VSS Maximum number of snapshots for this volume has been reached
I have the error below on a newly created BE 2012 server (we scrapped the old one, and are now setting up the new one with all new jobs etc):
The machine being backed up is a Windows 2008R2 file server with the BE agent installed. It is running on a VMware host but we are not using the VMWare BE agent.
The BE server is also a 2008R2 server with all latest updates applied.
- Snapshot Technology: Initialization failure on: "\\EUROPA\System?State". Snapshot technology used: Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).
V-79-10000-11234 - VSS Snapshot error. The maximum number of snapshots for this volume has been reached. Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) will not allow any more snapshots.
I have had a look around and can't seem to find too much info on how to fix the problem.\
By the looks of it, the error is happening on most of the drives on the machine.
We also use ShadowProtect on this server, and have done since it's creation with no problems up until now when re-creating the BE jobs - maybe I havent got the job setup correctly?
