Hello,

iam struggeling setting up the VSS-Support. Keep telling me, that the file is used by another process.

Fileset:
```bash
FileSet {
  Name = "client01-FileSet-2"
  Enable VSS = yes
  Include {
    Options {
      Signature = MD5
      Drive Type = fixed
      IgnoreCase = yes
      WildFile = "[A-Z]:/hiberfil.sys"
      WildFile = "[A-Z]:/pagefile.sys"
      WildFile = "[A-Z]:/swapfile.sys"
      WildDir = "[A-Z]:/RECYCLER"
      WildDir = "[A-Z]:/$RECYCLE.BIN"
      WildDir = "[A-Z]:/System Volume Information"
      Exclude = yes
    }
    File = "C:/Users/User/NTUSER.dat"
    File = "C:/ProgramData/Veeam/EndpointData"
  }
}
```

I've also tested the same with another program called restic. With restic iam able to backup the data from the vss-snapshot.
I also tried to run the bareos-fd as different user (local-administrator)

Any ideas?

Best,
Timo

Another test i did, was to create the vss-snapshot manually on the windows-host and then copy the data from the manually created vss-snapshot-directory C:\TEST\C:

create-snapshot.ps1
$vss = [WMICLASS]"root\cimv2:win32_shadowcopy"
$vsssnapshot = $vss.Create('C:\', "ClientAccessible")
$vssshadow = Get-WmiObject Win32_ShadowCopy | Where-Object { $_.ID -eq $vsssnapshot.ShadowID }
$vssshadowpath  = $vssshadow.DeviceObject + "\"
$vsssnapshotid = "$vssshadow".Split('=')[1];
$vsssnapshotpath = "C:\TEST\C"
New-Item -ItemType Directory -Force -Path $(Split-Path $vsssnapshotpath -Parent) | Out-Null
cmd /c mklink /J $vsssnapshotpath $vssshadowpath | Out-Null
Write-Output "$(Get-Date -Format "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss") DEBUG:VSS ID: $vsssnapshotid"
Write-Output "$(Get-Date -Format "yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss") DEBUG:VSS Mountpoint: $vsssnapshotpath successfully mounted"

job.conf
...
ClientRunBeforeJob = "powershell.exe -noprofile -executionpolicy bypass -file C:/scripts/create-snapshot.ps1"
...

The job runs without any errors or warnings. All files were able to be backupped. One more thing i noticed:

Bareos creates a snapshot will following attributes: vssadmin list shadows
...
Typ: Backup
Attribute: Differential, Auto recovered
...

while the manually created snapshot contains following attributes:
...
Typ: ClientAccessible
Attribute: Persistent, Client-accessible, No auto release, No writers, Differential
...

Any input is welcome

Best,
Timo

Check if the integrated Windows Server Backup works or not.
Are you backing up only these three files, or are the other files where
the backup works?

Hey Andreas,

Windows Server Backup is working.

Those 3 files are just files to demonstrate that somehow the bareos-vss is not working. Like i already mentioned, as a workaround i can create a vss with a powershell-script and ClientRunBeforeJob, then backup and remove the vss with ClientRunAfterJob againAlso using restic, for example, is working like a charm.

Best,
Timo

Hi Timo and Andreas, 

I'd be interested to know how to handle this issue as well - it's happening to a number of my FDs too. Did you figure out how to get VSS to work on all files?

Thanks and regards, 

Matt

We have simuilar issues, it seems for some servers a lot is skipped. We would really like to get to the root cause

OK. There is more to this than just bareos.
1. I used the script from this thread and it seems to be working relatively well for backing up (I'm yet to test the restore part ;-)) the disk. I don't know, however how to backup whole mountpoint. If I put the location of my symlink/junction/whatever that is, only the junction point itself gets backed up, not the contents. I can't make bareos descend into the mounted VSS shadow copy. I have to explicitly list directories (like c:/vssmount/c/users) to back them up.
2. I spent whole evening yesterday trying to get vss to work, regardless of bareos. I tried creating snapshots with " shadowcopy call create Volume=C:\" and then symlinking them by hand and each time I did them I was also getting access denied due to file open. So there must be something else that the script provided in this thread does and neither bareos nor manual wmic call do.
(My system here is Win10)

The more I dig into it, the more it seems it is bareos after all.

Unfortunately, building Windows bareos-fd is no small feat so I cannot directly debug it but.

I ran a procmon against bareos-fd.exe and it seems that while the FD process does create a VSS snapshot... it doesn't read from it. It reads the files straight from the main device. I did a small test fileset consisting of just my user's registry file. And both procmon's dump as well as bareos-fd own debug trace shows that it's trying to read simply a c:\users\test\ntuser.dat instead of properly going for \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HardDiskVolumeShadowCopyXX\Users\test\ntuser.dat. That would explain why the job even though it's supposed to use VSS, fails on copying open files.

When I created a very small example VS project just creating a VSS snapshot and copying said file out of the VSS snapshot (using the proper shadow copy volume path), it works OK.

From what I understand from the description of the make_wchar_win32_path() method in win32/compat/compat.cc - we should leave the function with the filename properly converted to VSS-based one. But apparently we're stuck with local name.

Hello, all normally the issues that are described here, should have been already fixed, and should work without any trouble with bareos >= 23

The code fixing the problem has been submitted and merge a certain time ago with PR1452
Please refresh your installation, and of course report success and failures.

I used the relatively new available client. (23-pre-something, downloaded around 2 weeks ago). Yes, I should have written that explicitly.

