    Default Really Urgent!!! Issues Backing up Exchange Databases failed with error code: -528.

    Hi,

    The backup of some of the active databases on the Exchange 2010 server are failing on Windows 2008 Server

    It's an Active - Active array with DAG databases.

    When I try to backup some of the databases I have the following errors:

    ANS5252E TSM attempted to execute a system command which failed.

    If I check the adsm.sys, I get this at the end

    Log file: \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy8\Ex change\Logs\DB II\E0300024F01.log - OK

    Operation terminated with error -528 (JET_errMissingLogFile, Current log file missing) after 4320.292 seconds.

    Soo I'm really lost at this point, it's the Exchange ?, is it TSM ??

    The disks are without space because without a backup the logs are not prunned!!

    Help!!!

    Regards

    UGH! VSS errors! I hate VSS! It says the VSS Exchange writer failed. What does a list of the VSS writers say?

    Ok I'll check that and I'll get back to you on that, but I'm really concerned regarding this message on the audit file created during the integrity check:
    Log file: \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy8\Ex change\Logs\DB II\E0300024F01.log - OK

    Operation terminated with error -528 (JET_errMissingLogFile, Current log file missing) after 4320.292 seconds.
