Writers keep failing
On the server I have BE 2012 SP2 loaded the backup of itself keeps failing.
I keep getting VSS snapshot unexpected provider errors.
During the backup the writers mentioned below are running fine. After a reboot they are running fine again.
And two of the writers stop and give a  timeout error.
The WMI and System writers.
Symantec says it is a Windows problem?
I found one guy who reinstalled the agent and it fixed it but this is the BE server itself. I do not see the agent in the add remove programs. So assuming it does not need to be installed on the server with the BE software on it?
