Can anyone help with this issue?
I have got a SBS 2011 server which I'm getting VSS warnings within the Application Event Logs with Event ID: 8230 as per the attached image!

The VSS errors seems to increase over time before the server locks up and I have to restart the server again.

Thanks.

I've seen this error on several different SBS2011 installations, and all articles I've found state that this is normal and not to do anything to fix it.  Also, the critical Sharepoint Foundation errors indicate a permissions issue - please look at this EventID.net article:

http://www.eventid.net/display-eventid-6398-source-SharePoint%20Foundation-eventno-10914-phase-1.htm

My guess is that something else is actually causing your server lockups.   Do you have all the latest services packs, security updates, etc., installed for SBS2011, Windows Server 2008 and for Exchange 2010?

According to Microsoft http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2483007 about halfway down the page:



Cause: The warnings occur because the Sharepoint VSS writer and search services run under the context of a domain user account.

Resolution: The warnings are benign and can be safely ignored.
