    I'm getting this error when I try to check a backup stored on a NAS.  When I attempt to recover from it, I pick "A backup stored on another location" then "Remote shared folder". 

    I put in the path: \\192.168.16.17\public\server\2014-01-24

    And what I get is the above error message: "The specified path is not a remote shared folder"

    The path clearly is a remote shared folder. If I paste it into explorer it opens fine, and I can copy/delete files from it.  What gives?

    Dear Server Expert,

    Currently we have one database server running Windows Server 2012 Standard and SQL Server 2012. Currently, we would like to perform an upgrade of SQL Server 2012 to latest service pack. our server is physical server, so I can't create the snapshot as how the hyper v vm can do. May I know what is the best way of performing backup other than full server backup so we can revert back to the current status when the upgrade is fail?

    Thanks

    Regards,

    A Dell T110 II Server with a pair of freshly installed and initialised SAS RAID 0 disks had to be restored from Windows Backup image stored on an external HDD.

    The "Scanning for System Image disks.." process took a very long time. Two backup disks were tried (both in Vantec USB3 enclosures attached to the T110 USB2.0 ports) and both exhibited the same behaviour. Ultimately one backup disk was transferred into an eSATA enclosure and the "Scanning..." process took in the order of 1 hour or more to complete.

    This is an undesirable delay which I would like to avoid in the future. Can anyone explain why the scanning process takes so long? I am only expecting the restore process to need to locate the \WindowsImageBackup\(server)\ directory and identify the requisite files there. My first guess is that the entire backup set is being read off disk for some reason - based on the length of time taken being commensurate with the size of the backup set and an average of 100MB/s disk read speed,

    I have previously performed a bare-metal restore on an Intel Server/Windows 2008 R2 system with the backup image stored on an installed SATA disk and don't recall experiencing any significant delay in locating the backup image.

    These backup disks are 512-byte sector disks. Is it something to do with the way they are formatted? Or could it be something else entirely (the "empty" virtual disk volume in the Dell? What else could it possibly be?).

  • 10/11/16--04:28: Drive C backup Failed
  • Hi,

    I have a two node Cluster Windows Servers 2008 R2, and a vss failure on both servers.

    Every time I try to make a backup of drive C with wbadmin (Sytemstate, Full drive or a single file) the backup failed with error: 0x80042308 "The specified object was not found."

    The error only happens on Drive C. If a try another volume on same physical disk or a drive in another physical disk, I have no problems.

    Here is everything I did, until now:

    • Install KB 2871085 -  Driver volsnap.sys update
    • Schedule and run a off-line chkdsk 
    • Stop my antivirus
    • Run the command SFC /SCANNOW

    The backup still fails.

    Someone can help me, please?

    A Windows Server 2012 has just been restored from WindowsImageBackup. It is a stand-alone DC that provides basic AD/DNS/DHCP/File shares. Due to catastrophic hardware failure the restore has been performed to a completely new set of equivalent hardware (Dell T110 II server).

    Although things generally appear to be working (staff are able to access file shares, internet, printers, etc), there are a number of faults:-

    • Network adapter has "Public" network type
    • A plethora of various errors pertaining to DNS failure and no DC being found
    • "Active Directory Sites and Services" does not display any items (the usual expandable tree etc).

    And there is a strong suspicion that users are logging on to their workstations with "cached" credentials and not being authenticated by the server.

    The errors being logged include

    16651 Request for a new account-identifier pool failed

    14550 DFS Namespace svc could not init cross-forest trust info on this DC 

    68 Certificate enrolment for Local system failed in authentication to policy servers ... (The specified Domain does not exist or could not be contacted)

    67 (related to 68)

    1126 AD DS was unable to establish a connection with the global catalog.

    And a multitude of others, with a common theme of the DC not being "active" or failed DNS lookup of the domain etc.

    Is there a checklist procedure that I can refer to do diagnose how to restore this DC to operational status? Or any other suggestions on how to tackle this? Thanks.

    Bom dia, depois que apliquei as atualizações ontem, o windows server backup não consegue realizar o backup do volume do sistema operacional. A mensagem é a seguinte:

    Event ID: 5 - The backup operation that started at '‎2016‎-‎10‎-‎11T13:44:51.186413800Z' has failed with following error code '0x807800C5' (There was a failure in preparing the backup image of one of the volumes in the backup set.). Please review the event details for a solution, and then rerun the backup operation once the issue is resolved.

    Quando olho do resumo do backup, logo no final diz:

    Backup of volume C: has failed. The mounted backup volume is inaccessible. Please retry the operation.

    Alguém pode me ajudar?

    Dear Team,

    We have Windows Server 2012 Standard installed on 600GB drive. We have created schedule for vss full backup on 1 TB external drive. But 928 GB from 931 GB showing used & having 50 backup copies available. My question was if i have used space 400gb from 600 GB & having 931 GB hard drive how it got full ? & what should i do

    Thank You,

    Regards

    I've recently setup backups on our Exchange Server (Exchange 2010 on Windows Server 2008 R2, within a virtual VMWare environment) using the inbuilt Windows Server Backup. 

    The backup is written to a dedicated drive (X:) on the server, then the contents transferred via a Robocopy Task to 2 separate locations both on and off site.

    I've just checked and within the backup<g class="gr_ gr_790 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_disable_anim_appear Punctuation only-ins replaceWithoutSep" data-gr-id="790" id="790">drive</g> the actual backup size is 156GB with 250GB being taken up by System Volume Information.  The SVI folder is not being transferred as part of the Robocopy task.

    As I'm using VSS backups, am I able to disable the SVI folder from being created on the X: drive without comprising the backups - either locally stored or those externally held?  The drive is used purely for backups so no live Exchange data is held here. 

