  • 08/23/10--08:59: Server 2003 Backup problems
  • Running Windows Server 2003.  Have been using the Backup utility to make daily & weekly backups to Seagate external hard drive.  Tried to restore a file today and get the message that the requested backup file cannot be found.  The file looks like its there in the backup (I can click the check box next to it) but restore says it cannot be found.  i've tried different tapes and different files, and I know I have restored files before.  Help!!  I'm not connected to the internet on the server either.

    I've been running server backup for about 5 days now and I have some questions.

    1.)  So far, server backup only reports one backup available (the last one).  My backup size is currently 732gb and my backup drive is 1394gb.  I would expect to be able to keep more than one copy if the backup is doing incremental backups.  But it appears to be doing a full backup each time which probably explains why I only have one copy.  The drives being backed up are NTFS, not REFS which I have seen as the culprit in another post.  Any ideas?

    2.)  I want to setup a backup swap for offsite storage.  I only have one bay available to mount a backup drive at any time.  From what I've read, I would need to have both drives online in order to add them to the config at the same time.  Otherwise I'll have to re-run the backup wizard every time I swap the drives.  Is there a workaround for this?  Are there any plans to support backup sets with Windows Server Backup in the future?

    Thanks for any help,

  • 06/16/13--10:02: Block level backup
  • Hi, I am currently backing up my remote site server using robocopy. For the most part it works great. However it becomes a problem when pst files need to be backup up. Each time pst file changes, robocopy copies the entire file instead of the changed information . This is a problem because the pst files are at 10gb in size and the remote link speed is slow so it takes 12 hours just to backup one pst file. Can anyone recommend a bit/block level backup utility to address this issue? Thanks

  • 06/17/13--09:43: robocopy volume snapshots
  • I am trying to robocopy data from a mounted volume shadow snapshot. I tried to following methods

    1. opened a command shell as admin under psexec

    2. typed in vssadmin list shadows /for=c:

    3.mounted a snapshot by typing mklink /d C:\shadow2  \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy2\

    4. I can access the mounted snapshot via the explorer browser and cmd shell

    5. When I try to acquire data using robocopy     robocopy "\\remotemachineip\shadow2" "\\examinermachineip\g\snapshot" /e /zb /copy:DATSO /xj /a-:h /r:10 /w:10

    I get the error Error 317 (0x0000013D) Accessing Source Directory. I have also tried giving myself full permissions on the snapshot folder shadow 2;however, the same issue arises. I am stumped here.

    We did a Microsoft backup restore of windows server 2008 R2 (not SQL Server).  That created a copy of all files in all dirs.  For example, it created a copy of all files or directories in the windows directory.  For the net beans install, for example, for every single file "x", it created "copy of x" in the same directory.  This corrupted the iis because of all the copies.  Same thing with some of the other applications...they didn't work.  Once we deleted the copies, for example, iis worked again.  Same thing with net beans.  We're still working on some of the other programs. 

    So, next time we do a restore, we want to prevent "copy of x" for everything to be created.  How do we do that?  Any ideas what we did or didn't do?

    Thanks,

    The Windows Server Backup page on TechNet says "You can use Windows Server Backup to create and manage backups for the local computer or a remote computer.

    I've looked all through the fairly spartan backup options on Windows Server 2012 and I cannot find any way to backup or manage backups of a remote server. Can someone shed some light on this? Is it possible to backup a remote server, or even manage the backups on a remote server from the Windows Server Backup interface?

    I'm looking at the possibility of ditching BackUp Exec 10d(!) in favor of Windows Server Backup, since we don't need anything special.

    I have a 2012 Server running Hyper-V, the VM is windows 7 pro.  The backup completes sometimes and sometimes it does not.  When it does complete it shows the "Host Components" are 0 KB.  Sometimes the Host Components fail to backup

    Here are the details:

    Error in backup of C:\ during enumerate: Error [0x80070003] The system cannot find the path specified.

    What is the best practice for protecting a domain users profile behind the scenes?

    Using a logon script to robocopy the profile over to the server?

    Or using folder redirection?

    I have run into issues with both, like a handy red X over files with folder redirection or GPO's failing to run on Vista/7 machines, or even sync issues.  With these issues, at least the end user knows something is wrong and to contact me.

    With the logon batch file (which I did not create, a friend did) I have seen it either not run on Windows 7/ Vista because of UAC.  Or just stop functioning.  The only way I know it doesn't work, is checking the log file it creates to see the most recent date.  The user has no clue it stopped working and I would have to manually check each workstation.

    So what is the best practice here?  What do you do to protect user data?

