Actually, what it means is that the VSS writers needs to be started. For example, the VSS writer of SQL is a service and sometimes that service is on manual (or even disabled) depending on the installation (can't remember anymore if this is default or not...)
So, in command prompt. Run:
- Code: Select all
vssadmin list writers
That should give you already an overview of the writers on the guest.
In services (services.msc), have a look if there are no VSS writers services that are set to manual or disabled
Hope it helps
