental jobs have failed.

I've rebooted all services with error status  when I send a vssadmin list writers, I've rebooted the entire server, I've changed the node as passive, I've purged the folder ../veritas/netbackup/temp ,... I always get the same error.

Before start the backup job, VSS runs properly (all services are Stable), but after the backup job finishes some services change their status to Error (Microsoft Exchange Writer and Microsoft Exchange Replica Writer). If I stop/start these services they recover the Stable status, but backup jobs fail again.

The Exchange service works properly, the status of DAG seems well:

My Exchange technical support hasn't found problems in the environment.

I don't know what is happening..

Anyone could help me, please?

I attach bpfis and bpresolver logs with debug level 3, and backup job logs.

Best regards.

Are there any Windows event

Are there any Windows event log entries regarding MS Exchange consistency check failing?

If the pre-backup consistency check fails, then no backups are possible.
