SnapManager for SQL Backup Fails with 0x80004005

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

SMSQL had been running without problems on a server until yesterday when it started failing with 0x80004005. I cannot seem to discover what is causing the failure. I have tried restarting the server, running Configuration of SMSQL and even recreating the backup job but the same error keeps occuring. Below is from the backup log.

Re: SnapManager for SQL Backup Fails with 0x80004005

Just ran into the same issue. Did you ever get this one solved?

Re: SnapManager for SQL Backup Fails with 0x80004005

I did find a solution. I ended opening a ticket with support. During their prelimiary questions for discovery of this issue, they asked if I was able to see the snapshots in SnapDrive. When I went to SnapDrive I was able to see the snapshots but I also saw something else. One of the Snapshots in Snapdrive had a status of random numbers followed by "deleting" (####deleting). So I tried to go through the SnapManager for SQL MMC and "Delete Backups" however when I would even use the "Delete Preview" option it was throwing an error. I could only assuming that the SnapShot with the ####deleting status was casuing the problem. Since this backup should have been dropped anyways, I went ahead and deleted it using SnapDrive. 

 

I then kicked off the backup and it completed successfully.

 

I am guessing that at some point after 9/27, that something happened during our backup that prevented the 9/27 backup from being deleted. Each time we ran the backup, when trying to delete previous backups it would fail since this entry was stuck in a deleting state.

 

I didn't take a "before" screenshot of SnapDrive but I did attach an editted screenshot that shows what it looked like in Snapdrive.
