  • event id 12289

    hi, after the server has been running for a few months, we get event id 12289 in the App log when the native sbs 2008 backup runs,
    Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error VSS_E_WRITER_STATUS_NOT_AVAILABLE. An older active writer session state is being overwritten by a newer session. The most common cause is that the number of parallel backups has exceeded the maximum supported limit. hr = 0x80042409.
    no other backup software installed.
    If I reboot this fixes until 64 more backups and the events start to occur again.
    How can I prevent the VSS events from occurring?
