Thread: Volume Shadow Copy Errors

  1. #1

    Default Volume Shadow Copy Errors

    I just bought Amanda Enterprise 3 and am trying to backup a Windows 2008 server. The C drive backs up flawlessly. As soon as I try to backup the E drive however, the ZWC Service dies as well as the Volume Shadow Copy service. Looking in the event log I get the following error:

    Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine IVssBackupComponents::SetContextInternal. hr = 0x80042301.

    Operation:
    Add a Volume to a Shadow Copy Set

    Context:
    Execution Context: Requestor

    Any idea what might be causing this?
    Thanks,
    Mike

    0x80042301 implies VSS or VSS writers are in error. Can you please run
    vssadmin list writers in the command shell and provide the output?
