System restore fails

Created: 24 Jan 2013 | 4 comments

When attempting to do  system restore of a server (a bes server), i receive the following errors after a few minutes: 'A failure occured writing an object. Error writing file data. final error 0xe000fee1. 2 items wer skipped'. I have not found information so far that is sufficient for my particular situation. I should say I am new to this forum, but any help wil be appreciated.

so the error starts with: Restore-\\<server fqdn>\system?state\\<server fqdn>\system?state

i did check if teh backup exec vss provider was started and it was not. Maybe it has something to do with that?

Hi,

That might be it...start it up and run the backup again. VSS needs to be called by BE so this could be the problem

Thanks!

Thanks Craig,

But i cannot start the service. the error i get is: '1053:The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion'.

Hi,

 

Open a command prompt and type: vssadmin list writers.

Any writers not stable and running are in error. A restart of the server normally fixes this.

 

Thanks!
