SQL netbackup failure SQLVDI.dll not loaded into SQL memory

    Question

  • We have receiving SQLVDI.dll error when we try to take the SQL backup on EMC Networker. We checked the sqlvdi status as suggested in http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/sqlbackupsim . But we have the status in simulator that "VDI dll not loaded into SQL Memory yet" . We register the vdi dll manually after stopping the SQL service. But it doesn't resolve the issue.

    • Server version : Windows server 2003 Standard SP2
    • SQL Version : SQL 2008 Enterprise Edition SP3

    Please help me to fix this issue.

    Thanks

  • Hello,

    Have you tried SQL Server Backup Simulator? It was created to troubleshoot VDI backup/restore issues.

    Hope this helps.
