Automatic Backup Failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys.  I've been searching & reading the various threads relating to backup failure for the past 2 weeks, as I noticed that one system has been failing to backup since 11th Dec.  My WHS has been running since I built it in Nov 07 & until 11th, all backups have been successful.  After reading the posts on those threads, checked the VSS service & found that it was not running.  Re-enabled it & did a manual backup which succeeded.

    However, automatic back keeps failing.  Using Brubber's code snippet, I keep getting the following when trying to re-register the dll's: - loaded but call to DllRegisterServer failed.

    Systems connected to WHS are: - XP Pro/XP X64/Vista Ultimate(64bit)/Vista Business/Win 7 Pro & Win 7 Ultimate(64bit).  it's the Win 7 Pro that is failing & no programs installed/uninstalled since the last succeessful backup on the 10th Dec.

    Can this be resolved or is it best to just do a fresh clean re-install?

  • Not long after posting the above, found a further possible answer in another thread, tried finding it again, but can't remember what one it was.   So thanks to the guy that posted it.

    He had similar problems & reconfigured backup & it worked for him.   Tried this & last night's backup worked ok on automatic.  Will check backups for the rest of the week to see if problem resolved.
