I was getting several VSS failures so ran a batch file to repair VSS and rebooted.
net stop "System Event Notification Service"
net stop "Background Intelligent Transfer Service"
net stop "COM+ Event System"
net stop "Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider"
net stop "Volume Shadow Copy"
cd /d %windir%\system32
net stop vss
net stop swprv
regsvr32 /i swprv.DLL
net start "COM+ Event System"
:End Batch File:
I had removed the /s from recommended commands so I could see any failues and got the following failures:
rasqec.dll failed to load
rpcrt4.dll failed to load
shsvcs.dll failed to load
swprv.dll failed to load with error 0x80070715
winhttp.dll failed to load
After rebooting, vssadmin list writers is showing all stable except 'FRSM Writer' which is failed with last error: Insconsistent shadow copy. I have looked online but have not found any information to assist with fixing this problem.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
It is now showing stable. I really did not expect that to make a difference since I was having the problem after a reboot. Do you have any idea why it was in a failed state or what I can do to prevent this error?
Not marking as answer yet since it seems underlying problem may remain.
Checked today and multiple writers are again failing which points to a bigger underlying problem. All that failed have last error: inconsistent shadow copy. The following writers are now in a failed state:
'Dhcp Jet Writer'
I know I can get them back in a stable stable with restarting services but the fact that they keep failing is troubling.
