I'm trying to move our storage groups log file path, but everytime I try it says that there is a backup in progress and the operation cannot be completed.  We use symanted backup exec and it is not currently running.  What could be causing this problem?

Thanks for any help.

FRom a command prompt, type the following: VSSADMIN LIST WRITERS

Do any of the VSS writers show "Waiting for completion [5]" as their status?

Have the backups been successful all the way along?

Looking in the event viewer I only see this warning concerning the mailbox store:

Event ID: 9871

There is an online maintenance overlap for database "First Storage Group\Temp". Please revise the online maintenance schedule.

Thanks.

Running that I'm seeing lots of Waiting for Completion [5].  Looking at symantec backup exec more thoroughly I am seeing errors related to the writers.  How do I go about fixing this?  Thanks for your help.

$muttered_Curses{VSS}=Gods I hate volume shadow services implementation;

ANYway. The Exchange writer is showing with a failed status; while a reboot of the server clears this error, after the next backup it's likely to go back to a failed status.

If you can take the downtime, I'd reboot and move the logs thereafter as the VSS writers will be at a default state, but only once you've confirmed you've got a good full backup.

What version of Backup Exec are you using? Also, what version of the Windows server OS?

Thanks for the quick response.  I will do the restart, but will have to wait until the weekend as there are users on the system almost nonstop until then.  The version of Backup Exec is 12.5 and the version of Windows is 2008 with SBS 2008 on it.  Thanks for all your help.  I'll let you know how the reboot goes.
