    Hi there,

    server backup won't work. I'm trying to backup my data drive but the progress stands still @ 0% for about 0.5h and then quits. Manually copying files to the external drives works however. I am locally logged onto the server.

    I already came across this here 

    http:// answers.microsoft. com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-files/when-i-tried-to-backup-my-files-i-recieved-an/2f66e3f2-c1b7-44b2-8fc2-8865b45b212c

    What did I try until now?

    1. disable read-only flag in folder/file properties
    2. take ownership with administrator account
    3. set "better performance" on policies tab of the device properties

    When I check the error log of the backup, I see every single file being rejected for backup, because of the 0x80070013 error.

    What is going on here? Please help me out here ...

    I'm having problems restoring my server with wbadmin start sysrecovery (BMR). I worked around that following these instructions on TechNet and restored the c:\ volume. 

    http    //    social.technet.microsoft.    com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/f15bfe2f-e265-479a-afa3-f055530c97f5/windows-server-backup-0x80042407-seriously

    However, I'm realising that the folder share permissions are not correctly configured as they were before, even partly non-existent. So I'm wondering what components (from wbadmin get items) I need to restore to have the same result as with BMR? Only the SYSTEMSTATE? But when trying to wbadmin start systemstaterecovery, I'm getting the error message that this command is not available from within the recovery environment.

    Is what I'm asking even possible? Your input is highly appreciated.

    1) I run the system state backup from command utility then get the event error 7 and did not complete the backup

    "The backup operation that started at '‎2013‎-‎08‎-‎26T08:27:29.024490800Z' has completed with errors. Please review the event details for a solution, and then rerun the backup operation once the issue is resolved."

    2) When i run the system stat backup from administrative tools | windows server backup then get event error 5 and failed to backup

    "The backup operation that started at '‎2013‎-‎08‎-‎26T10:34:23.275716300Z' has failed with following error code '2155347997'. Please review the event details for a solution, and then rerun the backup operation once the issue is resolved."

    Try to resolved

    1) I have using the both full VSS and VSS copy method but not get success.

    2) I also check about VSS error by follow these command "vssadmin list writers" and "vssadmin list provide" and get no error.

    3) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2182466 and install hotfix but get error - not applicable on this computer" I think this happen because in SP1 hotfix is included

    Still facing the problem any one have any other resolution methode.

    Hi All,

    I have an ASP application running in load balanced environment. It is hosted in two servers and a one db. It has a load balancer that is replicates content between the two servers. I have scripts that are checking for updated content on both servers, running on the task scheduler. 

    I am running Windows Server 2008 R2 and SQL Datbase 2008.

    The issue is that the users are being logged out after every five seconds upon logging in, other users cannot log into the system as so. All the timeout and idle time in the web config and IIS7 are okay.

    I did a session test and the users are not loosing their session IDs. What could be the problem or what is logging the users out?

    Windows Server 2008 Standard x86, full patched, after changing failed disk (one in RAID-1) doesn't correctly create system state backup.

    Backup started and after copy some data i.e. 1,49 GB stopped with message "device is not ready". In Application log is write message

    The description for Event ID 517 from source Microsoft-Windows-Backup cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

    If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

    The following information was included with the event:

    I've checked system partition with chkdsk /f /r  - without errors.

    How I can correct this situation.

    There is different information available about this subject:

    On Microsoft Technet, "Windows Server Backup Feature Overview", http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj614621.aspx, there is the following statement: "Ability to backup volumes greater than 2 terabytes (TB) and with 4 K sector sizes."

    Various other sources and answered questions in this forum like http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/dc9d9778-2c4c-4320-87e9-3e13597c84a4/volumes-larger-than-2088958-megabytes-cannot-be-protected-in-windows-server-2012 says that there is still this 2 TeraByte limitation with server 2012.

    1. Which statement is correct?

    2. What is the Server 2012 Backup File Format? VHD or VHDx?

    Thank you in advance for any clarification.

    I have two Windows 2012 standard servers setup with Windows Backup Server. Both are virtual machines with an extra drive attached for backups. From each server I do a nightly backup to it's local hard drive. If I give that drive a drive letter and share it for access to the other 2012 server and try to restore using the UNC it only shows one backup available. When I restore locally it shows all of the backup sets.

    How can I restore from a different server and have all of the backup sets available?

    Hi Everyone,

    We have had an issue with our DFSR environment, which essentially wiped some data and caused data to reappear on our spoke servers (which shouldn't have happened). I have logged a case with MS and am currently working on this, however, while I am in the process of resolving the issues with DFSR, I would like to ensure that I could potentially "backup" the Volume Shadow Copies/Previous Verisions, of the data that currently exist on some of our spoke servers...

