This has been an issue since the days of Veritas Backup Exec and SBS 4.5 or even earlier. The Exchange VSS writer fails when doing a backup. The solutions are usually:

Re-boot Server
Dismount Databases, Stop Store, Mount Databases re-start Store
Registery edit for some old Veritas issue

My question is as follows:  Is there a solution that does not involve the above to make sure that backups will be done without VSS Writer failing.

Is this an issue that I have to accept will never go away??

Kind Regards
