System-state Backup from DPM on a Windows Server 2008 Standard fails with error code 2155413760


  • Hi Folks ,

    Windows Server Backup on a Server 2008 Standard , running through DPM. The error code is 2155413760 with event id 546 . The backup fails . 

    Troubleshooting Steps Performed :

    • Tried to do a normal windows server back - No luck
    • Checked on the event log , figured out the error code and the bloggers suggest the issue is with the file permisions on the WInSXS folder in Windir
    • MS has file permissions reset recommendations : checked on the file permissions and the file permissions are intact .
    • List vssadmin list writers does not list the System Writer.

    The server is hosted in the remote location and presently running the DC , DHCP and fileserver roles . 

    Any further troubleshooting steps or assistance will be appreciated.
