Windows Server 2016 – "Disk # has been surprise removed", Event ID 157 / 12289 / 5014

Been getting Event ID 157 Disk # has been surprise removed on a brand new Windows 2016 AD DC …

This server runs as a VM, so how can it give disk issues ?


I also saw this Event ID 12289 VSS appearing …


When I looked a little closer I notice both had the same time more or less…

Then I remembered that this was the time a VM Ware Snapshot was taken…

So these events make sense, and can be disregarded.

Same for the Event ID 5014 DFSR


Detail message says, Pauzed for Backup or Restore


Indeed that is the time a Backup is taken…

All false alarm…
