SnapProtect SP9 and OSSV Agent

[ Edited ]


we use SnapProtect with SP8 for backup of local Data on Disk to an secondary Netapp Filer. It works fine. Until SP9 was installed. From now i can´t create any snapshot or baseline copys.

We have some Servers with local Disk that also should be backuped with SnapProtect on my secondary filer. SnapProtect itself works fine with all data on Netapp Primary.

I´m not sure if it is a must have that all data for the OSSV Agent are on NetApp Filers, not on local disk.

After some minutes on status "New volume Creation: Snapshot" the jobs supend with error "Loss of control process CVSnaptool.exe"

Any Ideas ?
