Event IDs VSS 8193, VSS 12291 and 529

I have a backup program that uses VSS, I get these errors. The last one is from the scheduler in windows that launches the program. It says bad username or password but the job does run.

I have a client running Windows 2003 The new client was installed fresh vs upgraded.

There are two backup jobs that run from this client each night. One is a fastbit backup of tyhe file system and a second backup job that is an Exchange Server backup.

There are days when the server says there is nothing to backup and I know that isn''t the case.

Other than backups not containing the data I''m expecting I have four items in the event viewer I''m not having any luck coming up with any info on.

They are

VSS ID # 8193
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine IMultiInterfaceEventControl::GetSubscriptions. hr = 0x800401fd.

VSS ID # 12291
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Error on creating/using the COM+ Writers publisher interface: BackupShutdown [0x8000ffff].


EventSystem ID # 4609

The COM+ Event System detected a bad return code during its internal processing. HRESULT was 80070057 from line 64 of d:\nt\com\complus\src\events\tier1\subscription.cpp. Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services to report this error.

Securtiy Event ID # 529
Logon Failure:
  Reason: Unknown user name or bad password
  User Name: Administrator
  Domain: SOUNDVIEWCAP
  Logon Type: 4
  Logon Process: Advapi
  Authentication Package: Negotiate
  Workstation Name: SERVER1
  Caller User Name: SERVER1$
  Caller Domain: SOUNDVIEWCAP
  Caller Logon ID: (0x0,0x3E7)
  Caller Process ID: 936
  Transited Services: -
  Source Network Address: -

While this last event seems self explanatory. I''ve checked the account and password and it''s worth noting that the Account/password errors happen when the back up is taking place.

The backup scheduler had created a task in the Task Manager for each backup schedule. When I changed the schedule the in the backup program .It created a new task and left the old task in the Task Manager. Deleting these old events fixed the problem.

Do you have SP2 installed?  It includes some important fixes for VSS.

Yes SP 2 has been installed since the server was first put in place.

try re-applying it.  I had a client with similar issues and just re-applying SP2 fixed them all.

I wasn't able to get permission to install the Service Pack until the 6th, I received no errors the following day. However on the 8th all of the errors returned. THis puts me back to square one.
