    After the Windows 10 version 1803 upgrade on April 30, 2018, my System Image Backup keeps failing withe two messages. "The backup failed" "The RPC server is unavailable (0x800706BA)".

    Note that the System Image Backup worked before the upgrade. The upgrade completed OK and I have not found any other issues.

    I checked that =1= The RPC (Remote Procedure Call) service in Services is active and running and =2= the DCOM (Distributed COM) is enabled. There used to be a SYSTEM disk when I did the defrag, the defrag does not show the SYSTEM disk in version 1803.

    Is it a bug, or is there a fix or should I try the Image Recovery (that might fail as well).

  • 09/04/18--03:09: Wbadmin backup failing
  • Hi Guys, 

    i was wondering if someone could help. 

    I receive an error message in event viewer saying: 

    "The backup operation that started at (---------------) has failed with following error code '0x80780179' (an error occurred while writing to the backup target). Please review the even details for a solution, and then rerun the backup operations once the issue has resolved' 

    Details 

    ErrorCode 0x80780179, ErrorMessage %%2155348345. 

    The backup did originally work. I have checked that the client hasnt used a different USB port to what they normally use (which they haven't). I have also changed vs shadow copy from manual to automatic and still no luck.

    can any of you provide any possible solutions - this is rather urgent as we need to ensure that a database is backing up. 

    Thank you, 

    Jess

  • 09/04/18--11:59: System crash
  • Hello,

    We had HP Storagework EVA 4400 (SAN) that contained the data for use on 3 servers.   

    Due to "unauthorized" access, the EVA4400 configuration got deleted which caused all the data loss on that storage.

    How could we get the data back or do we have to restore the data back from our Symantec Backup Exec?

    Please help.

    Best regards

    Hi there,

    We have a problem with 1 of our domains, we want to install our backup tool from Acronis with Exchange application. Herefore we need to login as domain admin. This shows us the following error:

    Cannot collect the metadata of Microsoft Exchange Server

    The specified user does not have enough rights to create an application-aware backup.
    TROUBLESHOOTPlease specify the credentials of a user who is a member of the 'Organization Management' role group or disable the application-aware backup of Microsoft Exchange Server.

    We contacted Acronis, they told us; the problem is using the command: WHOAMI /GROUPS does not show any domain groups.. This is why Acronis software thinks our domain admin is not member of the organization management.

    Somehow this does not work on any of the servers in this domain. We have more domains where this command DOES show domain groups.. We can't find anything different in the domain.

    whoami /groups

    Hi all.

    I need some help with the below errors as we have tried taking it up with Veritas, but to no avail.  On Windows Server 2016, using Veritas Backup Exec, the backup will run once after restarting the guest VM's, and restarting the Hyper-V Management Service on the host.  After that the scheduled backups fail.

    We ran the "vssadmin list writers" command with the following results:

    Hi Team,

    We have IBM Tivoli Storage Manager version 6.4 installed and observed large no of errors in backup of File servers . While checking the error logs found "Thumbs. dB" files on which read errors reporting. My File servers are Windows 2012 and i want to prevent creation of such files on server. 

    How do i prevent it? Is there any way i can restrict creation of file from Group Policy? Kindy suggest.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    So I have seen many articles on how to copy one file to multiple computers, but I want to know just the opposite.

    If I was wanting to copy multiple user data stored on local C drive of computers within my AD environment, can I simply move the data to individual users home directories that exist on a NAS?

    Is there some way I can tie in Robocopy to a group of computer devices and run some commands?

    I'm trying to find out if this is a singular process meaning one computer at a time or can I do it all at once.

    TIA

    Hello,

          We have been having an issue for the last week with our Windows Server Backup failing on our Windows Server 2016 Essentials server.  It is failing with the application event ID 517.  The backup operation has failed with the following error code '0x807800AF' (The Volume Shadow Copy Service backup complete operation failed.  The backup backs up the EFI System partition, local disk with all the data, Bare metal recovery, but fails on the System state.  It says the Backup canceled.  System state backup was canceled.

    The error in the windows server backup software is the Volume Shadow Copy Service backup complete operation failed.  A volume shadow copy service component encountered an unexpected error.

    The server has been rebooted and we will get one working backup but the issue returns the following day.

  • 10/02/18--04:23: Windows Image Backup
  • Hi

    I am trying to perform a Windows Image Backup on Windows Server 2008 R2 but the system state backup is failing. I have the log files that detail the reason it is failing but need advice on a resolution.

    Thanks

    We perform full back up of our Windows 2008 R2 server every weekend on alternate locations at two different external hard disk. I am able to mount two vhd( two drives) as virtual disk and shows online but one of the drive shows not initialized when i mount it has read only checked.If I unchecked read only option the drive shows online but when I try to open the the drive I get "Files are corrupted or unreadable" .And also all the three drives are mountable only with read only unchecked.I have the same issue on both of my external disk. Please suggest a solution for this issue and also what would be the best recovery plan?

