Make sure the Perform Disaster Recovery check box is unchecked. You can't do that one and the VSS_OTHER or the other VSS with that turned on.networkerdisaster_recovery.JPG

Could be so many things... if you google "0x8004230f vss" you will see what I mean.  Checking event log for related or more messages might isolate resolution process.

Is this Windows 2008 R2 systems?  Do you have a version of NetWorker client on them that supports 2008 R2?

Yes, that's the solution!!!! Thank you a lot!!

And the problem was really after install some microsoft patches!

But it is unacceptable that that this action is a solution forever.
It doesnt save DEASTER_RECOVERY anymore. What should I do, if some day my backup server is down and i have to
recover this backup ? Will it be work?

My understanding is that you setup a different "client" (same client name) with the DISASTER_RECOVERY selection and don't include the VSS stuff in the save sets. That way you get the regular backups and the DISASTER_RECOVERY. Use a different schedule for the DISASTER_RECOVERY like once a month or every 2 weeks.

I don't think that is solution to this problem. The thing is, if you unchecked DISASTER_RECOVERY save set, you will not be able to BMR (Bare Metal Recovery) that machine. Tried it, it didn't work.

Hi all, I have the same issue. I can't backup my VADP Proxy anymore. The issue started to come up after some MS patches and the change from diskpart: automount disable. Nothing else has been changed on that system.

Tried several approches I have found, none of the worked. Anyone might have a good idea?

Has anyone tried a re-register of the VSS?
