SnapManager for SQL Backup Fails with 0x80004005

Lee-KineticCU

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.

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

Lee-KineticCU

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.
