    When the backup kicks off at 7PM the disk i/o goes through the roof and the system becomes totally unresponsive. RDP access times out and network pings even fail. This lasts for about 20 minutes before I can rdp into the system and I can see that the backup is running. Almost no progress is made during the outage but the backup then run successfully like nothing out of the ordinary happened. I have tried it with the full bare metal restore option and simply backing up the C drive. I am backing up to a network share. It is an Exchange 2013 server in a single server environment. During the lockout period there are errors logged by MSExchangeRepl (Id 4402 & 4404) and ExchangeStoreDB (Id 218 & 244) all having to do with access to the data on the hard drives. This is a vm on a ProxMox server so I am able to see that the disk reads are off the charts. Any suggestions? If you need additional information I would be happy to post more. Thanks for your help.

  • 05/09/14--08:06: Dell VSS writer failes
  • Hi All

    I know this is something Dell should propably help with but maybe someone here can put me in the right direction

    We are running backups on our Virtual environment using veeam and we are receiving the following error:

    2014-05-09 08:38:47 AM :: Unable to create snapshot (Dell EqualLogic VSS HW Provider) (mode: Hyper-V child partition snapshot).

    The shadow copy provider had an unexpected error while trying to process the specified operation.

    Looking at the host that the VM runs on I get the following  two errors:

    I am trying to find the most current documentation for the wbadmin command, a web search brings me to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754015.aspx however I do not believe that is complete.

    For instance, when recovering a file you need to select an Item Type which according to the link above has to be Volume, App or File, however from digging around other places on the web I see that a type of HyperV is also supported and there seem to be additional options that go along with recovering virtual machines.

    If I type wbadmin start recovery -? it does seem to show me those options but I am wondering if Microsoft has this information posted on a website someplace where it would be a bit easier to read through.

    Thanks in advance.

     The system is Windows Server 2003 R2.
      We have a data storage device which are using RAID6 configuration.
      Recently we extended HDD capacity.  Before upgrading , each hard disk was 1T, while it's 2T after upgrading.
      Previous HDD type is MBR (Master boot record), the NTBackup was fine.
      After upgrading, we changed the HDD type to GPT (GUID Partition Table) .
      But a problem occurs. The NTBackup is not working.  Error massage shows: waiting to retry shadow copy.
      Does NTBackup support GPT disk?
      Would anyone kindly give some suggestions on solving this backup problem?  
      Thanks.

    We are going to upgrade or server to Windows Server 2012 Essentials.

    Today we are using Symantec Backup Exec.

    Will the built in backup in WS be enough?

    We will be using MS SQL Server and it's crucial that that data will be backed up properly.

  • 05/12/14--04:35: Back up to Remote Site
  • I have Windows server 2012 standard edition servers for my production environment. I would like to setup a DR site which will be 2000 kms away from my present site. Is there any limitations if i use windows backup utility for the same backup. Will a 8MBPS leased line be sufficient to support my backup to network location, if the size of data being backed up goes up to 1 TB? can anyone share me the procedure to configure the same and also suggest the recommended hard ware and networking requirements for this?

    Thanks a lot.

    I have been running the built in backup software on a 2012 server. Today I noticed that I only have 3 days of backups.

    The server is 2012 running Hyper-V with 6 VMs.  I had the backup software configured to backup all the VMS and a bare metal backup to an external 2 TB USB drive.  I have been looking at the event logs and search the web without much success up to this point.

    The event log does have the following information message:

    Backup started a fresh backup for volume '{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}' ('Esp') : [Reason: 'Volume size changed']. This may cause loss of older backup versions when backup completes.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    The backup operation that started at <var>time</var> 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.

    I back up my Windows 7 religiously every 3 months using Windows Backup and keep the hard drive at another location (in case of fire at home). This time everything went wrong:

    1. The first backup attempt failed. Not enough space on hard drive, supposedly.
    2. I deleted previous backups from the 1 TB hard drive and started a new complete Windows backup.
    3. That backup also failed (after several hours) but did not give a reason. I checked the "details" but there were really no details at all.
    4. I figure a reboot might help, so I reboot my Windows 7 system (which I do every day).
    5. The mouse did not work, so I rebooted again. (This happened approx. every 5th time I rebooted that drive.)
    6. But this time the boot manager was not found. ?! Tried again multiple times - no luck. Hard drive is now completely dead. So now I have no hard drive AND NO BACKUP.
    7. Husband (IT professional) tries everything to access the hard drive. No choice but to RMA, he says. He gets me a new hard drive and installs a new Windows 7 system similar to my old one.
    8. So we connected the external hard drive just to see what's on it. Content:
      • A MyName-PC"file" from the day I tried making this last backup.
      • WindowsImageBackup folder from Jan. 2012
      • MediaID.bin from Jan. 2012
    9. So I double-click MyName-PC and get the Windows Backup dialog that asks, "Do you want to restore files from this backup?" Heck yes! I clickRestore files. But I get an error message: "The backup application could not start due to an internal error: (0xC0003005)." No further information.
    10. So I drill down into WindowsImageBackupand there are 10 XML files in there with long names, plus a huge VHD file and BackupSpecs.xml.

