Failed to start vStorage API driver service

tech88kur

Hi All,

 

I was getting the following on running VADP backups, the proxy host was just updated to 8.0.2.6 (All windows machine). I started to get the following on failing backups. ( nsr server - 8.0.2.6, win2k8)

 

nsrvadp_save: Failed to start vStorage API driver service.

 

nsrvadp_save: Failed to Initialise LibVADP Context.

 

The 'NetWorker-8.0-and-Service-Packs-Release-Notes'  on page 84 lists this as known issues with 7.6.2 but that i think is not true. It is an issue in 8.0.2.6 as well.

 

" 

NetWorker uninstallation on VADP proxy host

 

NW125084

 

When the NetWorker client is uninstalled from the VADP proxy host, a prompt to reboot

 

the system appears. If No is selected, and the client is reinstalled without rebooting the

 

system, the VADP backups will fail with the following errors:

 

nsrvadp_save: Failed to start vStorage API driver service.

 

nsrvadp_save: Failed to Initialise LibVADP Context.

 

Workaround

 

If the NetWorker client is to be reinstalled on the same VADP proxy host, then a system

 

reboot is required before performing a VADP backup or restore again.
