Unexpected behavior of NetVault Backup WebUI

NetVault Backup installer fails during push installation

Push installation fails for a target client.

The following error message appears in the task log:

NetVault Backup installer for the core package failed with error 1.

There are several reasons why an installation can fail. The information in the installation log file can help you diagnose and troubleshoot the issue. You can find the log file in the system temporary directory. (The TEMP environment variable for system account determines the location of this directory; this path is typically set to %windir%\Temp.)

Depending on the stage at which the installation process fails, the installer may create a file named netvault_{GUID}_install.log or bitrock_installer.log (or bitrock_installer_nnn.log).

If you are unable to resolve the issue, contact Quest Technical Support.

VSS-based backup fails

When performing a VSS-based backup, if the VSS writer fails to generate a snapshot, the job fails.

The log messages show the following errors:

These messages indicate a problem in the VSS subsystem. NetVault Backup cannot complete the backup job if the VSS subsystem is not functioning properly. Before you run the job again, we recommend that you do the following:

Delete the existing shadow copies. (You can use the Vssadmin or DiskShadow utilities to delete the shadow copies.)
