exchange 2010

we have exchange DAG servers having databases  on different volumes

lately full back up is failing (VSS failures) unable to access snap shot and delete it

also incremental is successful bur full back up done once a week is failing.

where should I check the VSS volume , on c drive of each exchange server who is member of DAG or volumes drives where databases are there,

where do I need to check VSS configuration
ExchangeDatabases* Volume Snapshot Service (VSS)

Hi Pramod,

Could you check with the following command:

vssadmin list writers

Could you copy and paste the results?

Cheers

Double check available disk space on C drive and drive where your database is stored.
Most of VSS errors are coming because of not enough space for snapshot.

vssadmin list writers should tell you about what driver is falling.
You can also post error message with error number here, it would help diagnose.

vss  admin list writers shows no errors,(Double check available disk space on C drive and drive where your database is stored.
 Most of VSS errors are coming because of not enough space for snapshot.) what should be the space required is it 320 mb free?
