Backups of System Reserved partition intermittently hang at 5% when using Symantec System Recovery (SSR).

Problem

Backups of System Reserved partition intermittently hang at 5% when using Symantec System Recovery (SSR).

When this issue occurs, VProSvc.exe takes up around 50% CPU.

The issue is seen when backing up to a network location (i.e. network share) but has also been seen when backup destination is set to a local device (i.e. USB drive).

Solution

NOTE: When the issue occurs, end the process for VProSvc.exe in Task Manager which will cancel the active backup and return the CPU level back to an acceptable level.

Solution:

This issue is resolved in service pack 3 (10.0.3) for SSR 2011 which is available via LiveUpdate, MyVeritas portal (See http://www.veritas.com/docs/000100418) and here http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH195461.
