I am having an issue with VSS.

I cannot run vssadmin from administrator command prompt. I get "blocked by group policy"

I am also getting the following error in event viewer:

Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine RegOpenKeyExW(-2147483646,SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VSS\Diag,...).  hr = 0x80070005, Access is denied.
.

Operation:
   Initializing Writer

Context:
   Writer Class Id: {5382579c-98df-47a7-ac6c-98a6d7106e09}
   Writer Name: TermServLicensing
   Writer Instance ID: {73f2ffd0-644a-4f64-8146-87e64596afd6}

Are you running AppLocker or something like Cryptoprevent? Have you checked permissions to the mentioned registry key? Do you have a .exe restriction policy in place?

It looks like cryptoprevent was run on the server. I am trying to undo the changes.

That is the most common cause of this, in my experience. :)

Do you have a solution for undoing what cryptoprevent did?

Add the .exe to the whitelist.

This should get you what you need. :)
