Thanks, I had a look at the site but that did not help. I suspect this has to do with the configuration of Sharepoint?

WSS_SEARCH_SVCUSER is the user running the sharepoint search service.

Nobody ? :)

I have the same problem during a scheduled task that runs a Windows Server Backup.  The backup runs successfully, however I get this error in the logs.  Is there an update for VSS?  Do we have to put the user that is mentioned in a local group on the server?
cegelandAuthor Commented:
It seems the error message appears whenever I run a backup (Backup Exec 2010) and when I run a backup of Sharepoint using stsadm.

The message about the local group not existing seems to appear in every message - what does this mean?:

Error: NetLocalGroupGetMemebers(administrator), 0x80070560, The specified local group does not exist.

This is what I found to fix it on my end.  I referenced this article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc787108(WS.10).aspx  I noticed on one of my dc backups the backup ran fine and the other was throwing out the errors.  When I went to the registry as stated in the article on the one having issues I noticed the user which I thought would be missing was there so I removed the user.  I re-ran the backup and it ran with no VSS errors.  Just to verify I re-ran the job a second time and the errors are no longer happening.  Good Luck!