    Is what I am requesting/thinking even remotely possible?

    My thought process was somehow the VSC snapshot could be mounted, and a robocopy job ran to another location to get a copy of the data.

    The reasons for this is that I need to ensure I can still recover data for a certain period of time until I have the DFSR Replication Groups back in sync.

    I am running Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 ( a mix of standard and enterprise editions).

    Any help or guidance on this would  be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in Advance!

    Hi All,

    Our company has a server which has windows server 2012 installed. The server now has three internal drives. The OS in installed in c drive.

    I plan to backup c drive realtime or through scheduled task to a local hard disk. If the c drive stops working (I mean hardware problem), I can simply plug in the hard drive which has backup files and the server can start working as a charm.

    I found there is already a backup tool in server 2012 but am not sure if it can meet my demand.

    Is there any suggestion?

    Thanks all in advance!

    Hello All

    We have Windows Server 2012 running at our office with Hyper-V and we are (trying) to use windows backup service to take regular backups of our server. However, sadly we are getting an error:
    "The backup operation that started at '?2013?-?07?-?16T18:30:22.786000000Z' has failed because the Volume Shadow Copy Service operation to create a shadow copy of the volumes being backed up failed with following error code '0x80780021'. Please review the event details for a solution, and then rerun the backup operation once the issue is resolved."

    We have been through the technet forums but sadly have not been able to find any solution. Any help is much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Dear all,

    I have a System which is based on an I7 processor with 8GB RAM and 500 GB SATA disk size.

    I have install on this system a Windows Server 2008 R2 64, then make a backup using Windows Server Backup

    Then I rety to restore this generated backup on an other PC which is :

    - I5 CPU

    - 8GB Ram

    - SATA HD 500 GB

    The restore opertion works ok but the problem is that windows does not start and the PC keeps on rebooting.

    Both PC are DELL machine and have nothing special in architecture exept CPU type.

    Any reason why the restore operation fails to Windows ?

    Thnaks for idea.

    I have installed SQl Server 2008 R2 Express onto a Windows Server 2008 R2 server. The SQL Server VSS Writer is also installed.

    Do you need to register the SQL Server VSS Writer with Windows Server Backup in order to backup data, or is this done automatically?

    I have just one  2008 R2 Standard domain controller  in my enterprise (Just one, not two)

    I ned to configure a hardware RAID 1 in the domain controller and I will lost all the information of my domain controller.

    I don´t have another fisical server to install server 2008 , and replicate the Active directory with the actual Domain controller so I have to find a way to save the Active directory information, configure the RAID, and restore my server.I tryed doing a system state backup of my domain controller and tryed to restore it in a virtual machine but it didn´t work.

    (With wbadmin command)

    Must I do a full server backup of the DC or there is any way to backup just the system state of my Active directory and restore it  in my new instalation of windows server 2008 as a domain controller?

    Warnings are from VM's performing their own backups. The host backup excludes the VMs' VHD's.

    Other than the wbadmin warning message, I don't find a corresponding message in the Window logs. Should I?

    I have a problem related to Windows Server Backup in Windows Server 2012.

    In my scenario I have two physical servers (host VM's in Hyper-V), both configured to perform daily full backup of the server (VSS Full Backup). The schedule was created within the console of Windows Server Backup is not used any scripts for running backups.

    For storage I'm using 3TB external drives that have been formatted automatically by the tool Windows Server Backup.

    These two host's servers were with a history of XX day backup, but while checking this morning, all my history vanished, stating only the last executed copy of the previous night.

    In a matter of disk space, both hd's have over 60% free space, in which my backup's use only 1TB of space.

    The first case occurred in my server host01, and after a week the same thing happened with my server host02.

    The space for shadow copies (Volume Shadow Copy) on my backup disk was first set to Maximum size "No Limit". Configured in the same backup disk is a limit to the storage space of the volume shadow copy in 25% (715264MB = 698.5 Gb), with the total space of the recognized HD 2794GB.

    I have the same configuration on other servers with Windows Server 2008 and they did not have this problem, always maintaining a long history of backing up and deleting the oldest ones as needed.

    I do not see a specific reason for the tool to be deleting the entire backup history on this server, owning more than 60% of free disk space.

    Has anyone experienced this? What can be happening?

  • 08/31/13--00:41: Please suggest
  • I have a team of 20 people working on different software platforms as vb, java, dot net etc.
    I need to have a single server to configure software for all the various platforms and person working on them can be access the server using authenticated login and password using MSTSC to access these software and develop code directly. Basically there will be systems working as Thin clints connected to centralized server which will work as repository.

    Please suggest us the methods and desered server configuration details required to support this ideology.

    Thanks a ton in advance.
