We have noticed number of third-party VSS backups that were occurring on the PI Data Archive machine, but was not sure of the source of these backups. The source of these backups as well as the schedule of these backups were unknown, Because of this 3rd party backup, we are facing multiple connectivity issues in PI Server. From the logs we could see that whenever the backup is started multiple disconnection messages( “pause” the processes in order to take a backup), it is likely that we are running in to issues with the connection between the PI Data Archive and client applications like PI Vision, PI Analysis service.
How we can able to find and track this particular VSS 3rd party backup process.
