I am doing backup of 36 + 36 logs and database luns. I have opened case with support team since last 1 week and still have not heared word from them.

I have 9 VSS writers available with Ok status and snapmanger is using MS exchange writer for its operation.

Any insight will to this issue will be much Appriciated.

Have you checked Exchange related event logs (such as MSExchangeIS, type Exchange VSS Writer) and SDW related event logs? Normally those event logs could tell you what the issue is.

Thanks,

hello Qing

i am unable to relate the issue with the event logs, can u specify the which events are most generated and i need to monotor,

since i am unable t perforn the ful clean backups.

qzhang

You will need to check the error and warning event log entries in application event log during the period of the backup. For example, in your original post, check the error and warning events from 09:09:28.458 to 09:19:29.427.

We are not monitoring events there, but check the events after the backup failed to figure out the root cause of the problem. The event you are looking for MAY look like this:

Hello Harpreet,

Is there any other applications leveraging VSS running on the problematic server?

Regards,

Niyaz

harpreetsingh

Hello Niyaz,

No other application uses the VSS, this server is purely exchange server with SME and SD installed with Exchange 2007 on windows 2003 x64

Regards,

Harpreet

niyaz

Harpreet,

Could you please try restarting "Volume Shadow Copy" service.

Regards,

Niyaz

harpreetsingh

Hello Niyaz,

Volume Shadow copy server is manual type in the server.

howeveri have restarted the service couple of times before each backup. But the backup is againg failed.

What state are the VSS writers currently in?

vssadmin list writers

Slightly different error to the one you're seeing, but this bug recommends only backing up 10 SGs at a time.

http://support.netapp.com/NOW/cgi-bin/bol?Type=Detail&Display=380995

Also see: https://kb.netapp.com/support/index?page=content&id=1010785

I've also seen vss errors resolved by re-installed SnapDrive.

Cheers,

Graeme

Hello,

we have 7 exchange server in our envorinonment,  Each exchange server has 36 Exchange database.Only i am facing the issue only on the single exchange server, and I have created the schedules on using the 6 backup schedules with 6DB in each backup scheduled, still i am getting the same Error. Also as part of troubleshooting i have reinstalled the SD two times. the current status of all the writers are Stable.
