We are using IBM TIVOLI Fatback for Exchange to run snapshot backups of the passive db in out Exchange 2007 CCR (SP3 RU3) Windows Server 2008 SP2. This has been working fin but now we are seeing the following error:
Event ID 964
Source ESE Backup
Microsoft.Exchange.Cluster.ReplayService (3888) The surrogate backup to EXCHMBX has been stopped with error 0xFFFFFFFF.
So far I have tried:
Rebooting server, Failing over and trying to backup both from the active & passive nodes.
I have also tried reseeding a DB.
I have currently switched on Circular Loggin to keep the logs down.
Checking the VSS state using - vssadmin list writers sometimes hows the Exchaneg writer in a retryable state.
I can't work out if this is a Exchange issue or an VSS/Backup problem.
This has now been going on for a week so I am desperate for some help please!
