Backup Exec 11d question
Posted on 2009-03-30
I am running Symantec Backup Exec 11d and have been running into a few errors. I have a few different servers rolled into one job (backing up all files, no databases). Sometimes, not all the time, I will get a notification saying the job failed. When I check the log, it tells me a particular section cannot be backed up and the specific error report says:
Snapshot provider error (0x2): The system cannot find the file specified.
Check the Windows Event Viewer for details.
V-79-57344-37907 - Snapshot error during backup. Set has been canceled.
The selection is not always the same either. So I'm not sure if the problem resides with the selection(s) or within Backup Exec. After researching a bit on Syamntec's website, I found two possible options. Either change the snapshot provider to Microsoft VSS from VSP, or increase the file cache size on the Advanced Open File Wizard.
Can anyone help out and provide me with some direction? I can provide more info as well.
