Volume Shadow Copy Service Issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • *Hi All*

     

    I have been having some issues with errors appearing in the Event Log with the image l created, and decided to create a basic XPe image to help find the faults.  The image works fine other than these events appearing in the Event log.         

     

    I created a simple image using the runtime quick start helper macro together with my devices for the motherboard.  I also needed Disk Defragmenter for NTFS, Disk Defragmenter Core and Disk Defragmenter for FAT. In turn this brings in Volume Shadow Copy Service.  I get the following errors in the Event Viewer under Application as follows:

     

    Event Id 8193: Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine CoCreateInstance. hr = 0x80040154.

    Event Id 4097: Volume Shadow Copy Service error: The COM+ Admin catolog instance cannot be created (0x80040154).

     

    I have searched various forums and the internet but have not found an answer to get rid of these errors.  It looks like a number of people have had problems and if anyone can point me in the right direction on finding a solution it would be great.  The answers l found indicated something to do with the COM+ infastructure but did not outline how l go about fixing the problem.   

     

    I am also getting the Event Id: 5728 Could not load any transport.  This also occurs in my basic image and any help on solving this error would be much appreciated.

     

    If l clear all the events and restart l do not see these errors in the Event Viewer, they only occur when the machine is first booted after the FBA has completed.

     

    Any help would be much appreciated.     

     

    Many thanks

  • I realise this is an old thread but did you resolve this issue as I am seeing the same messages?

  • Do both of you have COM and its dependencies in the image ?

  • I have COM Base and COM+ Services and whatever dependencies these have.
    Thanks.

  • KB 940032 (link) appears to deal with this specific VSS error. Could you please try the fix and let us if that resolves the issue ?

    Thanks

    The errors all occur before I logon after FBA and do not occur again so following the instructions in the link will not make any difference. Your suggestion is appreciated however.

    To confirm I have the following errors in the application event log:

    Event Id 8193: Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine CoCreateInstance. hr = 0x80040154.

    Event Id 4097: Volume Shadow Copy Service error: The COM+ Admin catolog instance cannot be created (0x80040154).

    And this error in the System event log:

    Workstation - Could not load any transport.
