    Hello,

    Currently I'm facing issue while taking the system state backup via using Ntbackup on server. I've tried to give the location local C: , D: and also remote location but that didn't helped. VSS list writers are stable now issues identified with this. While reviewing the event logs , below warnings I'm getting each time when try to trigger the backup.

    The backup operation that started at '‎2016‎-‎02‎-‎29T18:08:25.538538100Z' has failed with following error code '2155347997' (The operation ended before completion.). Please review the event details for a solution, and then rerun the backup operation once the issue is resolved.

    Below plan already followed:-

    Plan: 1

     Try to take backup on another location might be on some network location or Local c: drive.

    For C: drive

    KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wbengine\SystemStateBackup\

    Set the value of this entry as follows:

    Name: AllowSSBToAnyVolume Data type: DWORD Value data: 1

    Plan: 2

     https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2182466


    Please advise your expert suggestion in order to fix the issue.

    Hi all,

    During backup operations, on my Windows Server 2012 R2 (Hyper-v role installed) I find this warning in Event Log:

    Event ID 51: An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk5\DR43 during a paging operation.

    How could I solve this issue? or Could I safely ignore this message?

    Just for information, before latest OS Update Rollup installation, we also found the event below:

    Event ID 157: Disk 5 has been surprise removed.

    Thanks a lot,

    David

    Hi all,

    probably a very simple answer here but i've recently installed Windows Server Backup on a server. Backuping to a network share works well enough but i've noticed that the size of the backup is a decent size larger than the original source. e.g. backing up a 266 MB folder has resulted in a 314MB folder on the fileshare. Likewise a backup of a 122 MB folder has created a 216 MB folder on the network share. Is there any set logic/ratio to how much bigger the backup copy will be? Had a hunt around online but couldn't find anything.

    Thanks for the help!

    I have a script that runs as a scheduled task. This is the line in the script that starts a backup:

    WBADMIN START BACKUP -backupTarget:\\BackupStorage\backup\BackupA -allCritical -include:c:,d:,f: -vssfull -quiet  >> D:\BackupLogs\backupLogsForA.txt

    I now need to exclude two folders on the D: drive. It is my understanding that with the -allCritical switch it will ignore -exclude.

    My question is, what will I lose if I replace -allCritical with -SystemState and then add the excluded folders? Can I still recover from bare metal with this backup? 

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I have a freshly built and fully updated Server 2012 R2 Standard GUI 3.62TB GPT RAID 5 (3x2TB +1HS). It is currently just setup as a base configuration with no Domain, DNS or DHCP configured, no major apps loaded and no databases. The only role that is loaded is Hyper-V. I would like to make a backup to my network share (UNC Path \\server\shared folder) (also server 2012 R2) as I have done with many previous builds. Those previous builds were also RAID 5 configurations on the same hardware, but with 3x1TB they fell below the 2TB MBR limit and thus were formatted as such. The actual data portion of the source server is 32.3GB and the destination network drive has 1.32TB of free space. The destination share is also formatted GPT. Both source and destination report as 512e (fsutil fsinfo ntfsinfo x:). When I attempt to back up it fails because VSS does not have enough space to create the shadow copy.  That would seem to suggest that my source is where the problem is. To that I would concur since it is the only thing that is different from my previous successes. The source drive has a 3.63 system partition, 300MB Recovery partition, a 99MB EFI Sytem Partition, and a 128MB Reserved partition (hidden).

    Why is VSS failing? Event Log error code 0x80780119. Do I need alter the size of one of the unlettered partitions?

    Thank you in advance.

    PS: This same failure occurs on a 2x4TB RAID 1 build I am testing right next to it. So the commonality here is that both source systems are Svr 12R2 Standard GUI with no roles or apps (other than Hyper-V), w/ 4TB RAID arrays formatted GPT trying to do a server backup to a UNC path on the same destination server.

    I am testing "bare metal" recovery of backups from a Windows Server 2012 machine.  I have already tested restoring individual files, and I am able to successfully restore those from the server.

    What I have done is to start another machine off the Windows 2012 installation DVD and attempt a bare metal restore.  I went into repair, and then system image recovery.  I attempted to restore from a network file share.  It finds no backups. I also copied the Windows Image Backup folder to a local drive in the other machine and pointed it there.  Nothing.

    I then pressed shift-F10 to open a command prompt.  I ran 

    wbadmin get versions -backupTarget:\\[servername]\k

    Where [servername] is the name of the server and k is the share. I get the message:

    No backup was found.

    If I do a dir on the path, I can see WindowsImageBackup and then a folder with the server name under that, and further down.

    If I do wbadmin get versions from the server itself, it lists the backups properly.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Hello, I have a WD Sentinel DX4000 12TB unit and it’s recently been locking up.

    After talking to WD Help they recommended I ‘Perform a Recovery’.

    However every time I get to the last stage I get the error message ‘Error Code: 0x8007000d’

    -------------------------------------

    Recover your server

    Could not reset the server to factory default settings

    Your server was not reset to the factory default settings. Resolve the issue, and then restart the server recovery process.