Hi Spadapjspadaj,

When we examine what happen on test machine here we see it working correctly.
Especially that the VSS is present.

you may think we don't backup the snapshot due to the presence of C:/Users/user/NTUSER.dat in the log, but you need to understand that is the resulting file name after its conversion in compact.cccompat/compat.cc:555-307 Leave make_wchar_win32_path=\\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolumeShadowCopy1\Users\user\NTUSER.datcompat/compat.cc:1609-307 sizino=8 ino=0 filename=C:/Users/user/NTUSER.dat desktop-vcf7e32-fd (300): findlib/find_one.cc:911-307 File ----: C:/Users/user/NTUSER.dat desktop-vcf7e32-fd (130): filed/backup.cc:535-307 FT_REG saving: C:/Users/user/NTUSER.dat desktop-vcf7e32-fd (130): filed/backup.cc:646-307 filed: sending C:/Users/user/NTUSER.dat to stored
So to be sure we use the same code, could you please install and run the following bareos-fd

In your director you set the debug level to 500 for that client (changing the client name in the following example)

setdebug level=500 trace=1 timestamp=1 client=windows-fd

this will indicate where the tracelog will be written (often directly on C:\)
run one backup job then disable the debugging,
To extract in text mode the joblog in bconsole
@out /tmp/backup-win-fd.joblog
list joblog jobid=XXXXX
q

Then you can zip and attach both trace and joblog here.
Add the fileset used too.

BTW please ensure your fileset contain 
  Enable VSS = yes
as stated in documentation and Windows fileset example.

To add an illustration to the fact that BareOS works as documented and expected.
We run a backup job while the registry hive is open in regedit and we tried to remove it so you get the expected error, the file is in use.

In the background you can see the success of the job backing up that file without any error.
See the details about the status of VSS BackupComplete.

Hi Bruno.

Yes, I understand how it's supposed to work. :-)

OK, I will re-run the tests when I have a spare minute and dump the trace somewhere (the excerpt I posted earlier was with debug level 999 so all messages should have been captured).

And it's not that I _thought_ it wasn't backed up. I know it wasn't backed up. It was throwing errors of being unable to access the file and if I wanted to restore the files I got a zero-length content. I know it should have been converted to the shadowcopy-based filename but wasn't.

I'll check the latest package version first though.

Please, may I ask you to either provided the trace and job log as requested.
As I can argue that we are using 2019 to 2022 with 0% of your troubles

That kind of guerilla can be endless.

If we have traces, joblog fileset etc we may have a chance to reproduce.
If it is reproducible, then there's a chance to have a fix.
If we can elaborate that fix, you may have a chance to solve your trouble.

OK. I had a few spare minutes. I did upgrade to the pre57 release I downloaded today from https://download.bareos.org/current/windows/

The fileset is very simple so that the job is quick and short. It consists of just one file from the windows registry (so that it will be open for sure).


FileSet {
  Name = "Windows_test"


  Enable VSS = yes
  Include {

    File = "C:/windows/system32/config/DEFAULT"
    Options {
       onefs = no
       Signature = MD5
       IgnoreCase = yes
       Portable = no
    }
  }
}

(I tried with both Portable=no as well as Portable=yes as I found some info that it may change backup job behaviour but there was no difference. onefs option is just a remnant from older test jobs, I assume it should have no impact here as we're only targeting a single file).

Attaching the trace from the FD. It's the same as before - the snapshot is being created but the filename is not being converted for read in the end even though the snapshot is there.

Hi Spadajspadaj,

something is wrong with your debug output but im not sure why.  Debug messages are normally formatted as

daemon-name (level): file:line-jobid

For some reason your jobid is 0 (which often means it could not be determined) here.
This should normally not happen and might be why the vss name translation does not work for you.

I tried reproducing the problem you described with your fileset, but it just works for me. 
Would it be possible for you to also submit the joblog for that particular job ?
You can retrieve it using "list joblog jobid=17062".

Sincerely
Sebastian Sura

Hi Sebastian.

Thx for looking into it. This is the job log. Not much interesting stuff in there.

The same thing (the jobid being zero in the trace log) was in the previous trace I attached excerpt from few days ago. But that one was from a different machine. That was a clean win10 installation just for testing the FD, this one is my production setup. Anyway, one thing that can be relatively uncommon (but I don't see why it should affect anything about the job itself) is that I use passive clients (Connection From Client to Director=yes, Heartbeat Interval=60).

Coindidence or not, we also use  Connection From Client to Director=yes

Coindidence or not,  Another host which does not have this setting, has 0 errors!

Yes. It does seem to be the cause.

I switched the client connectivity to the "normal" mode (director to client) and the job completed OK and I had no problems accessing the registry file.

Interesting. We have a mix of client-initiated and not, and at a glance it looks like the only jobs that ever have warnings ("ERR=The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.") are the ones from clients with "Connection From Client To Director = yes". Seems like maybe there's a different code path used when that's enabled, and it hits a bug. Unfortunately we can't switch away from client-initiated for these, we've just been living with the warnings.

We managed to reproduce the issue.  As you already noted, the cause was the "connection from client to director" option.

This was fixed by https://github.com/bareos/bareos/pull/1665

The current next release ( https://download.bareos.org/next/ ) already contains the fix.   Let me know if you tried that version and the issue still persists!

I've only tested with one client, but 24.0.0~pre187.8e12c147a did work with no VSS errors. I'll be watching for this to be backported to 22 (subscription).

Hi Josh,

the backport has already happened in PR 1667. You can try the
pre-release packages from these subscription repositories:
https://download.bareos.com/bareos/testing/CD/bareos-22

Version 22.1.4~pre39 (and every newer version) should contain the fix.
You can safely install the packages from there. An upgrade to the
upcoming version 22.1.4 will be seamless.

Best Regards,
Andreas

Ok that is cool, this similar exists for Bareos 23? Since we're already on 23.0.1, the 22.x would be also a lower version :)

Yes, it is in the pre-release for 23 and also for 21.
