Windows Storage Server 2008 backup fail to UEFI based computers

0
0

Hai All

I have got Windows Storage Server 2008 running on a WD Sentinel DX4000. Recently my company bought a couple of new Dell laptops all running windows 8.1 64bit OS. Only three older laptops were left. Now for the fun part...I installed the connectors pointing to the Sentinel on the laptops, and as expected the pc's show on the dashboard of the Storage Server, but all of the backups fail on the newer laptops. I installed the connectors on the older laptops as well and they go through no problem

The only difference between the older laptops and the new ones are the GPT partition drives and laptops running on UEFI, the older laptops, although running the same OS, do not have GPT and UEFI. I looked at the Event Viewer and found three errors to do with the backup: Event 514 pointing to a ClientVSSProblem, Event 8194 pointing to Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error querrying for the VSSWriterCallback interface, hr=0x80070005,Access Denied and the last one is Event 513 CAPI2, Cryptographic Service failed while processing onIdentity() call in the System Writerobject Details: AddLegacyDriverFiles: Unable to back up image of binary Microsoft Link-Layer Discovery Protocol. I did as most articles suggested but with no change. From changing registries to taking ownership of the %windir% and adding the NT AUTHORITY, the NT Service and BUILTIN\Users. No change.

Help is much appreciated before i make a boat anchor out of the WD Sentinel.

Kind regards

Hi,

Could you advise me the Windows backup solution for the Windows server 2008 (not R2).

I have NAS Drive and need to use part of the HDD as a server backup.

I need to configure automated backup to the network share(NAS) using Windows standard utilities, if possible.

Your ideas welcome.

Thanks,

Ilya

Windows Server 2012 R2 Backup - Cannot Restore From Remote Share

0
0

I am having trouble restoring an existing backup using windows server backup. The backup is stored on a network share. 

I goto recovery wizard > a backup stored on another location > remote shared folder > and then I enter my shared folder: 

\\share-pc\SERVERNAME\WindowsImageBackup\SERVERNAME\Backup 2014-12-05 013008

I then get this message:

"The specified remote share does not contain any backups. Provide a path to a remote shared folder that contains backups."

 I have confirmed that all of the following paths fail:

\\share-pc\SERVERNAME\WindowsImageBackup\SERVERNAME\Backup 2014-12-05 013008

\\share-pc\SERVERNAME\WindowsImageBackup\SERVERNAME\

\\share-pc\SERVERNAME\WindowsImageBackup\

\\share-pc\SERVERNAME\

I can ping the machine and mount the shares on the server as well.

Any thoughts?

Server 2012 R2 Backup issues (unresolvable since hours)

0

Hey community,

i`m reading these topics since years. All issues could be resolved so far. But since yesterday i`m really afraid. I think i can`t solve this issue without you specialists.

I´m running a Hyper V (Server 2012 R2 Core) with currently three VM`s on it.
I like to initiate a host based backup with "wbadmin".

The used command ist: wbadmin start backup -backupTarget:B:\ -hyperv:"VMS030"

The VM has three disks: Fast Storage 400gb, Slow Storage 500 GB, Paging on SSD`s 15 gb.
I assigned 30.720 megabytes of RAM to this VM.

The other VM`s are much smaller. The Backup is working on these VM`s without any errors.
Now... what`s special about this VM? The VM is a SBS2011 with Exchange, SQL Server and AD on it.

The wbadmin command fails with

I´m looking for a workaround or a fix since hours on different error-ids. But cannot resolve it.
There WindowsServerBackup-Log tells me this:

Do you guy`s have any clue how i can resolve this?

As i said ... i can backup a few smaller VM`s. Only the "Big one" fails.
I already thought about a disk space issue ... But there is at least 30 % of free space on each disk.

Thank you all!

Host and VMs:  Server 2012 (Fully patched and unfortunatey not R2).