    I've recently installed two 2012 servers on HP ML350p Gen8.

    Both giving the same error while trying to backup (system state , BMR and c:) , "the drive cannot find the sector requested".

    What i already tried (without result):

    * increase the system volume bij 1MB or 10MB ,since this seems to be a common fix for this issue-> giving me a "Parameter Error"

    *removing /adding the multiple disks again via wbadmin enable backup -addtarget:[id]

    *formatting the disks.

    *removing the backup schedule and re-apply a new one

    *chkdsk run on all disks

    Can somebody advice a solution / cause for this behaviour? Below the error description.

    Thx in advance!

    Windows Server backup. Server 2008 R2 Enterprise 64-bit.

    Hello, all. I am able to do a System State backup with no problem. But when I do a bare-metal backup, I get the error, below.

    This occurs on three servers: one is the domain controller, the other an Exchange server one is our SQL database server. All three are R2 enterprise 64-bit.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I am using Server 2008 R2, I have a flakey issue with folder redirection.  I am trying to determine if this is a software issue or hardware.  

    I have a few workstations running windows 7 that run into a red X problem.  I simply have docs, desktop redirected to the server then the server backs up. During the day the Windows 7 Machines will have a red x over some files and folders and they will be slightly grayed out.  The user cannot open those files or folders.  The simple fix is reboot the workstation, everything goes back to normal.  But this is annoying if they have to do this multiple times a day.  This workstation is brand new, I just installed it a month or so ago and that is when the issue started happening.  It's predecessor was an eight year old XP machine that was slow but worked fine with the folder redirection from the sbs 2003 server to the new server 2008 r2.

    The hardware issue possibility is that they are on the top floor of a building, the roof caved in a few months back and soaked the router and switches with rain water.  Everything seemed to be ok, they did not want to invest in new equipment since it was "working".

    I noticed after I installed a new AP shortly after the waterfall the wireless clients lose their internet connection sometimes. It is erratic and seems to only happen when I am not there, i can never recreate the issue when I am onsite.  I have yet to move the AP to a different Ethernet jack and retest, but that is for another day.

    Dell server was shipped with several partitions (ESP, EPBR and WINRETOOLS). On a traditional non-Dell system, DISKPART works to change the attributes of these partitions (I need to RESIZE larger or smaller to allow for VSS backups). However, Dell has done something peculiar and when I attempt to change anything (delete, attributes, delete volume, etc) either DISKPART terminates unexpectedly, or I get an error VIRTUAL DISK SERVICE ERROR: THE OBJECT IS NOT FOUND. 

    What's the secret to working with and changing DELL hidden\utility partitions?

  • 06/18/13--08:34: Windows server backup
  • Is this ever going to be fixed? I have been working with this interface for years now. The same problems that were in 2008 are in 2012. It has problems updating the deleted files it runs and stops with no way really to trouble shoot. Yeah there are some codes but it is like trying to find a needle in a hay stack. There are tons of people having tons of problems with this. Considering that in the EULA Microsoft states that it is a lease of the software and no changes can be made then as the leaser I would like to request you go back to the drawing board with this piece of crap.  It is a back up system and that by all accounts should put some urgency in to your bones. The back up is the most important thing you can do and Microsoft just keeps letting it slide. Stop using end users as your beta testers and fix the crap before you put it out. It has problems with catalogs and tons of problems with the new disk format even with the patch. I am not going to list the problems because it is very easy to find them by doing a search for windows back up. There are thousands of problems listed and still no fix. We take care of so many servers and have tried a ton of different setups and configurations to make this work. We are no longer using NAS and we are just using ext drives. We can not get anymore basic then that.  What we have found is any disk that even has NAS in the documentation has a problem with this application running. Red drives are a big no no. Which is ludicrous because they reduce heat and it seams that is what you would want for a back up. Please,  please, please, scarp this and start over. The inconsistency is ridicules and for a back up software that can not happen.  Why would you put out something like this? Go back t Veritas (windows 2000) and try that again. At least it worked on a  consistent basses.

    I did a complete file backup in Vista prior to a complete Windows restore.  Now that the restore is complete, I can't restore the backup. It's really big; over 250GB. Here is what I see:

    1. I go to Advanced Restore

    2. It defaults to "Files from a backup made on another computer."

    3. After clicking next, I see a brief search and it asks for the location. I select the USB drive (J:).

    4. After next, it says: Windows was not able to find any backup sets on J:.

    I can browse the J: drive and all the files are there in zip format. Since there are 1164 folders, manual is NOT an option.

    HELP!!
