File Server Resource Manager Service will not start Error 8197

I have deployed the File Server Role on a W2K3 EE R2 SP2 server.  The File Server Resource Manager Service will not start and logs the following errors.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance.

Does "System" have Full Control of the hidden "System Volume Information" folders (and subfolders) on the drives that that server can see?  Have you changed the security context under which the File Server Resource Management Service runs?
Did FSRM used to run OK on here or is this newly enabled?

Although this looks to be a different problem, you might want to consider trying the solution offered in post 2:

Try to remove the components and reinstall.

Removed component, reboot, reinstall.  Same exact errors, same volume.  How would I determine which volume it's referencing?  It seems like a rights issue.

The C drive SVI folder only had the domain administrator listed, not the SYSTEM.  Adding this group solved the problem.  Thank you.

The "SYSTEM" group did need to be added the the C drive "System Volume Information" folder.  This allowed the service to be installed and started.

System group by default added to C:\ root , You mean you changed the permission due to which the problem occurs.
and after adding this, the issue got resolved.

This is a new sever install.  For some reason the "SYSTEM" group was not given FULL CONTROL to the SVI folder on the C:\ dir when the server was added to domain or when the OS was installed.  Only the domain\administrator had security rights to the SVI folder.  This prevented the SRMSVC from starting.  Adding the "SYSTEM" group manually and giving FULL CONTROL resolved the issue.
