We have a Windows 2008 server which is being backed-up using Symantec Backup Exec,
unfortunately the backups are failing with the following error:

VSS Snapshot warning. File c:\windows\system32\vmbuspipe.dll is not present
on the snapshot.

I have done some digging into this error and every refference to this file points towards
Hyper V. The Hyper-V role, however,  is not installed on this server.
At the suggestion of other sites I enabled this role, though immediately had a conflict between this and VMWare. I need VMWare running on this server, hence have again removed Hyper-V.

I have tried excluding the file which has not helped.
I have also searched the server for thisfile, but cannot find it.

Can anyone suggest what I need to try to resolve this error?
