Backup Services Won't Run RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've seen issues with this in other threads, but I can't find a solution. I recently added a 3 TB hard drive to my server running WHS 2011, and I set it up to back up the server, with the intent of keeping the server back up off site. I don't think it ever created a backup, and then I got the error other people have gotten that says certain services aren't running - the addin services, the identity services, and the server backup services. On suggestion was to make sure the drives all have unique names, which I did, to no avail.

    I finally ended up disabling the backup service, and now the other two run fine. I would like to get the backup configured correctly, so if anyone has solved this problem, I'm all ears.

  • WHS2011 does not support drives >2TB and the total server backup limit is 2TB.
