NTBACKUP Error

I get this below error message when I try to do a NTBACKUP. I do see volume under the shadow tab on the C drive but they are all disabled.  I also stopped the services for a third party backup (symantec backup agent) but no luck. Ay ideas on this?



Volume shadow copy creation: Attempt 1.

Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy: 0x8004230f.

You may need to exclude folders from VSSCopy

Add key reg multisz

Run VSSADMIN LIST WRITERS from a CMD, and see if there is any in an Error state?

You can try this

Run mbrwiz /signature to get the current the signature of drive. Then  change the number slightly and wrote it back with:
mbrwiz /signature=<slightly altered signature from above>

C:\temp>mbrwiz /Signature

Did you run SQL on this server?

If so exclude the database folders using the registry entries I posted above.
