    Hello,

     

     

    We are having a issue with a clients backups all incremental  backups of windows 2008 server are getting partial susccessful when logging into the server and viewing the “vssadmin list writers” the “system Writer” is missing. from what I read there is a KB fix (KB 2009272) that usually corrects the issue infact it has worked in the past.

     

    However the Admin ran scripts for the KB and it didn't fix the issue. The "system writer" is still missing. I was just curious if anyone has had the issue and if there is anything we could check/do/troubleshoot that might correct the issue? any suggestions are welcome.

    VSS Writers are apart of the Microsoft OS. This may be of more help to resolve the issue - https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/ntdebugging/2013/08/27/missing-system-writer-case-explained/

    The issue is occuring on the OS side. Microsoft hasn't done much to address this issue outside of the script which was created for 2008 machines and continues to be an issue through 2016 operating issues.

    Hi Liam,

    Yes, has and continues to be an issue on some of our servers (2008 -2016) backups the script that you mentioned that microsoft created would that be in KB 2009272? see below? Just making sure in case its not then (system admin) can run that script as well.

     

    Thanks

    Agreed, however 2009272 denotes specifically 2008 and that is not the case.
