I've got a strange situation.
When I run:
on a WFE - the SharePoint 2010 VSS Writer Service gets disabled!
I ran the command from an elevated CMD. The account used is the FarmAdmin Account that runs the farm Services.
The registry key: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VSS\VssAccessControl
Domain\spfarmadmin is set to 0
When I run "stsadm.exe -o registerwsswriter" the SharePoint VSS Writer Service is set to automatically start and is running. Also the registry value is set to 1.
With this configuration I am able to protect SharePoint in DPM - but Single Item Recovery is not working.
DPM shows the error: Backup metadata enumeraton failed
DPM: 2012 R2 UR2 on Windows Server 2012 R2 with local SQL 2012 SP1
SharePoint: SharePoint 2010 on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1
SQL: SQL Server 2008 Cluster on Windows Server 2003 x64 SP2
do you have more than one FE Server?
If yes, is the SharePoint 2010 VSS Writer Service runing on the other FE servers, too?
That was a Problem at our site - we had to unregister the writer on the other FE Servers.