    I’ve done some research and am getting some slightly contradictory information so wanted to confirm.

    TIA!

    I have a very old copy on a resources that no long exist (iscsi). I cant figure out how to get rid of it. It shows it as offline. I am troubleshooting why there are only X copies given 50-60% of the backup space is free.

    Any way to delete an old offline copy?

    Hi,
    I have a Windows server 2012 where I configured Windows server backup. The following items are to be backed up (full server backup):

    • system state
    • C: (60GB with about 30GB data)
    • D: (3TB with about 1,5GB dedplucated data)
    • system-reserved (about 300MB)

    The backup target is an iscsi target with 3TB. 
    The backup jobs runs fine and uses about 1,4TB on the iscsi target.
    But only one version/copy (checked with `wbadmin get versions`) is kept. 
    Does anyone have an idea why it only keeps one copy? I already tried to recreate the schedule, remove the backup and start from scratch, but I always end up with just one copy.

    Cheers,
    Nicki

    Hello everybody,

    since a couple of years now, I am backing up my 2008 R2 Server (DC and fileserver) with Microsoft Windows Server backup. For this task I am using five external USB HDDs (2TB). My server contains a 120 GB system drive and a 2 TB volume for storing data of our fileserver as well as different backups from other servers. My data drive is relatively full. I have about 900 GB of data stored, 800 GB free. So on my 2TB destination drives, the first full backup only uses about 1,2 TB of space. The rest, 800 GB, should be availavble for the smaller incremental backups (I know it's not a real incremental backup because of VSS, but WSB also calls it incremental)

    I am backing up daily and this worked perfectly fine for years. I always had about 50 to 80 backups available because the daily rate of change was always relatively small. The first time WSB backs up all the data, and the following ones, it only copied a very small ammount (the changed data), which was maybe 5 or 6 GB at most. This is also the maximum amount of data changed per day. The fileserver with userdata changes at most 1GB, the rest are smaller backups, coming from other servers.

    Since some time now, I have a problem with this. Windows Server Backup copies too much data per day. Sometimes "only" 30GB but some times also 60GB or 90 GB. This can never be the ammount of changed data. Because of that, the 2TB destination drive can only store about 5-8 backups, instead of much more as before.

    Because I can not see, which files are really copied, I can't find where the problem is. I first thought it has something to do with our DFSR fileserver. But WSB does not back up the staging, conflicts and dfsrprivate folders by default (registry key "FilesNotToBackup").

    I did a simple file based search in the explorer, searching for files which changed the last day. The results are as expected only about 3 GB big.

    I already deleted my backup schedule completely, recreated it from scratch and also formatted all my drives in this step, so it is totally clean. But I have the same problem. The last 4 days, I had the same destination drive connected. First day, full backup all data, next day 40gb, next day 99gb.

    I do not know what I can do.

    Hey,

    This seems like a pretty huge issue - during a restoration from backups (as it was required), we were checking files that needed to be restored. By the time we had gone to Shadowcopy in order to restore these files,all Shadowcopies had vanished. The only message in Event Viewer was along the lines of:

    The Shadowcopies for volumes C: and D: were deleted as there is too much I/O activity on the disk.

    From here of course, it meant we were screwed in terms of Onsite backup. I do have a question to ask though:

    I can understand that a Shadowcopy may fail once in a while - but what I don't understand, is why would a single Shadowcopy failure end up deletingevery single Shadowcopy ever made? This seems completely ridiculous and is asking to cause a serious inconvenience and data loss on servers. Is there any reason why

    (a) The Shadowcopy could not pause or otherwise keep what it has already done

    and

    (b) The Shadowcopy could not touch previous Shadowcopies, let alone delete every single one of them

    Of course I understand from here that On-site backups are not flawless and there is Off-site backups as a solution - but I would really prefer to know why this issue occurs, why it does what it does as a result, and how to best avoid the problem again in future.

    Hello for the past week my windows server backups have been failing to start with the following error:

    The backup operation attempted at 'VOLUME NAME' has failed to start, error code '2155348148'. Please review the event details for a solution, and then rerun the backup operation once the issue is resolved.

    At first I thought it was because I installed BackAssist and tried to run a few jobs however I have since stopped those jobs and still have the issue.  Any help would be appreciated.

    - Have a Hyper-V Host (Server Core) that I want to backup to a locally attached USB Disk.

    - Have a 2012 R2 management server where I have installed the Windows Backup feature as well.

    Although it's not possible to connect to the remote Hyper-V host from the Windows Backup GUI directly (very strange and I can not understand this), it's possible to launch "Computer Management", connect to the remote Hyper-V host, and then launch the Windows Backup GUI from inside the computer management.

    Can successfully configure and monitor the Windows Server Backup jobs this way. However, when I try to recover anything from the Hyper-V Host to an alternate location, absolutely no recovery  destination is accepted. Have tried a path on the management server, as well as on the Hyper-V host, but always getting the following error:

    How can I recover anything from the Hyper-V host from the Windows Backup GUI? Recover data directly on the Hyper-V host with wbadmin.exe or any scripts is much too complicated for our service desk employees.

    Thank you in advance for any help.

    Franz

    I'm getting this error when I try to check a backup stored on a NAS.  When I attempt to recover from it, I pick "A backup stored on another location" then "Remote shared folder". 

    I put in the path: \\192.168.16.17\public\server\2014-01-24

    And what I get is the above error message: "The specified path is not a remote shared folder"

    The path clearly is a remote shared folder. If I paste it into explorer it opens fine, and I can copy/delete files from it.  What gives?
