Dear People i have a problem with a backup of a Hyper-v virtual machine.
we needed like 2 months ago to build a new file server. so we did this.

we created a new machine in Hyper-v and added the disks and serve to the
failovercluster.

Then we added it to a backup job in Veeam.

from the first try it didnt backupped the server Fs02.



It keeps saying abbout vss

one of the first messages in eventviewer: event id: 12289, source: VSS,
Logname : Application

So first i got support from veeam but they couldn’t help because it is a
windows server 2012 problem.

i was looking to the vss admin writers, 3 where in a failed state:

Code: Select all

i searched for the services of thos admin writers and restarted them.the
vss admin writers are no healty, and After that I rebooted the server. But
still I got no success.

When I try to run a backupjob of the server in veeam this is the static
log:
