VSS Errors Event ID 12302 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a couple of virtual machines on our Windows 2008 Standard server. On one of the virtual machines (a Windows 2003 server) that we are trying to backup, we are getting some errors in the Application Event log.

    Volume Shadow Copy Service error: An internal inconsistency was detected in trying to contact shadow copy service writers. Please check to see that the Event service and Volume Shadow Copy Service are operating properly.

    From an elevated command prompt, I ran the "vssadmin list writers" which returned no entries. I have confirmed that the VSS and Event service is running as a service.

    Has anyone ran across this problem before and a fix? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thx.
