Im having a bit of an issue with both my servers. One is running SBS 2003 and the other is running server 2008 standard.
Both are running StorageCraft ShadowProtect backup software. We are also backing up our servers off-site into a backup data centre.
The problem i am having, is when there is a windows update, or a power outage the server reboots or shuts down.
With ShadowProtect, if the backup job is not completed successfully or aborted from the console. It causes the system to do its next backup via VDIFF. This is my problem, when this happens the back goes from taking seconds or minutes, to days.
What i am looking for is a script that will allow me to check and see if the state of the shadowprotect backup is in the process of running and if so, execute an abort so once it is aborted the server can continue to shutdown as it normally would.
Like this once the server comes back online, it wont know any difference and just send the next increment over to the data centre.
I know this solution may be made of a few different solutions, but everyone who helps, thank you in advance.
Depending on how your abort sequence is, or if you just need to kill the process....
