0xe000032d Consistency check of the snapshot for the Microsoft Exchange transaction log has failed
I just wanted to comment on this error: "0xe000032d - The consistency check of the snapshot for the Microsoft Exchange transaction log has failed." I recently started getting while backing up Exchange 2007. Symantec has the following document on this error: http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/285294.htm.
While that document may be valid in general, there is also a very new bug in Exchange 2007 SP1 Rollup 4 (Released 9/9/2008 under KB 952580, this has already been pulled from the Microsoft site for causing several bugs) which is also causing this to occur. My Backup Exec backups not only started to fail with the error above, but I realized that it was Microsoft-related because even the VSS (Volume Storage Service) was having trouble and giving me the following error: Event ID: 305 One or more errors were detected while validating the transaction log files in 'c:\random_database_name\' with a base name of 'E00'. Transaction log file validation failed with error code -1811 (0xfffff8ed).
This and other similar Microsoft error messages are covered in the following blog entries by one of the Microsoft Exchange 2007 engineers: http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2008/09/11/449787.aspx.
I will post the solution as given in the above blog in case it ever disappears, although more information is given in blog, including screen shots, and a forum discussion, so it is still worth a read.
The solution is:
1) Uninstall the rollup from "View Installed Updates" in Windows Server 2008 or "Add/Remove programs" in Windows Server 2003.
2)If the server also has the CAS role, open the web.config file located at <Exchange Install folder>\Client Access\exchweb\ews using an editor like Notepad.exe.
3) Replace all instances of %ExchangeInstallDir% with the actual path of the Exchange installation folder. E.g. If you have installed Exchange in D:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server replace %ExchangeInstallDir% with D:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\.
Here is a line in the web.config file.
<codeBase version="0.0.0.0" href="file:///%ExchangeInstallDir%bin\Microsoft.Exchange.Common.IL.dll"/>
<codeBase version="0.0.0.0" href="file:///D:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\bin\Microsoft.Exchange.Common.IL.dll"/>
