  • Issue with VSS on Storage server 2003 R2

    Hi All,

    I have windows storage server 2003 R2 and VSS is not working on the server. I checked and found that the VSSadmin writers were failing. I restarted the specific services but no go. This is a Physical Production server so I just cannot try things on the machine.

    I tried P2V but it failed as VSS was not working. Then via Acronis application I somehow converted it to Virtual machine. Now I am trying things on this converted Virtual machine.

    I have followed below mentioned links but no go

        Are you using TrueCrypt or other encryption technology?

          vssadmin list shadowstorage

          have a look at how much shadow storage you have available - i suspect your snapshot is not processing because there's not enough space for it to grow..
