Hello

When i use the command on my exhcange server VSSADMIN LIST WRITERS, I get a responce:
>Waiting for responses.
> These may be delayed if a shadow copy is being prepared.
And nothing ever comes up.

It used to work fine. The only changes were that I recently upgraded to Backup Exec v12.5. Also upgraded my Antivirus/Firewall software on the server.

I have also already tried disabling all AV/Firewall software, applying the Hotfix from Microsoft and registered some DLL files as per the following Microsoft articles:

Please help!

Additionally try the registry keys mentioned in article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/940184. Redo the registration of DLL's as well.

Ok, Fixed it.
I have Virtual Server 2005 installed. Upon disabling that service, I was able to run the command: VSSADMIN LIST WRITERS and it came up fine with all services stabilized.

I Then restarted the Virtual Server service, re-ran the command and it still worked? Not sure why but Im not complaining.
