Initialization failure on: "System?State"
Posted on 2010-08-16
We keep getting thefollowing failed error on Symantec backup Exec 2010 running on a Small Business Server running Windows 2003
- AOFO: Initialization failure on: "System?State". Advanced Open File Option used: Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).
V-79-10000-11231 - VSS Snapshot error. Activity on a volume is preventing all volumes from being snapped. Try selecting the option 'Process logical volumes for backup, one at a time' , and then run the job again.
The following volumes are dependent on resource: "C:" .
We also get the warning:
Backup- \\ts.abcde.local\System?StateVSS Snapshot warning. File %BeBootDrive%\bootmgr is not present on the snapshot.
"Use Advanced open file option" is selected, as is "Process logical volumes for back up one at a time". In the open file configuration, I have it currently set on "Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (Windows 2003 and later), with snapshot provider set to - "Automatic - Allow VSS to select the snapshot provider". I have also tried using the "Automatically select open file technology"
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
