VSS Error 8194 When Attempting Backups


J

jyeager

I am receiving the above error from VSS in my application logs when I try to
backup with Mozy and Retrospect....

I was on the phone with Mozy support trying to debug the probelm with no
luck. We've tried reregistering the vss dlls and restarting services with no
luck.

As soon as Mozy reports it is doing the shadow copy I get the log entry
below. After reboot it is clear.

Vssadmin list writers always displays this after the bad shadow copy also:
