I'm trying to run snapshot on my server to back up the drive onto a local NAS server. I'm currently using this on a Win2k, Win2k3, and Win2k8 servers. Both the Win2k and Win2k8 servers are correctly backup up the data, but the Win2k3 is returning a:
Could not Start
error. I use a batch file to run snapshot, and it's run using a Domain Admin account. Here's the specific Batch code:
pskill snapshot rem @echo off echo. 2>"C:\Program Files\Snapshot\logs\monday_snapshot.log" "C:\Program Files\Snapshot\snapshot.exe" c: \\NAS\Data_Backup\snapshot\server\monday_cdrive.sna -Go -T --novss --LogFile:"C:\Program Files\Snapshot\logs\monday_snapshot.log" "C:\Program Files\Snapshot\snapshot.exe" F: \\NAS\Data_Backup\snapshot\server\monday_fdrive.sna -Go -T --novss --LogFile:"C:\Program Files\Snapshot\logs\monday_snapshot.log" blat -bodyF "C:\Program Files\Snapshot\logs\monday_snapshot.log" -server mail.netcommusa.net -portSMTP 2525 -f firstname.lastname@example.org -i snapshot@*******.com -subject "Snapshot of Main Server" -u mailrelay@*******.net -pw mailrelay -to ********@gmail.com
Note blat is a simple program to send email from the command window
My last result was:
which means that:
0x0: The operation completed successfully.
(from this KB article) but it's not successfully completing as it's not backup up the drives. Not sure where to go from here. Any suggestions?
