I have been unable to get my newly set up W2K Server and ExSrv 2K3 to backup the Information Store using the Backup uitility. The report shows:
The 'Microsoft Information Store' returned 'Instance not found' from a call to 'HrESEBackupSetup()' additional data '-'The 'Microsoft Information Store' returned 'Functions called in an invalid sequence.' from a call to 'HrESEBackupClose()' additional data '-'
The operation was ended.
I found a MS article related to this, but it referred to when you back up the System Satte at the same time. I am not doing this. I have checked for other instances of ntbackup running but there are nne. I tried disabling the volume shadow copy service but no difference.
The backup WAS working for a while, then I noticed that my daily scheduled backups had stopped.
My the heck can't Microsoft supply products which work properly in such a critical respect?
Can anyone advise?
