VSS Event 11 and 12292 are logged - 8004230f

Postby guest » Fri Sep 05, 2008 10:48 pm

When using the NTBackup tool on the Windows 2003 R2 SP2 server, VSS Event
11 and 12292 are logged in application log, and backup log says:

Error returned while creating the volume shadow copy:8004230f
Aborting Backup

Based on my research, the error code 8004230f means: The shadow copy
provider had an unexpected error while trying to process the specified
operation. Generally this issue can be caused the following factors:

1. Certain VSS DLLs are not registered properly
2. There is a problem with shadow copy provider

I suggest we perform the followings to troubleshoot the issue:

Step 1: First please apply the latest VSS package (KB940349) on the server.

Download Link:

Reboot the server for the package to take effect

Step 2: Re-register the VSS related DLLs
To do so, type the following commands at the command prompt. Press ENTER
after each command.

cd /d %windir%\system32
net stop vss
net stop swprv
regsvr32 ole32.dll
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 vss_ps.dll
vssvc /register
regsvr32 /i swprv.dll
regsvr32 /i eventcls.dll
regsvr32 es.dll
regsvr32 stdprov.dll
regsvr32 vssui.dll
regsvr32 msxml.dll
regsvr32 msxml3.dll
regsvr32 msxml4.dll

Note: The last command may not run successfully.

Try NT Backup and see if the error still occurs.

Step 3. If the issue persists, go to the following registry key:


Import this key for backup
Delete Key "VOLUME"
Reboot the system
This will recreate the "VOLUME" key
