Backup fails with errors
Created: 05 Mar 2013 | 8 comments
I've setup our new BE server and there are a few hiccups.
Right now, my weekday incremental is failing with the following errors on two seperate days (jobs)
-The System State resource is not responding. Backup set canceled.
A communications failure has occurred with a System State resource.
-AOFO: Initialization failure on: "System?State". Advanced Open File Option used: Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).
The network connection to the Backup Exec Remote Agent has been lost. Check for network errors.
I just listed all the vss writers for the failing server and they are all stable with no errors right now.
This is a server that has had issues that past few weeks and BSOD every now and then, so it will reboot randomly.
This is our Exchange server so my guess is that either it's trying to access files in use or the server has blue screened and cannot communicate.
Why would it effect System State though? Unless maybe VSS writers fail on the Exchange server and since VSS is the system state structure, BE cannot access it?
