Hardware VSS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a DPM 2012 SP1 server backing up VMs from a 2008R2 host.  I have a Dell PS4100 SAN.  Latest HIT and Microsoft ISCI client 3.3 on the host.

    Backups fail and i get:

    Starting synchronization on \Backup Using Child Partition Snapshot\server failed:
    Error 30290: Failure occurred while adding one or more of the volumes involved in backup operation to snapshot set. Please check the event log on Hxxx.yyy.zzz  to troubleshoot the issue.
    Error details: Internal error code: 0x809909E2
    Recommended action: Check recent records from the VolSnap source in the Application Event Log to find out why the problem occurred.

    I can force them to use software VSS and i can get a backup. It looks like its trying to use the Windows ISCI target hardware provider and error on lack of permissions.  Why doesn't it use the Dell HW provider.

    Dell says its a Microsoft issue.  I'm no so sure.  Anyone have a lot of knowledge in this area?

    Not sure what else to try.

  • Hi,

    The symptom matches this, try removing the Windows iscsi target hardware provider software on the Windows 2008 R2 host.
