Resolving event 12290

    Question

  • We've got this Server 2003 box and this event:

    Event ID 12290: Volume Shadow Copy Service warning: GetVolumeNameForVolumeMountPointW( '\\?\Volume{3b1f0cba-9de6-4987-b04a-47149de4d2b3}\'): 0x00000003. hr = 0x00000000.

     

    When I list the volumes on that machine, I don't see the guid so I'm not sure where VSS is getting it from?  Any thoughts on how I might eliminate this event?

     

    Thanks

  • Hi,

     

    To diagnose the Volume Shadow Copy service writer problem, you can run the vssadmin command as the following steps:

     

    1. Click Start, and then click Run, type cmd to start a CMD prompt line.

    2. Type vssadmin list writers.

     

    This command lists the Volume Shadow Copy service writers and the current state of each writer, you can paste the output here.

     

     

    Best Regards,

    Vincent Hu

  • Hi,

     

    From the output from vssadmin list writers, there is no errors. So you may ignore this event if you didn’t get any issue.

     

     

    Best Regards,
