Hi,

Post the out put of below commands:

vssadmin list writers

vssadmin list providers

Also check the Application event log of the server for any VSS error events.

As all the writers are in Waiting for completion, reboot the server to fix the status.

After that try to run the System State Backup.

I hope this helps,
