Volume Shadow Copy Service error RRS feed

  • Question

  • We installed the MSDN version of Home Server 2011.  We're attempting a backup and get the following errors:

    Volume Shadow Copy Service error: An internal inconsistency was detected in trying to contact shadow copy service writers.  Please check to see that the Event Service and Volume Shadow Copy Service are operating properly.

    Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Shadow Copy writer ContentIndexingService called routine RegQueryValueExW which failed with status 0x80070002 (converted to 0x800423f4).

    We found this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907574 . The information under the \Web are all missing.  Not sure if creating these will fix the problem...

    By default, the following subkeys are configured in the following way:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ContentIndex\Catalogs\System

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ContentIndex\Catalogs\Web

    We've been running the previous version for a number of years and remember this Volume Shadow Copy issues in the early stages also and can't remember the solution or if a patch resolved it.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.
