Windows 2016 and systemstate backups

Anyone else have problems with Windows2016 and VSS ? We have had very
little issues on Windows2008/2012 but now it seems to reappear. Looks like
the source of the problem is Windows itself and not SP.

Yes, many "missing" writers and files.

Yes, if it is what I think it is, there is an issue with Windows Server
2016. I think that later releases of Windows will correct this, but not
through hotfixes to the current Windows Server 2016 machine.

On a related note, if you are not familiar with it already, this snip URL
links to the "launch pad" developerworks article for protecting system
state with IBM Spectrum Protect:. Nominally it was written for Windows
Server 2016 and Windows 10, but the principles can also be applied to
earlier Windows operating systems that we support.

http://ibm.biz/system_state_backup_recovery_guidelines

It links to three other topics: best practices for backup, creating the
WinPE recovery image, and restoring the system using the WinPE recovery
image.

A very recent update is the addition of a Windows batch script that
automates the creation of the WinPE ISO image used to recover the system.

Regards,

Andy
