Change Journal with Dell Equallogic Group VSS
When doing an accelerated backup with the change journal option ticked I get an error message from the san at the end of the backup saying server is trying to talk to the snapshot which no longer exists.
For this to fail I need the Dell EQ hardware VSS enabled for the client. I am only enabling this as I am using the client hit kit (dells name for their software) to create snapshots by flushing memory etc to disk.
So the backup runs, creates a snapshot via vss which uses the dell hit kit to talk to the san directly.
All data is backed up. Netbackup says thanks very much I am done.
San gets the message to delete the snapshot as its no longer required and does so.
Imeadiatly after its deleted it gets an IO request to the snapshot (I am asuming from windows change journal) which sends me an email failure.
Every things works ok its just the error message thats anoying everyday in my inbox.
Both Dell and Symantec are washing hands of it as I am guessing its more of a windows issue in the way both handle change journal.
My question is this, is there a way to tell the change journal not to use VSS or does it have to?
Has anyone else had this issue and found a way other than to disable EQ Group VSS / Change Journal.
