Windows Event ID 34113 Unable to create a snapshot of virtual machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running backup exec on a Windows 2008 R2, 64 bit server, and my backup jobs are continually failing due to a problem with the VSS service on the server.  It should also be noted that the vss system writer is continually failing on this server.  I have found reference to a hotfix for this problem, but have been unable to find it to download and install.  Can anyone tell me what I need to do to fix the volume shadow copy services on this server?

  • Hi,


    You may try to update to Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 and check the result. All the previous released Windows Updates and hotfixes are included in Service Pack 1 for Windows Server 2008 R2. For more information, please refer to the following link:

    If the issue persists, please let me know the hotfix KB number that you cannot download. I will check it for you.
