small business server 2011 and 2008 backup failing

Published on June 22, 2014 by in server

VSS – various error messages, several fixes we apply all at once to cover all bases

  1. fully update your server, reboot
  2. Run the sharepoint configuration wizard from start –> programs –> sharepoint –> reboot
  3. run this batch file to register and fix certain DLL’s
  4. Open an Administrative command prompt.
    Change directory to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN
    Run PSConfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd applicationcontent -install -cmd installfeatures
  5. stop SQL server VSS writer
  6. Try backup after all of this, or after each fix to see if it works
