We have the Dell autosnapshot manager installed (version 4) on our two Exchange 2010 SP2 mailbox servers that are configured in a DAG as well as the backup exec server. I have downloaded and installed a trial of the Advanced Disk Based Backup Option. I re-pushed the remote agent to the mailbox servers.
The backup server is connected to the SAN via ISCSI and the Exchange servers are as well, each database has it's own volume and I see the VSS volume is mounted on the mailbox servers and the backup server. I'm able to snapshot the volumes using the Dell AutoSnapshot manager but backups fail using the ADBO with the following errors
