    Question

  • Hi,

    I am a unable to run windows backup for the volume C or the fullbackup or bare-metal with systemstate after installing windows server 2008 R2 standard edition 64 bit server after installing ADDS and DHCP server roles .I am getting the following errors in event viewer.But it is possible to create backup for  another partition say E drive  it is successfully creating the backup .

    Findings

    1 .Before installing ADDS and DHCP server roles I were able to create all types of backups .

    2. The output of  the vss writer list is for the NTDS as shown below .All other writers are fine.
    Writer name: 'NTDS'

    Errors in event viewer.
    VSS Warning

    the error is likely to reoccur.

    . Changes that the writer made to the writer components while handling the event will not be available to the requester. Check the event log for related events from the application hosting the VSS writer.

  • Please reboot, after test vssadmin list writers

    If any error is coming there, please check if a third part vss solution got installed (like acronis or such) It might be a bad vss writers listed.

    Yes, you can use those steps on both 32bit and 64bit platforms (on WS 2008 and newer versions). At least, that worked for me whenever I had tried.

    Even if it doesn't fix the issue, it will not harm operating system.
