DPM 2012 r2 - Exchange 2013 Backup (DAG) - Error 30111 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have dpm 2012 r2 that backup exchange 2013 servers, (4 servers), in DAG configuration.

    I have protection group that backup few data bases that in server number 3.

    All DB backups  are OK in this server except one, all the time I get "error ID:30111" "The VSS application writer or the VSS provider is in a bad state. Either it was already in a bad state or it entered a bad state during the current operation"

    when i try to run consistency check it failed after few seconds.

    I can't find the problem. if the VSS was not OK in this server, all DB backups were failed, but only one is failed.

    there is nothing that related to this error in Microsoft event viewer.

    need help with this issue.

  • Hi Lior,

    A few things to try/check:

    • If you move the database to another server, does the backup work then?
    • Do you have enough free space on the volume where the database files are?
    • Have you tried to run a database integrity check?

  • Hi, I solved restarting MsExchangeRepl service in the DAG server.
