Hi,

I have a windows master server running 2008R2 

and i am backing up the client of os 2008 when it is getting backed up it ends with partial by saying the below error.

WRN - can't open file: C:\Windows\System32\winevt\Logs\Application.evtx (WIN32 3: The system cannot find the path specified. )

WRN - can't open file: C:\Windows\System32\winevt\Logs\Security.evtx (WIN32 3: The system cannot find the path specified. )

likewise other .evtx extension files .

by analysing the the extension and the .evtx files are there in the client correctly but still it shows error pls suggest

What is the NBU version on the client?
W2008 patch/release level?

Windows Event logs should not be backed up as files, but rather as part of Shadow Copy Components.

This should not happen if Windows and NBU patches are up to date.

It took you 7 months to reply????

Can we assume that this is no longer a problem?
Your original post had 'NBU 7.1.x and Earlier' selected.

Apologies for the reply.

 

Actually after upgrading also it gives the same problem and it is decomissioned and its no more..

But for other servers after upgrading also it still remains.

What exactly is specified in Backup Selection?
