OSSV backup failed with error VSS_E_UNEXPECTED_PROVIDER_ERROR'

[ Edited ]

Greetings

I am facing an issue with OSSV backup update from protection manger. All drives incremental backups are failing with error vss providers error. VSS writers are in stable state and I am able to create manual shadows copies. but shadows copies creation called by ossv agent is getting failed. Backup runs fine after creating manual shadow copies but auto scheduled backups are failing. After running a trace file I am getting below error.

Re: OSSV backup failed with error VSS_E_UNEXPECTED_PROVIDER_ERROR'

Did you ever get a response to this issue? Outside the forum perhaps? We are having the same issue now. We see the VSS fail and it is followed by a failure to pull the snapshot.

OSSV backup is running but None of file content anything each file 0kb in size in backup

We have installed OSSV on Host and taking backup through snapvault technology however the issue is that the backup which available at Storage doesn’t content anything (0kb size of file in each backup for file particuler). Also there is slow data transferring between relationship. We are using NDMP backup and taking these storage data on TAPE but unfortunately on TAPE also the size of file is 0kb. 

We have got incident and user requested for file restore but there is backup which available content 0kb file.

FAS 30170 filer

Ontap- 7.3.5 SP1

Windows Host (OSSV installed and running fine) Server 2003 R2 SP2

Snapvault relationship is configured and schedule

NDMP backup configured for TAP

If someone can help us in that....Man Sad
