Event id 2038 exchange vss writer service

You should also check it on the Exchange databases themselves.

The backups complete fine in Veeam, but the host is unhappy. It will run at the next scheduled time. It's a bit puzzling, however, because we found in the Veeam log that it was passing the "copy only" flag to VSS.

Click Finish to create the backup job. I recommend that you only do this if you understand what you're excluding from the backup. For this to be required, the Exchange VSS writer would have to not properly support the copy only flag. You should also check it on the Exchange databases themselves. Choose the backup time and frequency you need for your environment. But I know that when backing up Exchange via an agent-based backup application, the copy only option works well. It was explained that Veeam completes the backup, then tells VSS there was a failure in order to avoid truncating Exchange logs. I opened a support case about this and was eventually told that this is deliberate behavior on the part of Veeam when "Perform copy only" is selected. Monitoring Backup Results for Exchange Server When you're backing up Exchange Server there's two places to look when checking the results of your backup jobs: The backup software's logs or reports The Exchange server's database backup timestamps Since I've used Windows Server Backup in this example I can check the status of the last backup job in the console and confirm that it ran successfully. To check the Exchange server's database backup timestamps use the Get-MailboxDatabase cmdlet.

At the confirmation screen verify that all your selections are correct. Set the scheduled time and frequency for your backup job to run. I opened a support case about this and was eventually told that this is deliberate behavior on the part of Veeam when "Perform copy only" is selected.

So Veeam pretends there was a failure in order to preserve them. Choose the backup time and frequency you need for your environment. For this to be required, the Exchange VSS writer would have to not properly support the copy only flag.

Set the destination to store the backups. I need to explain to my colleagues why a "catastrophic failure" is actually quite normal and could use some backing documentation.
