Exchange 2012 VSS writer fails when backing up with Backup Exec 2012

Hello

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

Moshe

Here is an article that goes over exchange vss: http://blogs.technet.com/b/timmcmic/archive/2012/03/11/exchange-and-vss-my-exchange-writer-is-in-a-failed-retryable-state.aspx.

Although it lists 2007 and 2010, it may also be relevant to your version.
