Backup MS Forefront TMG Configuration with VSS ISA-Writer

Jump to solution
Hi,

I try to backup the configuration of a Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway with the VSS ISA-Writer. I installed the Data Protector "MS Volume Shadow copy integration" on the client, but if I get the list of the writers ("Source"), there are only System Writer, WMI Writer an Filesystem; no ISA Writer or someone else.
When I run "VSSADMIN list writer" on the client, the writer and many others are listed.

So, where is the ISA Writer in Data Protector? Has anyone experience belonging backup of TMG?

Many thanks for your help

Andreas

Hi,

The backup of MS Forefront TMG has not been certified with Data Protector yet. This is why its writer is still not on the list of supported writers.

In order to be able to see this writer in the Data Protector GUI, set following omnirc variable on the system whre application is running:

OB2VSS_SHOWALLWRITERS=1
# Default: 0
# If set to 1, this variable disables writer filtering. All writers on the
# system are shown, regardless if they are supported or not. If set to 0,
# only supported VSS writers are shown.
# This variable is applicable on any application client system, running VSS integration.

Hi,

also with omnirc OB2VSS_SHOWALLWRITERS=1 set (on Data Protector Server and client), no ISA-Writer is shown. I installed Data Protector 6.20, same issue.

Any ideas?

Many many thanks for your help
