Veeam 8 error with hyper V and VSS

Veeam Logoby bittenbt » Wed Feb 18, 2015 3:40 pm

having issues with Hyper V CSV cluster using the Dell EqualLogic hardware provider. We get the following warning. Opened a ticket with Veeam support but not getting any where on the resolution. (Case # 00810061)

Installed Dell HIT kit on each Cluster node. Per Dell, nothing else to setup for VSS hardware provider.

Code: Select all
VM Backup job task has finished with 'Warning' state.
Task details: Unable to create snapshot Dell EqualLogic VSS HW Provider on "host" (mode: Veeam application-aware processing). Details: Failed to add volume [\\?\Volume{0f66f716-2e1f-4aca-b51c-fcef31e8787a}\] to the VSS snapshot set
The shadow copy provider had an error. Check the System and Application event logs for more information.
--tr:Failed to add volumes to the snapshot set.
--tr:Failed to perform pre-backup tasks.
Retrying snapshot creation attempt (Failed to add volume [\\?\Volume{0f66f716-2e1f-4aca-b51c-fcef31e8787a}\] to the VSS snapshot set

What is the state of that VSS writer if you check it via command prompt? Also can you check Windows event log for more info about the issue?

Hi Vitaliy,

The issue was resolved given permissions issue on the Equal Logic volumes and HIT.

thanks,

Hi Bittenbt,

Can I ask what permissions you changed on the EqualLogic Volumes because I have just implemented Backup & Replication and got the exact error message as you have posted above.
