Backup Exec - Failure occurred quering the Writer status
Posted on 2006-07-21
I have been battling this for quite some time now.
I have a server that is acting as my backup server. It backs up 3 things seperately while I am troubleshooting this issue.
1st Job backs up my SQL databases - 300gigs - On a seperate server - Works flawlessly.
2nd Job backs up my Exchange mailboxes - 19gigs - Works great, few exceptions, but are always junk mail related.
3rd Job backs up all of my data on my file server - 400 gigs - On same server as 1st job - Craps out every time gives the following error message. I just cannot seem to get around it. Anyone have any experience with this same kind of issue?
OFO: Initialization failure on: "\\ServerName\Shadow?Copy?Components". Advanced Open File Option used: Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).
OFO: Snapshot error (0xfffffed1): A failure occurred querying the Writer status.
