WHS 2011 RTM - Backup "Unsuccessful" because of drive NOT configured for backup! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running WHS 2011 RTM.  I have configured server backup and added all my drives except 1 to the server backup (did not add my RAID-5 array).  However when back-up runs, I get an "Unsuccessful" event, and the reason is that it says backup of my excluded drive (again, my RAID-5 array) is unsuccessful even though it is excluded from back-up.  If i explicitly tell it not to back up this drive, it should not give me an Unsuccessful message.  Id like to set up email notifications, but I dont want to get notified of this because in my opinion it is working as expected. 

    Whats the deal?  Is this a bug?  Is there a workaround for this?