    Please, any advice what to do? I am very concerned about this. Above all my family's photos from 15 years seem to be lost, which is unacceptable.

    Questions (answer any or all, please!):

    1. Is there likely to be any way to restore (or get files off of) the hard drive that appears to be completely dead?
    2. Can I do anything with the files (described above) on the external hard drive? Even though the backup failed (according to the error message from the dying hard drive), it did run for several hours. I apparently can't get Windows Backup to restore them, but is there any other way?
    3. There were previous backups on the external hard drive. I deleted those right before starting the new backup. The hard drive properties say that 351 GB is used out of 1 TB. Is it possible that some of those photos can be restored even though they were deleted?
    4. Any other advice? What's my next step? (I have to get those pictures back one way or another...)

    Would really appreciate any help. Thank you.

    Let's say currently my server license is not activated.

    I do a windows server backup image.

    After that, I activate my license

    If I restore the image, will the server have license activated or not?

    Hi.

    I'm having difficulties with moving my Windows Server 2008 R2 installation to new hardware.

    After successfully performing a bare metal restore the system boots up, it's able to log me in and it starts installing drivers. Once it installs all it wants my IPMI controls suddenly stop working. I'm thinking about incorrect USB driver. Everything else in IPMI (e.g. power on/off) works fine, controls work in BIOS or when selecting boot options. But not when the OS boots up, even if it's Safe Mode.

    Any suggestions, please?

    Hi,

    I have run daily backup of my server using Windows Server Backup. I have choose back up to a volume.

    Currently the size of volume is almost full, only left 750MB. Will it compress the Windows Image Backup file by itself? and will it affect the performance server?

    We are trying to write a script to automate the Restore of the most recent Windows Server Backup from a portable drive?

    First part is to write a script to reload the backup catalog from the portable drive.  What we have so far is:

    $Bt = "\\?\Volume{58895c2e-a4f6-4143-8be0-83c858f516cc}\"
    Restore-WBCatalog -BackupTarget $Bt -Force

    But that doesn't work because it doesn't seem to like to volume label.

    The second part is creating a command to start a WBAdmin restore using the latest latest volume to recover.  This is where I could do with a few clues if anyone has any.

    Thanks,

      Nick

    Hi Guys!

    I've been trying to make this work for over a week now.

    Everything I backup to either a External Drive, NAS share, or Iscsi mounted drive, I get this error:

    the drive cannot find the sector requested 

    I have looked around on tons of forums and the workaround always seems to be to shrink the partitition through disk managment or check drive for errors.

    None of this has been working for me. 

    Looking for anyone that has seen this issue or might have a clue. this is a real PITA

    thanks!

    Hello All-

    I'm facing a big problem relating to data loss. I have a situation where I am left only with a Windows Server Backup to restore my data. Second problem is that the farthest back date I have will not work as the data was already corrupt 5/9, data was fine 5/8. 

    My understanding of Windows Server Backup was that it creates a backup IMAGE like other software, Acronis, Shadow Protect, etc. If that was the case then I should be able to restore the server to 5/9 and still have my Shadow Copies/Previous Versions of the files to restore from the day before. I've tested and this is how other images work for 3rd party software, they are a exact copy of the server at the time the backup is create. In my case the WSB does not appear to contain these. I know for a fact that the VSS versions were there on 5/9, they went back a good month. Before I give up all hope I'm looking for a definitive answer to whether or not these Previous Versions should be there. I've contemplated contacting Microsoft and paying the $300 just to answer this one question. So I thought I would start here first. I've searched quite a bit and it's hard to find good info on how these backups actually work. 

    Any help is very greatly appreciated. 

    Thanks, -Dru

    After learning basic usage and benefits of sysprep utility, I am eager to sysprep my reference Server 2012 R2 image. I have installed AutoCAD 2015 and MATLAB and some other smaller softwares as well as antivirus products, and configured several server roles and features including desktop experience and web server. 

    However, when I capture and apply it, OS preparation ends with an error message showing that windows cannot complete system preparation. Then it suggests I'd better reinstall the system instead.

    i wonder, if sysprep is not applicable on server platform? Or there is other issues? Since I do all of those things under windows PE, I have no way to provide more  information about this one. 

    Anyone can give a suggestion or answer?
