AOFO: Initialization failure on Backup Exec 10d
Posted on 2009-04-27
We recently reinstalled Backup Exec 10d. Before that the jobs nearly always completed successfully but now our file system backup regularly completes with exception with the following message:
"AOFO: Initialization failure on: "C:". Advanced Open File Option used: Symantec Volume Snapshot Provider (VSP).
AOFO: Unable to get minimum quiet time for physical volumes. Reduce the activity on these volumes, or wait and run the backup when there is less activity on the volumes. "
One of the first things I did was to switch Automatic Updates services to Manual and stopped the service itself as I have seen it work on similar setups.
This hasn't done much though and would be grateful if somebody can provide me with a solution.
