    This error I have, I actually had on another server up until last Friday. Exact same error except there was no SQL on that system. I ran all updates and rebooted both servers three nights in a row last week, the backups never worked. Friday night I finally restarted the host, the one server now backs up properly, the SQL one still has the problem. Veeam support is basically useless as well because they just point me to things I've already gone through multiple times.

    Part of the problem is that the best way to figure out why VSS isn't working is a seance or a ritual involving 12 virgins and a goat.

    A goat!

    That's what I've been missing. I had been using a sheep.

    Yes, it's a common misconception that leads to problems down the line. While sheep do have the prerequisite cloven hoofs, the static electricity buildup from the wool interferes with unshielded electronics. Theoretically deer would work, but the retail availability of goats make them a clearly superior option.

    Myiagros, your problems are giving me flashbacks.
    The writer experienced a non-transient error
    Like, screw you Veem, the error message exists but you can't be bothered to provide it? And screw VSS too!
    The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request.
    You seriously can't be fucked to distinguish the difference between those two very different things? Can you not even tell? Could you maybe let someone know what application made that request in the first place?

    We use acronis here (god i'm trying so hard to dump it but i don't even know what to dump it for) and my favorite bit is whenever it fails the error message is random with a description pointing to a link on their online knowledgebase. I'd say roughly half of the errors I deal with link to pages with "no further information about this error" oh, great. Fuck you too.

    I finally opted to buy Acronis for my home system and it works great. Before that I was using Aoemi Backupper, one of the freeware programs. It ran fine and I could do file level restores quite easily, but the disk level restores were complete garbage, they would run but from my online searches it looks like it was a 25% chance if they would ever restore.

    I assume the hive mind using low level radio is just a bunch of IoT devices running compromised firmware.

    I have read at least five scifi stories in this vein.

    My boss and the new guy are such conservative blow hards.

    Get out of my face with that shit

    Edit: and my other co-worker who I know is also Liberal is smiling and nodding because it's his boss.

    Yeah, no. I am not going to be an asshole but I am also not going to respond in the affirmative to shitty politics.

    I'm surrounded by conservatives but I'm very thankful I don't work with anyone who does this shit.
