Acronis TI Echo Server (build8,203) - SQL backup errors but image completes.

Posted on 2009-04-16
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
My setup: Server 2003 latest sp, ATIEchoS (build8,203), SQL 2005 SP3 upgraded 4-6 weeks ago.

I was not having this issue before the SQL 2005 sp3 upgrade from sp2 that I ever noted in my event logs. Now my app log reports these nightly with the following error types(.txt attached have detailed examples of errros) although Acronis reports that the image completes successfully per the log the next a.m.

Event ID errors SOURCES: SQLWriter(Evt ID 24583), MSSQLSERVER(Evt ID 18210 & 3041), SQLVDI(Evt ID 1), VSS.... @ 8:00:33 pm est when the acronis schedule task starts nightly, which is set with the backup enabled for VSS DB support.

How reliable are my images? Thoughts?  Thx

    We run this command before running the backup on our

    sc stop sqlserveragent
    SET NUM=1
    IF %NUM% == 6000 GOTO END1
    SET /A NUM=NUM+1
    @ECHO ON
    sc stop mssqlserver
    SET NUM=1
    IF %NUM% == 6000 GOTO END2
    SET /A NUM=NUM+1
    @ECHO ON
    after backup is done we run this
    sc.exe start mssqlserver
    SET NUM=1
    IF %NUM% == 6000 GOTO END
    SET /A NUM=NUM+1
    @ECHO ON
    sc.exe start sqlserveragent
    both are in a batch file and ran with our acronis backup server.
    We found we could backup our mssql server faster this way.
    You could also put in an ticket with acronis they are quick to respond to new issues.

    If i do the above i'm stopping sql and preventing users from using the CRM app while the image is running.   That all said has anyone seen these errrors and been told to ignore them?  I asked b/c i've read things on indicating so, but I wanted to ask around for more insights!
