  • 11/09/18--05:08: VM not backed up
  • Good morning,

    I have a host on Hyper-V on Windows 2016 STD with different vm with Windows 2016 STD. Of one of these (all of generation 2), it is neither possible to backup with Windows Server Backup with the machine turned on nor to create snapshots from the Hyper-V console.

    The virtual machine in question contains an SQL database that I can not reinstall as it is in production.
    The virtual machine has been completely restored from a backup.

    I have done several tests:

    1- backup with WBS from inside the machine and it works

    2- backup from the host: it does not work only on that VM.

    3- snapshot: the percentage reaches 9% and then fails to continue and merge and retry the error "Checkpoint operation failed. 'Name-server' could not initiate at checkpoint operation.

    4- logs report as below.

    Thanks for the answers

    I am using Server Essentials on a 2012R2 server.  This is a single server network.  Backup services were up and running for a couple of years, but suddenly they aren't functioning.  I can launch the backup using a script and task scheduler, but using server essentials I can't get it to finish using the setup action.  When I launch the setup wizard from the link in the server essentials dashboard the following is returned.

    "Cannot setup server backup"

    "Make sure that all backup services are running, and then try again.  If the problem exists, review the system alerts for related information."

    Using services.msc I can see the backup service running.  VSS service was set to manual so I started it manually and reran the wizard and received the same error message.  

    Are there other services  I should check?  

    I looked in the event viewer but don't see any errors related to backup services.  I do see that server essentials had unexpectedly terminated.  When I came into today to work on this I noticed that server essential service was not running, so I started it.  

    What else can I check or do?

    I shutdown and restarted the server.  On the restart the windows server essential management service terminated unexpectedly.  But from the event viewer (is there a better place to look for specifics on the error?) I can't tell why.  Is that keeping the backup server setup wizard from starting?

    I am in need of KB2781272 for my Windows Home Server 2011 but all links to its existance are no longer valid. I understand that support for this product stopped in April of 2016 but I am only looking for a hotfix file that, I would assume, still exists someplace. I am not looking for support, just the hotfix. Does anyone know where I can find it? Microsoft support has taken the attitude that its a dead product and will not seem to help. Not sure why there is no archive of old hotfixes someplace. Anyone have any ideas where I might be able to get this hotfix?

    Thanks.

    Hi 

    I have a Windows Server 2016 Core hyper-V cluster with 3 Nodes, and a Windows Server 2016 GUI Mgmt Server.

    I can mange all roles of each nodes with the mgmt Server without any problem except the Windows Server Backup. If I want to run from the MGMT Server the "Backup schedule" or "Backup now" assistant on a cluster node I get the error "The parameter is incorrect". 

    I do it like this:

    1. MMC on MGMT Server

    2. Add/Remove Snapin

    3. Select Windows Server Backup

    4. Choose the option "An other computer" and put the name of a cluster node. 

    5. Right click on "Local Backup" and "Backup schedule"

    The crazy thing is if I stop the "Cluster service" on the target node, the "Backup schedule" assistant runs without any error. 

    Has anybody any idea?

  • 11/24/18--21:48: Different Volume GUID's
  • Hi

    I am running a script to map a cluster shared volume to a server and take backup of that volume. But each time volume is mapped i am getting a different volume GUID for access path addition. This is creating a problem in mounting the data to a folder form which i am planning to do a Netvault file system backup. I would like to hear out some sggestion for this.

    Thanks in advance

    I've got an issue and don't know how to solve

    1- I had a Hyper V installed on windows server 2012 r2
    2- I've installed and configured file server and configured windows server
    3- I've configured backups by windows server backup to take backup from the needed files on a VHD disk
    4- Hyper V server went down and I couldn't find all the files and folders on the virtual disks after attaching the old virtual disks
    5- I was able to attach the backup VHD partition to restore the backup as pint no# 3
    6- after mounting the VHD the partition say it's unallocated and need to be formatted

    So please could someone help me with this issue :(

    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).

    I have a Windows 2008 R2 server named Server that runs a backup each night to an encrypted USB drive attached to the server. I shared the drive on the server as shown below and configured Windows Server Backup to backup to the local shared folder.

    • \\Server\Backup

    Everything worked well for several months with the backup speeds being about 1 GB/min (15 to 20 MB/s). At the beginning of this week, I noticed that the backup speeds reduced to 1 to 2 MB/s which resulted in the backup not completing before the encrypted disk was automatically dismounted.

