Warnings when performing backup with BackupExec 2012
I need your help in order to understand some exceptions I'm having on my database backups daily.
My backup process consists on performing a snapshot of the lun which holds the database files. After that, I have a process the is called when the backup starts, using the pre and post commands.
The pre command mounts the SnapedShot LUN in the server, backs up to tape, and the post command unmounts the LUN.
The whole process works, I even tried restoring the database into another DBMS and it is OK. However, since we use notifications and some notifications turn into alerts, it is generating alerts every night.
The job completes with the following description:
Completed status: Completed with exceptions
- Snapshot Technology: Initialization failure on: "\\SRV-BACKUP.MyDomain.com\D:". Snapshot technology used: Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS). V-79-10000-11219 - VSS Snapshot error. The volume or snapped volume may not be available or may not exist. Check the configuration of the snapshot technology, and then run the job again.
V-79-10000-11219 - VSS Snapshot error. The volume or snapped volume may not be available or may not exist. Check the configuration of the snapshot technology, and then run the job again.
The server itself doesn't have VSS running, or configured. This exception happens on the post command phase. The script is a simple lun unmap and destroy of the mount.
