Windows Server 2008 R2 X64 Exchange 2010 Databackup

We are having constant backup problems using the Windows Server 2008 backup utility backing up our Exchange 2010 DB's.

We receive the following error in the Event Log:

The backup operation that started at '¿2011¿-¿10¿-¿03T03:00:06.702190700Z' has failed with following error code '2155348041'. Please review the event details for a solution, and then rerun the backup operation once the issue is resolved.

The backups work off and on. Research has been spent on this issue with backups in which I have already tried circular logging, restarting Information Store service, starting Volume Shadow Copy service.

The backups used to complete just clearing the logs but now after a succesful backup we receive "Completed with Warnings"

My first thought looking at that is that the job took about 9 hours for 237 GB.  That seems really slow.
Is TSPVCENTER a remote share on the LAN?

Have you tried to backup to a local disk or a local attached USB disk.  It would probably cut down the task time and maybe the error you see is related to such a long backup window?

I have not tried a backup locally or with USB. Yes we are backing up to a remote share on the LAN.  The exchange server is a VM on our network.

I will try backing it up locally and see what results I get.

Any other ideas?  The backups used to work fine and now they are taking forever to backup.

I'm having the same issue with a locally-attached USB drive as the target. Sure could use some help figuring this out. The process times out after about 6 hours (backup source is a ~900gb mailbox folder)...

I was having the same issue until my logs got flushed. You will need to dismount the DB's and renable using Circular Logging to fix the issue.  After doing this my backups are running great.

Thanks for the input; I figured out my issue over the weekend - turns out that WinSvr08 doesn't like external HDs > 2tb and mine was 3tb. Once I swapped it the backup ran fine.