When this occurs the VM becomes unresponsive for a period of time and then this error is generated on host.  The other VM remains responsive w/o error at any point.  No backups or shadow copies should be taking place at this time and I've confirmed as much.  Backups are always successful when they run.  Have a bit of a strange setup here (Not designed by me).  Have two RAID arrays.  One is the C: partition at 275GB w/ 79GB free and the other is 557GB and it is offline and passed through to the VM as the SQL data drive.  This is how it was done and unfortunately how it needs to remain.  I do not get the below error daily but it does happen a few times a month but the time/day is never consistent.  Oddly though the VM isn't always unresponsive (At least the customer doesn't contact me if it is) when this error is generated.  Other day errors are exact except the VolumeShadowCopy number is different (See error below and you'll understand what I mean).  I have a sneaking suspicion that the issues is due to the lack of enough space to create a shadow copy of the VM on Host C: but I don't know why this wouldn't occur every day if that was in fact the issue.

The error I feel is causing the VM to become unresponsive: (Checking  Details|XML view in Event viewer for this error does point to the problematic VM)

The description for Event ID 36 from source volsnap 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:

\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy133
C:

The locale specific resource for the desired message is not present


Any help would be appreciated, the vendor of this POS server doesn't seem to have much insight and I'm left to try to resolve this myself it feels.

Windows 2012 r2 Raid 1 backup and restore to bigger drives

0
0

Hello!

I have HP ProLiant DL320e Gen8 v2 Server and Windows Server 2012 R2. 
Currently I have Raid 1 configured with HP's Dynamic Smart array.

I need more free space to server. Currently there is 2x 1TB hdd's and new ones are 3TB.

I think that I have to:

1. backup current system. (with what?)
2. Remove current HDD's
3. Insert new HDD's
4. Create a new Raid 1 for new HDD's 
5. Restore from backup.

When I try to make backup with Windows Server Backup, I get an error: "Backup of volume C: has failed. The drive cannot find the sector requested.

Any tips for how to do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Windows 2012 R2 Domain Controller unable to backup system state

We recently implement a new Windows 2012 R2 domain controller but have been unable to take a system state backup using Windows Backup.  We get the following error?

There was a failure in updating the backup for deleted items.  Error code 0x8078014D

We have other Windows 2012 R2 domain controllers that we can backup the system state on using Windows Backup without any issues.

Can't access network for Baremetal recovery

I need to perform a bare metal recovery, and restore the backup from "network location". I am using Server 2012R2 for Hyper-V host, and the VM is a Generation 2 VM. I am booting to Windows Server 2012R2 with Update Media, but I can't get any network Connection to the windows Setup. Suggestions?

Backup and Restore image fails 3TB Advanced Format Drive Windows 7-32 SP1

0

Windows native backp fails to create an System Image, or a Complete PC Backup.

This occurs in Windows 7, 64 bit Professional, Windows 7, 32bit Ultimate, Windows Vista Business, 32 bit. It occurs in 6 different computers I've tried. All the backup drives are 3TB. I have tried Seagte USB and Hitachi USB drives. 4 of them. The Windows 7 Ultimate, 32bit machine has SP1. All operating systems are using the current Service Packs, and all of the MS Updates including all of the recommended harware drivers. All of the systems are using the latest BIOS, firmware and OEM drivers as well.

It looks like the issue may be causes by a deficiency in Windows related to the Advanced Format drive spec. All of the computers that qualified had the AF hotfix applied; Advanced Format Drives 512e 4k, Vista and 2008 - KB2470478, Windows 7, and 2008 R2 KB982018

Error messages follow:

The Backup Failed.

Error message: One of the backup files could not be created. (0x8078002A)

The request could not be perfomed because of an I/O error. (0x8007045D)

This deficiency seems to apply across the board to different hardware manufacturers of external hard drives.

From what I have heard, Western Digital may have a format utility that addresses this issue, but only for WD drives.

Help.

Server 2012R2 Windows backup 100% CPU usage and no backup

0
0

Hello!

I have a problem with two VM´s on a HP Proliant ML350p Gen8, that has Windows Server 2012R2 operating system with Hyper-V role installed.

Both VM´s are also 2012R2, one is DC/DNS/FILE/PRINT and the other one is Exchange 2013.

The problem itself is that, when Windows backup (wbengine.exe - Block level backup engine service) inside VM starts, it uses almost maximum CPU resource, so the VM´s CPUs are 100% used. Backup itself is not working, there is no network trafic. Only way to get rid of 100% CPU usage is to restart the server.

When i start backup manually (Backup once - scheduled backup options), it is working and the CPU usage is around 20-30%.

One VM (DC/DNS/FILE/PRINT) has 2x vCPU and Exchange has 4x vCPU.

