invoke-NaVssBackup fails on windows2012

Hello,

we use dataontap powershell toolkit an use invoke-NaVssBackup successfully on windows 2008R2.

If we try on windows 2012 vss does not work:

PS C:\Windows\system32> Invoke-NaVssBackup -Volume E:

WARNUNG: Volume E: not added to snapshot set.  Error System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x80042308): Ausnahme

von HRESULT: 0x80042308

I already used dcomcnfg  to modify com-security because we had 8194 vss errors in eventlog.

Eventlog errors are gone but invoke-navssbakup still does not work.

Re: invoke-NaVssBackup fails on windows2012

The result 0x80042308 usually indicates the volume cannot be found.  Try with a trailing '\' on the volume parameter:

Invoke-NaVssBackup -Volume E:\

Re: invoke-NaVssBackup fails on windows2012

Right! The trailing backslash is important. But does not solve the problem. Here is what I get on server 2012:

PS C:\Windows\system32> Invoke-NaVssBackup -Volume E:\ -Verbose

AUSFÜHRLICH: Backup type: FULL.

I run into the same error-message when I call

PS C:\Windows\system32> Get-NaVssWriter -Verbose

   dows.GetNaVssWriter

but get-navssprovider works.

I think there is something wrong with Component Services configuration or access rights.
