    Message error data archive backup


      Hi every Body,

      I have a message error backup on data archive. Could someone help us about it?

          Hi Allen,


          The error message is pointing to an issue with the Windows VSS service.  As a first pass, I'd recommend running the following command line command:


          vssadmin list writers


          It should give you an output that looks like:


          Check to see if there is an error with the OSIsoft PI Server application.  If you don't see one, please check to see if the following services are running: Volume Shadow Copy and Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider.


          If you can't find the OSIsoft PI Server Application, then it's likely that the backup service lost connection to the VSS services.  I'd recommend trying to restart the PI Backup Subsystem.


          Let us know what you find out.
