SQL VSS Writer is missing: databases will be backed up in crash-consistent state

Post by buk3ta » Nov 07, 2019 7:42 am

Hi guys,

I'm currently facing this warning message with one of my backup job. Did my research and found out that this issue can be solved by running SQL Server VSS Writer as Domain Admin not the Local System account.

Kindly share your experience and thought about this.

Thanks guys!

Hi Jufri!

Yes, it makes sense to test the solution mentioned above.
Crash-consistent backup does not preserve data integrity of open files of transactional applications and may result in data loss.

By the way, you may take a look at this article as well.

Thanks!
