StorageWorks 2212fc

I have a DL380G5 running Windows 2003 R2 x64 attached to a 2212fc SAN Array. When using Backup Exec v 12 to back up a volume exposed to this Server, I get 'unexpected VSS provider error' Checking the event log, I see:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7034
Date: 8/28/2008
Time: 1:06:05 AM
User: N/A
Computer: HSYAP04
The HP StorageWorks VSS Hardware Provider service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 8 time(s).

For more information, see Help and Support Center at

Installed is the msa2000-fc-vds-vss- driver package.

Any ideas on the cause of this error? Has anybody ever found 2212fc specific information on the HP website? All I've ever found when searching for '2212fc' is information on the 2000fc array.

Hi Robedan, I am getting the same problem, did this ever get fixed?

Everyone else, any suggestions on a fix?
