We are getting the following error in our backup logs for off-site servers:Code:Backup Status
Active backup destination: 4mm DDS
Media name: “”Pembroke BK 24/11/2005 AT 22:12″”
Volume shadow copy creation: Attempt 1.
Timeout before function completed
Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:0xffffffff.
Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:ffffffff
The operation did not successfully complete.
The error has only started to happen recently. Some servers run OK, others always fail the first backup but run the second time and one just will not run backup at all. They all fail with the above message.
We are in the middle of a project to migrate users from NT4 domains and Exchange 5.5 to AD and Exchange 2003.
The only thing I have found which relates to this problem invloves re-registring some dlls, and when we called Microsoft Support their first suggestion was the same thing:Code:net stop vss
regsvr32 /s ole32.dll
regsvr32 /s vss_ps.dll
regsvr32 /s /i swprv.dll
regsvr32 /s /i eventcls.dll
regsvr32 /s es.dll
regsvr32 /s stdprov.dll
regsvr32 /s vssui.dll
regsvr32 /s msxml.dll
regsvr32 /s msxml3.dll
regsvr32 /s msxml4.dll
At the moment we are perplexed and not sure what to try next, any help will be greatly appreciated.
