Hi Everyone,

I've been getting this error below all the time regarding the VSS backup error in the event viewer, eventhough the VSS Writer status got no error in the cmd prompt.

and also Symantec Backup Exec 2010 R2 agent got error in backup the farm using the DOMAIN\SPService username which is the owner of this WSS_ContentDB and also member of the Farm admin group.

can anyone share your experience here to fix this error please ?

Thanks,
JJ

Sidenote......Symantec products absolutely suck at backing up SharePoint.

Are you doing a SharePoint specific backup?  Or are you just trying to backup the SQL databases?  Is SPService an admin on your WFE server?

try it temporarily.  i just don't know how this product is backing sharepoint up.  have you double checked all things in their setup guide?

what permissions does domain\admin have on the SQL box?  if you look at the properties of the acount, under mappings, what permissions does it have on the _admin database?

thanks man, you're right the problem was solved after making sure that the logon Admin right in the backup Exec is the same as the Farm Admin account and SQL Server DB Owner.

or like this in the most simplest form: Farm Admin = WSS_Content_DB Owner = BE Default Logon Account