    Hello,

    I have a Windows Server 2012r2 running ADDS, DHCP, DNS and DFS - during overnight backup, I receive the following errors:

    ID: 510 - ESENT ERROR - request to write to file to an abnormally long time (562 seconds)

    ID 1014 - DNS Client Events - Name resolution timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded

    ID - 1006 - Group Policy - processing of group policy failed - Windows could not authenticate to the Active Directory service

    ID 7011 - Service Control Manager - A timeout (3000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the client manager service

    Also, during this time the server becomes very slow to near unresponsive. Important to note that these errors only produce themselves during the backup operation, and the backup operation does complete successfully. 

    I noticed that some of these strange issues started to appear after we started using DFS - this server replicates files to another server using DFS.

    I've seen and found similar post online and her but so far no one with an answer.

    Windows Server Backup extremely slow while 'compacting the virtual hard disk(s)'
    Compacting virtual hard disks

    Running a Windows 2016 Server that has the hyper v role that I backup using the Windows Backup to backup the server to a local attached USB disk.

    When I firstly create the backup job it takes quite some time because it needs to copy all the data, which is understandable. After that the incremental is done within a hour backing up 3 TB of data and 6 VMs, which is a great result.

    Then after a while the backup disk is filling up and it will take for ever to finish a backup. Every day it will start to do a full and compacting the virtual hard which will take almost the whole day.

    We have been backing up a Windows Sever 2012 R2 using Windows Server Backup

    We have specified Backup with Bare Metal Backup, System State, System Reserved as well as the system disk and application disk.

    This Backup was configured by the Domain Administrator and runs as a scheduled Task by SYSTEM.

    When we recent tested the backup using the Restore to a new Machine, None of the User Accounts Restored. (C:\Users)

    What are we doing wrong?

    One of our clients with a Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials server is suddenly having an issue with the scheduled backups failing yet the manual backups succeed. This has appeared out of the blue and both my colleague and I are unable to determine what might be the cause. The following is the log when it fails...

    .....

    The description for Event ID 5 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.

    The locale specific resource for the desired message is not present

    .....

    Does anyone have any clue what the problem might be and how to go about resolving it. All of the backup drives are new.

    I am now experiencing this on two different installations where Windows Server 2016 is the host operating system on Dell PowerEdge T620 servers with USB 3.0 interfaces running Windows Server backup.

    The machines all host Hyper-V virtual servers.

    I have been backing up using Windows Server 2016 Backup to external 8TB USB 3.0 drives. The FULL backups had been taking only about 4 to 6 hours and the incrementals were running in a matter of an hour or so. 

    Suddenly on two of my different customer installations the Windows Server backup is taking DAYS to run. After about 12 hours one my backups is at 27% of Volume 2 out of 3 volumes.  

    This all seemed to start AFTER installation of KB4457127 but I cannot say for sure.

    I have tried different USB 3.0 external drives, even though the likelihood that two different facilities would suddenly both experience the exact same issue and it be a drive problem seemed unreasonable.

    Anyone have any thoughts? Anyone else experiencing this?

    Is there a difference between

    WBADMIN START BACKUP -allCritical -SystemState

    VS

    WBADMIN SYSTEMSTATEBACKUP

    True or false? Sounds like to me they both perform a Bare Metal Recovery AS well as a system state recovery ( and system state contains users info)

    Also I have WBADMIN START BACKUP as a scheduled task running every saturday 0300hr at drive path D,after the first backup is every successive backup either an incremental or differential backup? or is it a complete re-write of the existing backup in that path? Or an entirely new backup

    I am concerned about drive space.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello guys,

    Since Septembter 13th we have backups failing on one of our 2008 servers. The problem is that, for some reason, the VSS System Writer has disappeared.

    I have tried everything, re-registering the writers, changed permissions on COM Security, etc. None of them worked... Has anyone gone through this before? I also noticed that some updates were installed on the server the same day that the last successful backup happened (Sept 13th), so I am wondering if this was broken by an update...

    Any help will be really appreciated!! Thanks so much in advance for your time!!  :)

    Hi,
    I have taken backup of Windows Server 2008 R2 Domain Controllers (PDC and DC) through SCDPM 2012. Its a bare metal backup which contains image of active directory.
    I want to restore Domain controller DPM backup for test purpose.
    Is there any specific procedure or precaution to follow during the restoration of Domain Controller?
    I have read somewhere that there are two types of restores in Domain Controller, Authoritative and Non-Authoritative restore.
    Can anyone suggest me the right procedure for recovering Domain Controller through Domain Controller through DPM??

    Regards,
    Rohit
