Backup Fails With Error Code "2155348010"

1 post in this topic

Hi all,

First posting ever to a technical forum, so please treat it kindly..

I have just upgraded from WHS v1 to WHS 2011. The only missing part is to get the backup to external HDDs up and running.

My first aproach was to fire up my trusted WD 2T studio edition II and connect it with ESATA. The disk will not show up in the backup Wizard. but by using Windows Server Backup service under Server Manager i can manage to do a one time backup. When trying to schedule the backups, it fails. I have connected the drives with Esata, USB 2.0 and Firewire, same results. I have also checked the disk with different checking software, the disk is OK.

Edit: i later assigned a Letter to the disk and reformatted it using 512K sectors even that is not the same as byte sectors as described in the thread. Still wont show up in the wizard, but i could selected as a destination using volumes under backup service in Service Manager. At least this disk finally works!

Then i bought a Seagate Goflex 3TB Disk. It shows up in the wizard, but the all the backup fails with the same error code "2155348010"

A very good thread possible explaining the error can be found here: [url=http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/windowsbackup/thread/5d9e2f23-ee70-4d41-8bfc-c9c4068ee4e2/]

From the thread "The windows backup software was designed to work with disks that have 512 bytes per physical sector."

Most high capacity disks today operate with a higher physical bytes per sector number. And its impossible to find that information on the outside of the package when trying to buy a new disk.

Its a list of tested external disks to be found here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/1780.aspx

I have tried to visit a couple of shops to buy one of the recomended disks, but have not found any of them. Could the forum members recomend any external 2T+ disks that works and tell me the preferred way to connect it?

    • I have that update installed and it works ok no denied 403 message, try the direct link to see if it works or there is some weird permissions issue ? https://xxx.remotewebaccess.com/Remote/logon?ReturnUrl=%2FRemote
    • I am getting a 403 error access forbidden when I add xxx.remotewebaccess.com/remote is anyone else getting this since I am running a full version of server 2016 essentials and have had my setup working fine on 2012r2 wondering if its a update that hasn't been patched yet
    • Did anyone else get a 403 access is denied after adding the /remote ?   Ok so update I did a fresh load configed the server for RWA and everything works as it should I am currently running updates to see if its a bad update why I got the 403 fingers crossed hopefully by end of night I will have migrated my data to the 2016 server from my 2012 r2 and as of now you still need a xxx.remotewebaccess.com/remote Update KB3192137 breaks remote webaccess this is why I got 403 error
    • That is a bit over kill on hardware I built mine way cheaper using a 1150 board . My current specs are Motherboard is a MSI Intel Z97 LGA 1150 DDR3 USB 3.0 ATX Motherboard (Z97 PC Mate) Proc is a Intel Xeon E3-1230 v3 3.30 ghz 32 GB ddr3 2 hard drives (Western digital black 2TB and a Western Digital black 3TB) PSU is a Antec EarthWatts EA-380D Green 380 Watt 80 PLUS BRONZE Power Supply added 2 Intel PRO/1000 Pt Dual Port Server Adapter for VMs and intrusion detection and my case is a Rosewill Server Chassis/Server Case/Rackmount Case, 4U Metal Rack Mount Server Chassis with 15 bays  I do not think you will get the benefit of the SSD on the server I have ran HS2011 Server2012 r2 and Server 2016 essentials I have never gone over 9% cpu usage even on heavy load although  with your specs you will not have to upgrade your hardware for quite a while as the server specs are getting less and less your case option is fine if you don't plan on a rack mounted server in my opinion I would build a ddr4 2011 build for my normal rig and maybe use your current rig for a server as long as its an i5 or better and a 1155 or newer setup they have the same instruction sets and would be cheaper on your wallet
    • This page https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server-docs/get-started/deprecated-features does not list the media streaming to be deprecated. I am new to Plex and have that setup but I'm still much more comfortable with the Streaming Services provided by Microsoft. Also, does anybody know why the word "streaming" keeps becoming a link in my post?
