Problem

After a rename of Exchange 2010 Database the backup fails with - 0xe0008516 - Resources specified for snapshot do not have any valid data on them. Check if the files were deleted or renamed.

Error Message

0xe0008516 - Resources specified for snapshot do not have any valid data on them. Check if the files were deleted or renamed

 

Debug of Beremote on Exchange shows.

Status FS_NO_MORE (0x2000FE07) finding '\User?Data\Exchange Server\Microsoft Exchange Server\Microsoft Information Store\SEVERNAME\DATABASENAME' in SHADOW::DetermineHandlePassThruChangeDir
Status FS_NO_MORE (0x2000FE07)

Error (0x80042301) from VSS - VSS_E_BAD_STATE

UMI: V-79-57344-34070

 

 

Cause

Since the Exchange server has not been rebooted after the database name change, VSS  is not aware of the new name. Backup Exec requests the snapshot of the new name and VSS  fails saying it does not exist.

 

Solution

  1. Reboot the Exchange server so VSS is aware of the new database name and run the backup job.
     
  2. If reboot does not resolve the issue, then re-install the remote agent on the Exchange server, and then retry the backup job.

 

 

Applies To

Exchange 2010 with a renamed database.

Exchange server has not been rebooted since the name change.