The problem started suddenly, the backup were performing slowly and failed.

Backups are scheduled on different time. Host level Hyper-V backup of VM´s works without any problem.

The backup location is Synology DS414 NAS and the servers are set up using iSCSI, for connecting separate backup lun´s for each server.

The Hyper-V host and both VM´s are patched up-to-date. Ofcourse i have tried a lot of restarts, looking event log, VSSADMIN - cannot find any errors...

The network setup:

Hyper-V host has a team of two physical adapters, that is set up with a external virtual switch (shared with management operating system) and used by the VM`s normal network trafic.

Hyper-V host itself is using separte physcial network card, for connecting with iSCSI to Synology NAS.

I tried to set up another physical network card on the host and create a new virtual swich, add extra virtual nic to VM`s and use this for iSCSI traffic for Windows backup and it didnt make things better.

I need to find a solution, because i cannot restart the server every night for the backups to work.

Volume shadow copies

Hi,

My server's hard disk partition (compressed NTFS) is of 1.5 TB and it has shared folders on it and Volume Shadow Copies were configured. for more than a year there has not been any problem with the shadow copies. But suddenly it stopped taking the Shadow copies. The data size is now half of the total space. I have freed some space by deleting four oldest shadow copies. still there is no solution. Actual space allocated for shadow copies is 120GB.

Every day, it is scheduled to run at 1:00PM. In the Event Viewer, I have these messages

1. At 1:00:55PM, The Volume Shadow Copy service entered the running state.

2. At 1:00:55PM, The Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider service entered the running state.

3. At 1:05:45PM, The Volume Shadow Copy service entered the stopped state.

4. At 1:05:45PM, The Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider service entered the stopped state.

But if I run the scheduled task, the task is running.

What could be the reason? Please suggest.

URGENT! How to setup VSS and Backups for accidential deleted files for folder redirection?

0
0

Hello,

I just set up folder redirection for clients (My Documents etc.) and it's working, now i was wondering how to do the following things:

1. Create Volume Shadow Copy's on the client folders and how to set this up from the server so the client's speed won't suffer from creating this shadow copy's.

2. Imagine a user removing one of his files accidentilly, is there anything to configure so they can get accidential deleted files back?

So i'd like previous versions of files to be available if they accidentilly change something within a file (Like .doc files) and i'd like the file to be available from somewhere if they accidentilly totally delete it.

Please help me with this, it will be really appreciated,

Thanks in advance.

Replica Inconsistent & Recovery point creation failed

0
0

Hi All,

I am having serious problems with our production DPM server. 

The protected server that is having problems is a physical Domain Controller (DC1) with SCVMM installed (so SQL is also installed on it). Recently DPM has failed to create recovery points, and constantly reports the replica is inconsistent on 3 SQL Data and the VMM Backup Component. (VMM Express Writer).

I have been trying to troubleshoot this for a number of days now and its not been successful.

DPM Typically reports the following errors -:

The VSS application writer or the VSS provider is in a bad state. Either it was already in a bad state or it entered a bad state during the current operation. (ID 30111 Details: VssError:A writer did not respond to a GatherWriterStatus call.  The writer may either have terminatedor it may be stuck.  Check the System and Application event logs for more information.(0x80042319))


The target server DC1 logs error messages like the following.

The COM+ Event System failed to fire the PostSnapshot method on event class {FAF53CC4-BD73-4E36-83F1-2B23F46E513E} for publisher  and subscriber . The display name of the subscription is "{75470F40-3413-4F68-BDBB-0443A6277674}". The HRESULT was 80042318.

The COM+ Event System failed to fire the RequestWriterInfo method on event class {FAF53CC4-BD73-4E36-83F1-2B23F46E513E} for publisher  and subscriber . The display name of the subscription is "{75470F40-3413-4F68-BDBB-0443A6277674}". The HRESULT was 80042318.

An unhandled exception was encountered while processing a VSS writer event callback method. The VSS writer infrastructure is in an unstable state. Restart the service or application that hosts the writer.

I have tried quite a few things from google and technet and peoples blogs etc to no success, so rather than speculate further or pollute the thought process anymore  - I think a best approach to clear my mind and get other people thoughts and possible solutions and guidance - Any help in this matter is most welcome.

Kind Regards
