Backup and Restore Functionality in a Cluster

Updated: November 25, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Successful backup and restore requires certain preconditions. The failover cluster must be running and must have quorum. Software used for backup and restore must be compatible with the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) and with the VSS Writer used by failover clusters. For complete success in a restore, all nodes must be running throughout the time when the restore is performed. Also, the account used by the person performing the backup or restore must be an administrative account.

Events

Event ID Source Message

1541

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

The backup operation for the cluster configuration data has been aborted because quorum for the cluster has not yet been achieved. Please retry this backup operation after the cluster achieves quorum.

1542

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

The restore request for the cluster configuration data has failed. This restore failed during the 'pre-restore' stage usually indicating that some nodes comprising the cluster are not currently operational. Ensure that the cluster service is running successfully on all nodes comprising this cluster.

1543

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

The restore operation of the cluster configuration data has failed. This restore failed during the 'post-restore' stage usually indicating that some nodes comprising the cluster are not currently operational. It is recommended that you replace the current cluster configuration data file (ClusDB) with '%1'.

1544

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

The backup operation for the cluster configuration data has been canceled. The cluster Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) writer received an abort request.

1545

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

The restore operation for the cluster configuration data has failed. This was due to insufficient privileges associated with the user account performing the restore. Please ensure that the user account has local administrator privileges.

1582

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

Cluster Service failed to move the restored cluster hive at '%1' to '%2'. This may prevent the restore operation from succeeding successfully. If the cluster configuration was not properly restored, please retry the restore action.

4864

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

Volume shadow copy service task resource '%1' creation failed. The error code was '%2'.

4865

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

Volume shadow copy service task resource '%1' failed. The error code was '%2'. This is because the associated task could not be stopped as part of an offline operation. You may need to stop it manually using the Task Scheduler snapin.

4866

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

Volume shadow copy service task resource '%1' failed. The error code was '%2'. This is because the associated task could not be deleted as part of an offline operation. You may need to delete it manually using the Task Scheduler snapin.

4867

Microsoft-Windows-FailoverClustering

Volume shadow copy service task resource '%1' failed. The error code was '%2'. This is because the associated task could not be added as part of an online operation. Please use the Task Scheduler snapin to ensure your tasks are properly configured.
