3. Server BL460c G6 (1 of 2 host of windows file cluster)

4. HBA QLogic2562 8Gb FC (fw 3.75.03)

Im try build solution for file server with hardware vss (for fast OFF-HOST backup with Backupexec on another server).

But have issue, for begin im try sipmle file backup, when i try backup presented volume (not in CSV) from MSA P2000, backupexec say me - "I cant use hardware vss provider, im use standart microsoft VSS". In windows events on file server have error:

1. CAPIVSSProvider - No RAID Controllers found.

2. CAPIVSSProvider - OnLoad(): Cann't find any HBA or Networking Controller.

Im install:

2. HP MSA 1040/2040 VDS Providers 3.5.0.5
