Iscsilog.dll is not included in the system state backup files on a Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1-based computer

Windows 2008 Comments Off on Iscsilog.dll is not included in the system state backup files on a Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1-based computer

Error description

  • The TSM client may issue the following warning message during a
    backup of the boot drive (usually C:).
    
      ANS1417W Protected system state file
      'C:\Windows\System32\iscsilog.dll' is backed up
      to the drive file space, not system state file space.
    
    This specific file is protected by Windows Resource Protection
    (WRP) but is not enumerated for backup by the Windows VSS System
    Writer. Since files protected by WRP should be part of the VSS
    System Writer, which is part of system state, TSM issues the
    message.
    
    The problem is introduced when Service Pack 1 (SP1) is applied
    to Windows 2008 R2. The problem is detected by the TSM backup-
    archive client as a result of the system state integrity
    verification enhancement made for APAR IC72446.
    
    Initial Impact: Low
    Platform Affected:
    Windows 2008 R2 Sp1

Changing the client GUID on Windows

Windows 2003, Windows 2008 Comments Off on Changing the client GUID on Windows

Question

How do I change the GUID on a Tivoli Storage Manager Backup Archive client?

Answer

GUID is an acronym for Globally Unique IDentifier. The GUIDs are intended to help uniquely identify a particular machine (for reporting purposes), regardless of how many different node names are used on the machine, or which network adapter on the machine is used to connect to the Tivoli Storage Manager server.

In Windows this GUID is stored in the registry under the following location.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Tivoli\Guid
If it is necessary to remove an old GUID and create a new one the following procedure can be followed.
NOTE: This procedure will require you to modify your Windows Registry. Before doing anything, make sure to backup your registry. This is so you can restore your registry should you accidentally remove something you should not have.

  1. Backup your Windows Registry
  2. Close all client GUI windows and stop all client services
  3. Open the registry and browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Tivoli\Guid
  4. Delete/rename the entire GUID folder
  5. Start the client again. This should recreate the GUID folder and a new GUID key

IC67043: ANS4013E ERROR PROCESSING ‘\SYSTEMSTATE\NULL\SYSTEM STATE\SYSTEMSTATE’: INVALID FILE HANDLE DURING SYSTEM STATE BACKUP

Windows 2008 Comments Off on IC67043: ANS4013E ERROR PROCESSING ‘\SYSTEMSTATE\NULL\SYSTEM STATE\SYSTEMSTATE’: INVALID FILE HANDLE DURING SYSTEM STATE BACKUP

Error description

During backup of Windows 2008 systems, if Windows Deployment
Service (WDS) is running, then the VSS WDS Writer might
enumerate directories that do not exist. As a result, the
system state backup will stop.

This APAR is distinguished from IC65828, which addressed files
reported by the VSS System Writer that do not exist.
Local fix
Create the directory that is reported as missing, then try the
backup operation again.
