Hi All,

We have a issue with a VSS system state backup on SQL server2008 R2 standard with Avamar client 7.0.101.61

The following actions have already been taken;

Uninstalled third party software uninstalled.

Reregistered VSS dll's

Several reboots.

VSS system state backups on other servers report no problems

Jurgen,

This error is usually received if the 100 MB system partition is offline. Some VSS providers are known for taking offline any partition with no drive letter. You may need to give the partition a drive letter to avoid having it go offline.

Solution: Open the command prompt as administrator, and run the commands below:

C:\>Diskpart

C:\Diskpart> List volume

Check if the 100 MB partition is offline

C:\Diskpart> Select volume 2

(Considering volume 2 is the 100 MB system partition)

C:\Diskpart> Online volume

See the following KB for further details:

Could you also provide the output of the following vssadmin commands if still fails?

vssadmin list writers

vssadmin list providers
