Hi,
I keep getting this message on my WIN 2K3 server, i  have checked all services up and running ok, the shadow copy looks to be working but this error keeps getting displayed.

VssAdmin: Unable to create a shadow copy: Either the specified volume was not found or it is not a local volume.
Command-line: 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\vssadmin.exe Create Shadow /AutoRetry=5 /For=\\?\Volume{ddb0d5f4-6c23-11dc-aa39-000e0ca7ed9a}\'.
