Event ID:8230 VSS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    SBS 2011 Premium Server.

    I am getting the VSS 8230 error on a daily basis. I followed the article on the MS website that details creating a new security group and editing the registry, did this and the events stopped....for 24 hours! When I go back in to the registry it has recreated the spfarm account so the error returns.

    Does anyone know or could point me towards a permanent fix for this? I understand it doesn't really have any negative effect but I don't like looking at the event logs and seeing errors or warnings as I don't want any genuine issues being lost or masked by ones deemed non harmful.

  • Hi,

    Event ID 8230 is an Warning, instead of Error. The warning occurs because the Sharepoint VSS writer and search services run under the context of a domain user account.

    As KB 2483007 mentioned that you can ignore this warning. As warnings don't affect the operation of VSS:

    Have you enabled/configured SharePoint services on SBS server? 

    If not, you may try to remove the account from the following registry entry and restart the server to check the result:

    Note: remember to back up the registry before any change.

    Best Regards,
    Eve Wang
