Problems with full VSS backup in BESR 2010

Created: 18 Mar 2013 | 5 comments

Hi, 

Hoping I can get some assistance. Windows 2008 server running MS Exchange 2010 backups are configured to create independent recovery point 

 

in the log file each morning is the following 

 

 

Info 67B70171: VSS Writer ASR Writer failed.Check the application event log for writer specific error.
Details: 
Source: Backup Exec System Recovery
 
The event log then produces

  </EventData>
</Event>
 
The backup however shows as complete 
 
 
vssadmin list writers shows no writers in the error state 
 
Using windows backup there are no issues.
 
 
Does anyone have any thoughts ?
 
Thanks in advance, 
 
Al

Can you open a support case for that ?

I was hoping to get some guidance before going down the route of handing over the companies cash to open a case :(

Sorry I have no Exchange, but maybe you can give a reboot a try ? It helped with other VSS errors in our environment.

Is it SSr 2011 / SSR 2013?

try recommendations on : http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH200584

After a successfully reported Symantec System Recovery (SSR) 2013 backup the Windows Event message below occurs and the Exchange transaction logs were not purged / truncated.
