Hi,

I am unable to backup DDB because of VSS error.

The ddb is located on d: . From the OS I can do manual snapshot using ‘vssadmin create shadow /for=d:

I’ve already tried with additional setting ‘nUseVSSSoftwareProvider’.

Regards,

Lukasz

Hi @Lukasz A ,

Can you check the Microsoft Events why it is not working?

You should see some error messages/code and can check on Microsoft web site.

Also, maybe it is working manually when there is little or nothing running on that MA and failing when the MA is really busy?

Have you tried to reboot the MA?

Best Regards,

Sebastien

Hi,

I did snapshot from OS side then deleted the shadow copy and then started ddb backup immediately.
