Cannot Backup System State
I am having a problem backing up the system state on our domain controller. When I try to run it, I get the following written to a log file:
Active backup destination: File
Media name: "GRI Domain Controller.bkf created 23/09/2008 at 16:27"
Volume shadow copy creation: Attempt 1.
"MSDEWriter" has reported an error 0x800423f4. This is part of System State. The backup cannot continue.
Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:800423f4
The operation did not successfully complete.
As search fo google has bought little joy. I have followed the following article: Error message when you use the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) to back up SQL Server 2000 database files or SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE) database files: "'MSDEWriter' has reported an error 0x800423f4" changed the logon of SQL Service to domain/domain account rather than the local account. Even though when I run the system state backup I have a batch file that stops the service so it shouldn't be a problem.
Has anyone had the same problem, and if so how did you resolve it.
