Hello,

in Site Manager 7.2.39.71 that was working with no problems imaging several vm server and phisical workstations, now they all fails with these errors:
----
A VSS error was encountered creating the snapshot - Error: 0x80042316
The backup failed to complete successfully - Reason: Backup aborted! - Failed To Create Volume Snapshot. Failed - 0x80042316 - IDispatch error #8470
----

Tried several sultions: VSSFIX.exe from Macrium, manual script to re-register vss components, vssadmin list writers are all OK and so on. vss services are up and running on all clients. Also added the registry fix to increase the vss timeout byt still fails. Don't know what to do now! Thanks.

HI @glanc

Thanks for posting and sorry you are having issues with the backup process in Site Manager. We are aware of the issue and are currently working on a fix for release. This should be available shortly but cannot confirm ETA at this time.

Kind regards​​​​​

Hello,

deleting the registry entry "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{533c5b84-ec70-11d2-9505-00c04f79deaf}\UpperFilters" from all the affected PC fixed the issue. Thanks.

It is recommended the registry entry above is *not* deleted. This may cause VSS to be non functioning on most systems.

Hi,
Unfortunately it looks like you've encountered a second issue that was being hidden by the VSS issue. The latest version of the Site Manager agent creates a log called AgentNetwork.log which contains detailed information on the error accessing the share.

Unfortunately I can't read the attached LastBackupXml.log, so I can't see what sort of credentials you have set on your share, but in some situations this error can be caused by either missing the domain from the repository credentials or using the older style DOMAIN naming rather than the newer style DNS domain.local naming.

If you continue to have issues, our support team should be able to help if you open a support case!

Hello,
filling the DOMAIN field with the hostname of the QNAP solved the problem.

Hi,

That's good news. We're currently investigating what the root cause of these issues is and hope to have a fix soon, but it's good that you have a workaround and are up and running again.

I just encountered this error today. Rerunning the script worked.



I'm running the most recent version of Reflect but thought I'd post this in case it might help.

Thanks for posting.

This error is generally resolved with a reboot or by changing the time that the backup is run. Please see this KB article.

These scripts have been in use for months without any problems until yesterday. Today, or better, last night - the same error occurred and, again, when I ran the script manually it worked as expected. I've made no changes to this machine with regards to backup software - this was a sudden change in behavior. I ran "Fix VSS Problems" earlier today with the hope that my image script will run tonight without any problems.

I've rebooted several times to make sure nothing is sitting in memory - still puzzled by this sudden change.

If this continues tonight I'll modify the script to begin at a later time and post what I find.

Thanks for getting back. Apologies, I can see that the  VSS_E_SNAPSHOT_SET_IN_PROGRESS error is caused by the previous IDispatch #470 error so please disregard the kb article.

Hopefully the fix VSS problems function will resolve the error. If not, check the vss log for the first error in the log. It may have more information. If not you may find more in the Windows event log.

It appears that "Fix VSS Problems" did, indeed, fix the problem. All disk images since have run without any problems.
