  • SBS Backup Fail


    we have sbs 2008 and for the last 2 weeks the daily backup from within the sbs console has failed with error '2155348129'.

    the event viewer app log displays lots of events - event 1 sqlvdi, 24583 sqlwriter, arcserve_db 3042 and 18210.

    when this happens, the sqlserveriter writer is in a non-retryable state.

    I can stop and start the service to return to a 'stable' state.

    After the backup has failed, Vssadmin list writers shows most are in waiting for completion state.

    I Ran Backup with SQL VSS writer service stopped and full backup was successful - however if this service is stopped the backup does not contain SQL db backup.

    Can anyone assist to fix this?

    I was able to fix this by simply changing the VSS service for sql to logon as the administrator account then the error code 2155348129 stopped showing up and the backups worked.