    Error Code: 0x8007000d

    ------------------------------------

    On the drive its says 'Recovery Started' but no progress number.

    This drive has 9 years of my life on it and I am just a bit panicked.


    Any help much appreciated,

    Thor

    Hello All,

    I have a HP server that I have just installed Server 2012 standard, SQL Server 2012 and Sharepoint 2013.

    When I try to take bare metal backup I get the error: "The system writer is missing", I have tried the backup as the local admin and domain admin.

    The backup will only work if I decide to back up C:, once I select "Bare Metal" or "System State" the backup fails.

    I have tried this solution: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc734021.aspx but have not had any luck yet.

    When I run the command "vssadmin list writers" I can not see "System Writer" listed.

    How can I add/turn on the System Writer?

    I backed up my entire file archive without the OS in Windows Backup. The backup was 2.1TB and the files were organized in such a way as to make retrieval of individual files easy. The idea was that I could use this archive to make targeted selective restores that would save time and bandwidth. Windows backup tells me it can't read the directory! How can this be? Where is the problem and/or the fix?

    Additional notes: The archive file was moved a few times as drives were replaced but there was never an indication of file corruption.

  • 03/07/16--08:17: Backup Software
  • Hello All

    Recently I was using windows NT Backup on server 2003 to do my regular file backup. This would include backing up files on different servers by using a network map drive. Now I have upgraded to windows server 2012 and using a HP LTO Tape Drive. Seeing that I have upgraded to windows server 2012 I cannot use windows NT Backup to conduct my backup and the server backup that comes with the server 2012 does not allow me to use network map drive to conduct backups.

    Is there any free software that I can use which will allow me to do my backups via network map drives and save the data to a tape?

    Sincerely


    R.D.Reid

    Hello All,

    Thanks in advance for any and all help.

    The other day, we had a power outage that messed up something in the windows backup and recovery program.

    I have The 2012 R2 Host, With 2 servers running in Hyper-V.

    1 is Winsvr. and the other is an AD. Both in Hyper-V.

    All 3 are set to do auto backups everyday, each at different times of the day.

    They were both set to backup to an external 1TB SSHD set to A:

    The Host does it's backup as it should. But the two in Hyper-V, is where the problem lies.

    The AD Server, had gone from backing up daily to only backing up every few days.  And the WinSvr will not backup at all, says the path does not exist.

    What are my options, and how can i fix this?

    Thanks

    Rick

    Hello,

    I have backup established via wbadmin. I start backup with command "wbadmin start systemstatebackup -backuptarget:D:", by this command I will create maximum 3 versions. When 3 versions exist and I run the command, the oldest version is deleted.

    What I'm missing here? Why the oldest version is deleted? I want to keep more versions.

    The OS type is: Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise.

    Thanks in advance,

    I want to automate the cleanup of backup versions. I am just backing up a folder to test with. 

    Wbadmin start backup  -backuptarget:\\testsrvr\BackupTest\bkup02 -include:E:\temp -quiet

    I can script the delete of the remote shared folders, but I also want to delete the catalog entry that references them. The -quiet just suppresses the prompts.  There is no -force option. I have tried "echo y|" but there are 2 prompts. I don't want to run this command manually. 

    I know that I can delete the entire catalog with "wbadmin delete catalog -quiet", but I want to keep the current entries. Or doesn't it matter and I should just delete the entire catalog?

    And as a side question, why can't wbadmin delete the backups in the remote shared folder? I've manually deleted the folders before I run the delete backup command and wbadmin still says that it can't delete the backups.

    Hi Everyone!

    This is my situation; 

    SBS 2011 Standard (VM) on Esxi

    Windows Server Backup is configured to backup too 2 x external disks

    This completes the data backup for the system drive and the data drive. 

    However when it gets to the VSS Backup it all falls over, this is the error in the Windows Server Backup, I have tried running this both from the scheduled WSB Application and from a scheduled bat script. 

    Below is the last few lines of the WSB Event logs via Command Prompt.

    Creating a backup of volume Data(E:), copied (99%).
    The backup of volume Data(E:) successfully completed.
    The backup operation stopped before completing.
    Summary of the backup operation:
    ------------------

    The backup operation stopped before completing.
    Detailed error: ERROR - A Volume Shadow Copy Service operation error has
    occurred: (0x80042302)
    A Volume Shadow Copy Service component encountered an unexpected error.
    Check the Application event log for more information.


    The Volume Shadow Copy Service backup complete operation failed. See the event logs for more details.
    ERROR - A Volume Shadow Copy Service operation error has

    At the time of failure in the Application event log below is the VSS error recorded

    Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine IVssAsync::QueryStatus.  hr = 0x800706ba, The RPC server is unavailable.


    Operation:
       BackupComplete Event
       Executing Asynchronous Operation

    Context:
       Current State: BackupComplete

    I have done some research but havent found anything relating to the specific failure (RPC Service is unavailable)
    I have gone through and checked all of the key services (RPC, VSS) and all of these and the dependencies are set to automatic. 

    Please help :)
