I have a System State backup failing for days on a Windows 2K8r2 server, giving an Event ID 517 error
Quite a cryptic error code ‘2155347997’
After looking around on the interweb I found a lot of hotfixes and workarounds to get it solved. But I was convinced that none of those was really the root cause.
I had a gut feeling that lack of disk space would be a more reasonable cause of the failing backup.
I decided to start a manual backup using WBAdmin
But it did end into the same error ?
Next I decided to save the backup to a different server logical disk using this command :
WBADMIN START SYSTEMSTATEBACKUP -backupTarget:\\server\e$
And voila all went well