    After much research and testing, I believe that I have narrowed down the cause of the issue to an issue writing data to the local UNC path of \\Server\Backup as shown by comparing the following tests.

    Test 1

    • c:> copy largefile h:\

    The above DOS command copies the file to the encrypted drive mounted at h:\ quickly.

    Test 2

    • c:> copy largefile \\Server\Backup

    The above DOS command copies the data to the same location but was 33x slower that the Test 1 DOS command.

    I duplicated the above results using the xcopy command instead of the copy command but could not duplicate the above results on my Windows 7 computer. On my Windows 7 computer, the two versions of the copy performed the same.

    The following are some additional observations:

    • If I change the backup location to an external UNC like \\Sever2\Backup, everything works well.
    • After repeatedly running Windows Server Backup after make changes such as restarting the server and tweaking the NIC parameters, the backup will all of a sudden start backing up at the normal speed but this will only last for about an hour before it reduces back to the slow backup speed.

    Hello,

    I have a test server which is exhibiting some strange behavior with Windows Server Backup.  Perhaps I am just performing the backup incorrectly and need to use another method.  It is a Hyper-V server running Windows Server 2012 R2 with guest VM's running a domain controller (2012 R2), Exchange 2013, SQL Server 2017, and SharePoint 2019.  I created a backup job on the Hyper-V server that backs up the necessary system volumes/partitions, and also includes the VM's within Hyper-V.  When checking the progress after the backup is complete the data transferred shows "xx.xx of xx.xx" as expected for everything except for the SharePoint VM.  That one shows 374.00MB of 32.99GB.  The total data transferred shows 99.10GB.  When I add up all of the VM's -except- for SharePoint it adds up to 98.73GB, including SharePoint adds up to 99.10GB.  While it was backing up SharePoint it counted up past 374MB, but from what the results show at the end it appears the SharePoint VM has not been backed up properly.

    Should the backup be performed in some other way?  Perhaps running Windows Server Backup directly from the guest OS instead of from the host Hyper-V OS?

    On a related note, I am curious if there would be any issue with inconsistencies of the state of the data performing the backup in this manner?  The SQL Server is also running as a VM.  Is it critical for the backup of the SQL Server and SharePoint server be done at the same time so there is no mis-match of configuration or other data between the VM's?

    Hi all,

    I have a server running server 2012 r2 with the essentials role installed. There are several clients attached to the domain which are configure to regularly backup to the essentials server (on a 5TB ReFS volume) and the server also hosts redirected folders for the clients along with a fairly large (for a home anyway) collection of music and photos etc all stored on ReFS formatted volumes.

    I have purchased a couple of 5TB external drives which I intend to use as additional backup drives which I will rotate so that there is always one in a location away from the house.

    The issue I have is with configuring backups onto the external drives. As I see it I have two issues - ReFS drives do not allow incremental backups and I cannot configure a subset of client backups to be backed up onto the external drives. This means that the external drives will run out of space after a very small set of backups which limits their usefulness.

    Any suggestions on how to best configure this sort of backup?

    This error message isn't that uncommon but what makes this issue unique is that Edge will say its a DNS issue, however google chrome, IE, firefox all works. Also if I switch to WIFI or MobileLTE Edge will work. And here is another kicker, it only happens in the morning after it has been either on a business trip and at home and when i get into the office this error message will last about 10-15 minutes before it starts working again.

    I've tried ipconfig /flushdns

    i've tried going to edge and about:flags; CTL+Shift+D; disable "Enable TCP Fast Open"

    Any ideas?

    Hello everyone,

    For years I've been telling my client that he needs to invest in a better backup solution other than Windows Server Backup.  This weekend I found out why, and it was something I did not know beforehand.  Upon his server crashing, he had a WD backup drive (an older one) that we used to perform weekly backups to that had basically all of the files and folders on his server backed up to.  He uses a sophisticated tax program, as he is an accountant.  Inside one of the folders of this program where his tax data for all of his clients is stored, there were a few hundred folders.  Well, I went to restore the main folder of this program which had the few hundred subdirectories under it.  Upon starting the restoration, it came up with a message/error that stated something to the effect that this folder has more than 1000 files/folders under it and that Windows Server Backup was limited to restoring 1000 files/folders at a time and nothing more.  The question I have is, am i really going to have to restore this data folder by folder?  Is there any way around this with the backup that we have here?  It is scary to think that I may have to literally go through the 10 step restore wizard in Windows Server Backup for 100's of folders and do each restoration individually.  Also, why would Microsoft create a backup solution for a server that has this limitation??
