Seems that the VSS option was enabled for the /CONFIGURATION backup and the fallback is not allowed or possible. Check the advanced settings on the backup job and try again. Check the event logs of the client for possible errors as well.

Re: Fallback to legacy filesystem backup was not allowed. Aborting the backup

How do I check if the VSS is enabled?  I'm looking through all the tabs for the backup spec/datalist, but I don't see it.

Re: Fallback to legacy filesystem backup was not allowed. Aborting the backup

You need to check both possible options.

1. Options -> Filesystem options -> Advanced -> WinFS options
2. Backup object summary -> client object -> Properties -> WinFS options

Re: Fallback to legacy filesystem backup was not allowed. Aborting the backup

I see. VSS backup is enabled per default on /CONFIGURATION - regardless your settings. You need to check if VSS generates errors in the system/application event log on the client during backup. Try creating a manual VSS copy on drive C: to see if it is working or not. Check logs again. If you solve the issue on the client, the backup should work as expected.

VSS copy is working for C, but not CONFIGURATION.

Re: Fallback to legacy filesystem backup was not allowed. Aborting the backup

I have the same problem on one active directory server under windows 2008R2.

I would like backup CONFIGURATION et VSS return an error ID 12294

 

Sorry the message error is in french...

 

"Erreur du service de cliché instantané des volumes : erreur lors de l’appel d’une routine sur le fournisseur de cliché instantané {b5946137-7b9f-4925-af80-51abd60b20d5}.

Re: Fallback to legacy filesystem backup was not allowed. Aborting the backup

Have you tried to create a manual VSS snapshot of C: drive using Windows? Is there sufficient disk space available for snapshot creation and the service in the manual state?

If this is Data Protector 6.20, see the following note in the knowledge base. There might be a fix available...

Re: Fallback to legacy filesystem backup was not allowed. Aborting the backup

I would check the properties of the backup job from the Backup Object Summary tab. I have seen where the option is turned off in the normal spot but turned on in the summary page.

 

IE. The VSS option has been turned off on my backups under Options-Filesystem Options-Advanced-WinFS Options-MS Volume Shadow Copy Options-Use Shadow Copy (unchecked)

 

BUT when I go to Backup Object Summary-Properties of server-Win FS Options-MS Volume Shadow Copy Options-Use Shadow Copy (it has been cheked here)
