  • Windows Server Backup fails to backup Exchange Server 2010 SP3

    I have a SBS 2011 standard with Exchange 2010 SP3 (rollup 2).
    The complete windows backup (using Windows Server Backup) reports an error on the Exchange backup: "The application will not be available for recovery".

    On the event viewer I found two MSExchangeIS error events (id 9782): "Event id 9782: Exchange VSS Writer <instance GUID> has completed the backup of database <DB> with errors. The backup did not complete successfully, and no log files were truncated for this database."

    After the two 9782 errors there is an ESE error event id 2007: "Shadow copy instance ... aborted"

    And a VSS Warning about spsearch login (but it is previous to the backup).
    There are no error events about "consistency" of the databases.

    What I tried:

    1) disable antivirus
    2) check that on the disk there is enough space (~ 3 times the Exchange database)
    3) check VSS Exchange provider (VSSADMIN list writers) which is in STABLE condition
    4) check Exchange Mailbox and Public DB consistency with ESEUTIL (no errors)

    I read tons of Q&A but the problem is sitll there and is driving me crazy!
    Please help me to fix it!!!
