VSS crashes SBS 2008 when backup runs

By jdalponte ·
I have a HP ML350 server that has SBS 2008 Premium installed on it. I have had issues from day one. I have cleared up most of them except one.

Every night the server reboots. I narrowed it down to rebooting when the server backup runs.(using the windows backup that was included) I then disabled VSS and it does not crash anymore.

I only know alittle about VSS but I believe during the backup it is used for backing up open files and involved with Exchange during backup.

Has anyone seen this before? Or have any ideas?

If memory serves me correctly, my friend had the same problem with his server, however it was SBS 2003. I believe that he had to disable VSS before running the integrated windows backup system b/c it was causing him the same problem. I do not recall him ever finding a fix for it, but this was about 6 months ago, so things could have changed. Best of luck to you in figureing out this problem.
